  1. The other one was out of view think it was anchored inside its bag in my pick up [emoji6]
  2. Hi mate I have climbed on 11.7 for years and not had any problems 11.6 definitely runs slightly better through the device! I almost always climb wearing pfanner reds which help with grip I also spend nearly all my time doing take downs which means am on spikes which am sure makes me less aware of grip problems because I tend to climb the tree not the rope I really do rate the petzle rope though definitely one of the best ropes for zigzag
  3. You to mate yea it is a little rocket I have a nostalgic attachment to it [emoji4]
  4. Original 200t modified and the rope is 11.6 petzle
  5. It is a original 200t modified buy the Man the legend spud ! And the rope is petzle lovely rope even with my weight it doesn't go flat in the zigzag very little bounce !
  6. Few from today's windy willow ! I had a lovely view of Scarborough all day good lad on the ropes all ways makes a nice day !
  7. Wow that's not what I expected to see in the video nice view though 🧐
  8. Nice job last couple of days not touched a piece of brash
  9. Cant beat a good early start mate get cracked on and like u say if u want to do more and more money offered sound if there gunner treat u like a employee then that wasnt for me unfortunately people don't respect what effort it takes to complete jobs faster its not just hard work it's what u have to of done befor that day to gain that experience to be able to do it faster than there employee if they could of done it u wouldn't be there
  10. Unfortunately skill sets are not recognized wen it comes to payment time with some people! They are keen enough to blow smoke to get you there but once the tree or trees are completed especially if in a timely fashion those types have some strange logic that there chipper made the job fast or the weather was with us today or that was really lucky u could fell that big top [emoji849] it never stopped surprising me the absolute shit that people would come with instead of just saying thanks for your knowledge here is ur money get urself off home
  11. My thoughts exactly I really rate the 462 and like using the 5001 in the tree its great so light really good pick up not sure about its longevity and robustness but time will tell stihl have definitely upped there game massively with these two saws
  12. Copper beech removal today tight drop zone
  13. Usually wear the back handle is funnily enough and I didn't set it down like that on purpose [emoji4]
