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.

This gentleman was a neighbor of the house next door. He needed a landscaper and we were in the right place at the right time. He wanted to sell his house and his realtor recommended some curb appeal. Look it up curb appeal helps to sell your house. If your home’s curb appeal makes a great first impression, everyone — including potential home buyers will want to see what’s inside.

This client didn’t want to go crazy, but he wanted it to look good. We started trimming the trees away from his house. You always want to keep tree branches at least 12 – 19 inches away from your house. You could scratch and damage the house and insects and rodents can easily get into your house, just to name a few. We also removed some branches of the neighbors that was coming over into his yard. We also trimmed a tree to open up his driveway area. Finally we removed a dead pear tree that his grandfather had planted many years ago, and that was it for tree work. Of course we used the echo CS 330T and our new Stihl MS 193T.

We then removed all leaves, debris and bushes that were to be removed. We also trimmed up some bushes and tied some ups well. We weeded out the flower bed and god rid of all the clutter. I wanted the flowers and bushes to pop, not be lost in a mess. After the cleanup we started planting the flowers and bushes. We wanted to add color to the flower beds.

The realtor didn’t want anything done to the grass, so we could only mow it. Oher than 4that the house looks great and is now on the market.

Cullins Service got a call to remove some dangerously close branches to a roof in Allston. A job like this with the branches so close to the house is tricky,  but Cullins Service was up for it. We got the job done w/ the right tools and the help of some carefully placed ropes to keep the branches away from the house and lower them down safely. We like a challenge and this was no exception.

We got to use our new echo pole saw attachment to our PAS-266 w/ 2 3 foot extensions. She worked great. The PAS has proven to be an invaluable tool in our arsenal. We also got to use some of our climbing gear. Some ropes, harness and various other cool things. And of course we used the Echo CS 330T chainsaw.

We took down 4 main branches and a few secondary branches. Got them safely away from the roof and cleaned it up a bit. The job was finished without a hitch and everyone involved was happy at completion including the roof.

  How to Sharpen a Chainsaw Check Depth Gauge DIY Echo CS 330T Cullins Service

We at Cullins Service believes that if you take care of your equipment that it will take care of you. Same thing   w/ customers and well pretty much everything else in your life. So if you get anything out of this entry take those words of wisdom and apply them to your life. Anyway lets now apply them to your chainsaw.

This chainsaw is a Echo CS 330T. It’s a top-handled 14 inch climbing saw. She has been very good to us, and there is nothing more I like to do than keep her in good shape. This time it’s cleaning her up, checking er over for worn or broke parts, sharpening the chain, and checking the depth gauge. I’m performing these tasks on a Echo CS 330T, but the same principles apply to most chainsaws in general.

In this DIY How to sharpen a Chansaw I will show you how to disassemble your chainsaw to clean her out. I don’t go into detail about it, maybe in another video. I will show you two ways to sharpen your chainsaw. How to do it w/ round hand files and w/ an Electric sharpener. I know there are more, but these are my two methods.

What You will need

      • -For both 3/8 and 0.404 inch chains, use a 7/32 inch file.
    • -A 6 inch flat file
    • -A file guide (Helps hold the file at the correct height and orientation)
    • -A depth-gauge
    • -A Vise or A stump vise

or

    • -Flathead Screwdriver

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.
