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.

Cullins Service is always looking to get the job done more effectively and efficiently without jeopardizing the quality of the work. That and we like to play w/ heavy equipment, but what guy doesn’t. This year we added 2 Redmax EBZ8500’s attached the leaf plow to our new Wright Stander I. We also acquired a Ford F350 and fitted it w/ a EZ-Dumper then turned it into a leaf catcher. Along w/ our Scag Giant-vac on our trailer we are doing good While we loved the van this way is much more efficient. Instead of taking 20 min to 1/2 an hour it now takes us 5 mins to dump.Our Leaf Removal setup changes all the time and is fairly unique, but effective. This year we have effectively cut our Leaf Removal jobs by more than 1/2. This time around we decided to try these leaf diverters made of corrugated plastic panels. We were sick of trying to blow large amounts of leaves through small openings. So the diverters kind of funnel them into the place we want without them getting stuck.

We started this property late in the day so we ended up doing some night leaf removal or night scagging. It was a good thing we mounted super bright L.E.D. lights on the wright stander I and the Scag giant-vac. We also had to come back the net day to finish up the other side of the yard.

This year we acquired a Ford F350 Super Duty. We then ripped off the bed and installed an EZ-Dumper. Now I turned that into a leaf catcher which will make things a lot easier on the dumping part. I documented that process and will share w/ everyone as well. I tried looking everywhere for ideas and help making a leaf catcher on the back of a truck. I didn’t have much luck so I designed it myself and will share w/ others. Seeing we started by using tarps w/ a couple blowers and the van now we have the truck w/ a dumper I’d say we come a long way. As hard and time consuming as it was using the tarps I’m glad we did it. It makes us appreciate what we have now.

How to DIY tune up Backpack Leaf Blower 150BT Husqvarna by Cullins Service

The backpack leaf blower we are tuning up today is a Husqvarna 150BT Backpack Leaf Blower. But the techniques I will show you can apply to most leaf blowers.
Keeping your equipment in top shape is not only good for your equipment, but also good for your business. You want your blower to start up right away every time. These fairly cheap and quick steps can make life easier for you. A couple filters are cheaper to replace every once in a while than a new carburetor when debris gets clogged in it.

Take care of your equipment and they will take care of you.

What You will need:

-Backpack blower
-Spark Plug (check owners manual for correct part)
-Fuel Filter (check owners manual for correct part)
-Air Filter (check owners manual for correct part)
-Forceps, bent coat hanger or whatever you can find to safely get the fuel line and filter from the tank
-Socket wrench and socket or scrench tool (to remove spark plug)

Cullins Service is always looking to get the job done more effectively and efficiently without jeopardizing the quality of the work. That and we like to play w/ heavy equipment, but what guy doesn’t. So we got a leaf plow and mounted it to our Husquvarna Zero Turn. We also turned our van into a leaf catcher and attached a Scag Giant-vac to our trailer. The van leaf catcher works great except the unloading of all the chopped up leaves that were blown into the van going like 800 miles an hour. You can see that in the video. The Leaf Removal setup is fairly unique, but effective. We effectively cut our Leaf Removal jobs by more than 1/2.

  Bush Removal and Bush Planting Nantucket Privet in Brookline, Ma Cullins Service

Today Cullins Service is in Brookline, Ma. We have been working on this property for a little over a year, and have almost completely redone the whole property. The client is great and likes to work alongside us at times.

When we first came to this property the bushes were kinda out of control, but we have since tamed them down. These bushes seem to have rubbed our client the wrong way because every time we showed up for landscaping services she wanted them cut shorter until she decided to just remove them alltogether.

No problem Cullins Service can handle that. So with that we cut them down and removed the root system. Cant have roots were your going to plant.

First thing we had to do is match up the bushes to the rest of the hedge. We wanted a uniform look all the way around. We were lucky with these as they were a pretty common hedge,  a Nantucket Privet hedge.

Now we have to line up a straight line and space the bushes so they look good.  They will grow in and come together to form a hedge so you don’t want them to far apart. You also don’t want them too close because the roots need space to grow. About a foot and 1/2 to 2 feet is good. Make sure you plant them correctly and give them plenty of water so they can establish themselves. So far I have not lost any flowers or bushes that I have planted, and I’m not planning on loosing any.  We had organic loam, fertilizer, peat moss and much to properly plant these bushes.

