Is the HAIX a good brand ?
Anyone have the Stihl performance? Looks to be the same as the HAIX xr200
I wonder if this is a better question fer the pro arborist forum, as most folks round here where leather boots, be they calked or rubber soled
There a many good makers of boots. Nick's, Wesco, White's and Danner (both owned by a Japanese company), Baker, Hoffman, Drew's, Viberg. My next pair will likely be a chainsaw protective boot like Haix or Scaffel or Hoffman if they are wide enough.
Think I’ll look at the HAIX.
Probably ought to mention Viking as a chainsaw protective boot; all the planting/thinning crews around here swear by 'em.
Vikings are great! I'm 1.5% Scandinavian so the fit is perfect.
I don't like the lack of ankle support, but they hold up to all kinds of abuse so I have no real complaints.
What's up with the "kiltie" tongue of toothed leather that you see on the front some so-called logging boots?
That always looked like it would grab everything you walked through and trip you like concertina wire wrapped around your boots...
I've been eyeing up the new haix protector ultra's. Look like a good chainsaw rated boot
It protects the tongue from the laces as well as adding an extra layer over the front of your ankle, both adding padding and getting more life out of yer boots. They are normally around 8" over all,
The fringe is odd but slightly better the a flap of leather...
Never noticed em gettin hung up on much
Huh. Thanks for the reply. Did not know that the kiltie part extended up in front of the tongue...
