    Me, me... I do!

    For cutting off a couple of fronts... the Silky like Poet & Diamond suggested. But for a major clean up the Sthil MS190 or the 200.

    Yes if you get time I would be nice to see, especially the file because I was looking at the blade today and those are some fine small blades. It will be interesting to see everything else too.
  3. OK

    Here are a few of my weapons:

    This is the BEST for removing fruits from Date Palms. It is small to move around the inside of the canopy and take out the fruits without having to stick your hand in there and without having to remove fronds. It is 10 or 12 ft. fully extended so a small ladder and this work wonders. It is also great for tipping off vines and other small stuff you would have to get on a ladder to do. It was $130 or so.....

    This is the best $80 you will spend. I use this for pygmy dates that you would need a small ladder to do(or ones you don't need a ladder for). European fan palms as well. Also work great on branches up to 1" in diameter. 12ft. extended. The head is articulating and all you have to do is pull down on the little pull cord. I bought it off Amazon for $79 with free shipping. I use this A LOT.

    I will put up more pics tomm....too tired right now....

    I think we may own one of those.. otherwise its the power tools.. top handle saw or "chainsaw on a stick" pole pruner. Always a Stihl product. the couple of bucks that gas or maintenance might cost is no comparison to labor costs and saving an arm or two.. We all know whats its like to trim a palm with the hand pole saw and then try and trim and edge another 20+ yards that day.. I don't wanna keep ice packs as standard equipment in my trucks.

    What's your method of getting up in the palms to use that top handled saw?

    I jump really high.. who says white men can't jump! a ladder, bucket lift, or maybe even a climber in a sticky situation.. or like i said if its a short one.. one of the 16 ft chainsaw on a stick does the trick

    Oh, I thought you might be another one of those "Spiker Types"...
    Chainsaw on a stick, Huh? It that slang for power pruner or does it involve duct tape also? :drinkup:

    Power pruner, but if it broke, duct tape might be a fix.. those suckers are pretty expensive