With all the bushes in place in the ground we made a well around the roots to keep water in then we put more fertilizer down and covered all around the top w/ peat moss. Now to finish the project we covered the row of Nantucket privet bushes with about 3 inches of mulch. Not only is it decorative and make the property look nice. There are also a few practical reasons for this as well. The mulch will hold water better to keep the bushes roots wet of moist on hot days. Especially when they are first planted they need all the water they can get. Mulch also keeps away weeds, and breaks down into the soil to create a compost that turns into food for the bush.

Finally we installed drip irrigation around the bushes to keep them watered. So the client can just enjoy the new bushes and not have to worry about them drying out. We had fun on this job and we are and so is the client very pleased with the results.

Cullins Service Leaf Removal and Cleanup Service Needham Property

Cullins Service Leaf Removal and Cleanup Service Before

Cullins Service Leaf Removal and Cleanup Service for one of our Needham properties. Cullins Service provided our full Leaf Removal Service for this great property. We brought out our 2 Echo PB-250 Blowers, JRCO Leaf Plow mounted to Husqvarna Z246 Zero Turn and our new Scag TLS20W-29BV Giant Vac. Obviously we started blowing in the back. In most cases trying to move large piles of leaves can be difficult and time consuming so we brought our JRCO Leaf Plow mounted to Husqvarna Z246 Zero Turn. It plows massive piles of leaves anywhere real quick. This property had plenty of leaves to plow. The plow moves most of the leaves, but leaves a few behind. Not really a problem. The blowers make short work of that. When all the leaves are brought to the front either by leaf plow or blowing it’s

time to vac them up. When we started out we used to use tarps. We filled them and stuffed them into the van. This year we came packing the big guns in the form of a 29hp Scag Giant Vac. We converted the back of the van into a leaf hopper (a gallery of that process will be available soon), and mounted the Scag Giant Vac onto our trailer. It’s a great setup because we can still fit plenty of equipment on the trailer. We saved a great deal of time using the Scag Leaf Vac. It sucked the leaves right up.

After Cullins Service finished our Leaf Removal Service there were also some flower beds to clean out. We removed the dead vegetation to make it look better and make room for new growth next year. We also mowed the grass which needed to be done and helps pick up any leaves left over from

Cullins Service acquired this property this year and it has become a regular. We had already done an initial cleanup now we are doing routine maintenance. This time though we have some tree work to do.

First Cullins Service weeded out the front flower bed. We also removed some old bushes, and trimmed dead parts off a few bushes to clean them up. In the back yard he had a tree with a broken branch and some other branches that were to heavy. They were leaning down so much they were touching the grass. So to start we cut the broken branch off. We then strategically cut branches off the low hanging branches to lessen the weight and raise the branches up. We wanted the cuts to be effective without making the tree look like it was just chopped up it has to look natural. We cut a few more low hanging branches in the backyard the cut the grass real nice with our Turf Beast 54 in. 22 HP Subaru Commercial

Cullins Service Landscapers Cutting Bushes and Removing Bush Stumps Newton Property

This job came out of nowhere. We were just coming home from another job, and all of a sudden a gentleman appears out of nowhere.

He was a neighbor from just down the street. He had been doing work on his yard for a while now. Cullins Service are landscapers so when we see work being done in someones yard of course we wonder what they are doing. This guy was tearing up his whole yard, removing all his grass so Cullins Service knew it had to do w/ grass.

Anyway he approaches us and tells us he needs some bushes removed from his yard. So we say o.k. and follow him down the street to survey the job. We get down there and there are seven massive bushes to be cut and removed.  Cullins Service accepts the job.

So a couple days later we show up w/ a CS-330t Echo chainsaw, some chains, 4 inch 4000 lb straps and a special tool that made the job a lot easier a “spare tire”. We made short work of the tops of the bushes w/ our CS-330t Echo chainsaw. We put that CS-330t Echo chainsaw through a lot, and it still tears through everything like a beast. Just keep the chain sharp and go. Then We put the spare tire next to the stump, and put the chain over the top. What happens is instead of pulling the stump out straight (which in this case was  almost impossible) it pulls the stump up and out. If Cullins Service didn’t have the spare tire we would have been there all day digging and cutting.

So the customer was happy his bushes and stumps were removed. The next day he had grass sod put down, and his yard looks good.
