Requirements for use of large saws???

Recommended Posts

small trees = up to guide bar length

medium trees = 1.5 times guide bar length

large trees = twice guide bar and above

solution = bigger guide bar:thumbup1:

 

That is from the Mr Goss guide book then?. Not from NPTC for sure

You have to have one at hand first Tommer.

 

On a serious note, check the NPTC website for further quals.

Its all about "reccommended" bar lengths and butt sizes, an assessor wont get a tape measure out!

 

Its a "reccommended" bar length of 15inches for all assessments regardless of butt size, although my experiences of wanting to do anything more advanced than CS32 has resulted in numerous assessors talking balls and insisting "anything more than CS31 is pointless as no-one cuts down big trees anymore"

 

Just dont do anything you dont feel confident with - If we all did "by the book" we might as well not bother.

All NPTC assessments reccommended" bar length 15 in

CS31 trees up to 15in

CS32 is now 15in + and no upper limit..

CS33 does not exist any more

as for the cs33 - thats what i was told, so does mean i have no limit on what i can do? from having a cs32

 

Hate to say this if you took the old CS32 it will say fell medium sized trees.

Translated means trees 15 to 30 inches in diameter, so you are restricted to this limit.

The new CS32 says fell and process trees over 380mm, so there is now no upper limit.

Whether you agree or disagree it is NPTC that have made the changes.
