    You'd probably be surprised how many climbers that've cut themselves outta the tree accidentally with their trimsaws severing their climb lines.

    One of the reasons so many pros like to finish trigger cuts with a handsaw, before takin a ride.

    Funny that I began my career in this biz trimming palms from the top down, flailing away, spiraling downwards, nonstop with my dual triggered Super 2's, nicking my chain lanyard without a care, other than dulling my saw!

    I've noted how Australians are kinda stuck on chain use in their crane takedowns, by law!

    Gotta stay on your toes n know when to duck dodge or hide, eh mates?

    Steel, instilling confidence!

    Really? Chain? By law?
