Cullins Service Tree Removal Climbing

Cullins Service Tree Removal Climbing

TreeMotion climbing Harness w/ lanyard Buckingham Rope Grab Length Adjustment Device. I was using a Buckingham saddle, but it didn’t feel that secure or comfortable. The treemotion harness fits nice and it gives me more maneuverability when I’m climbing around in a tree. I decided to use my Echo CS330T tree saw over my stihl MS 193T tree saw. I like both the saws, but the Echo is generally my go to saw. I just got a new Echo CS 355T top handle tree saw w/ a 16 in bar, and I can’t wait to try it out. I will be breaking in my Echo CS 355T Chainsaw soon. This was a fun climb, and the spikes were great. It was a easy removal which was nice so I could get used to the tree spikes. Everything went great the tree came down safely even though I was right next to some cable lines.

How to DIY Build and Paint EZ-Dumper Walls on Ford F350 Super Duty

The dumper we are adding sides to is an EZ-dumper. We had our bed ripped off our Ford F350 and replaced w/ the EZ-Dumper. A custom frame was required, but that’s a different story. So this DIY is for an EZ-Dumper, but the same basic principle works w/ other dumpers.

I’m aware I may be going a bit overboard w/ this project. Most landscapers just throw up some boards and that’s it. I like to make things look good, and your truck and equipment is what people will see when you first pull up. So I like to make a good impression.

This DIY project was pretty easy. Just cut some boards stack ’em up and bolt ’em in place. I could not find any

DIY’s or how to’s on the net for dump walls, and even though it is easy some people might want a little direction.

So I got some boards, 2 X 4’s Hardware, paint and some tools. Then I started building. I’m very happy w/ the way it turned out. We did this project this past summer which is why I’m wearing short sleeves and have fully greened trees around in January. So We hope you enjoy this How to and learn something from it.
