Australia is it really worth it??

Recommended Posts

Im heading out in April, was gona buy a new pair of protective trousers but since searching for ozy tree work vids on the net it doesent look like any of them are wearing them, am i going too need them or wasting my money?

 

We don't wear cut resistant trousers over here because we never make mistakes...yeah right. Type A's (front protection only) are better since it can get pretty hot. I work in the mountains west of Sydney and only break out the Type C Stein Revolutions on the coldest winter days (that's still above 5 degrees C though.) I stick with the NZ made Clogger arborist trousers as the AU/NZ made STIHL pants don't have zip up pockets.

 

Bring you cut resistant boots too - they're twice the price in these parts (although like the pants, they're not actually a legal requirement when using a chainsaw)

Just been looking at visa's with me wanting to take the wife and kids do you have to get a visa for each person, or can you get a family one ??

Could be unfortunate if I had to leave them at the airport :001_tt2:
