i used this job as an excuse to buy me a new pole saw and a new 20" chain saw!! i tarped it before i left!

Yeah I did the same as you last year on purchasing a pole saw. I had enough using a frame ladders. finally broke down and got me one.

I also had a big brush clearing job and was tired of using the bed of my truck, so I got an open trailer. Man its nice having the right tools, you will laugh when a big job goes so much faster and you get more for your money cuz your in and out and on to the next job.
