Is the ms 192 T a climbing saw? and just out of curiosity what did it run you because i was using a climbing saw before and really liked it because of the fact that you could like you said cut and grab the branch or direct it to where you wanted it to go.

I'm not sure what classes i am going to take but do you know what ones you are going to take an MAHTS?

Yea your right I was thinking of the T 200 the higher powered model i think I had someone tell me they though it was around 600 but I am definitly going to pick up a saw soon.

I am definitly going to take the EP Henery authorized permeable paver installer class just got to see what other ones I am going to take.

I get my salt and calcium through a supply company for fertilized and a other landscape products. Its cheaper for me to buy it through them vs lowes or home depot. If you can find one of these supply places in your area. Also I would try to sell her on calcium over salt, salt can do damage to pavers and concrete. Its more expensive but worth it IMO. Also if you are putting it down on pavers make sure they are atleast 1 year old because from what I hear you can damage them if you put salt or any de-icing product on newly installed pavers. Also make sure you spread it evenly I have had idiots work for me and take a hand full and just drop it into a pile and expect it to cover a whole driveway.
