ladders and chainsaws

Just a note to you guys who don't cut a lot If you have to get on a ladder to cut with a chainsaw, DON'T DO IT.

If you can't drop the tree then hire someone who can. There is nothing more dangerous than getting on a ladder with a chainsaw.

There have been a couple of incidents around where I live/work with home owners on ladders cutting branches and were seriously injured. At work we either climb (spikes and belt in a saddle) or in the bucket truck.

There are special saws called top handle saws (for instance Stihl MS200T) which are designed for climbers and bucket truck users. Even these are not safe on a ladder.

No boat, back in the suds.

What he said.... Good advice for sure. I watched my neighbor try this stunt and ended up with 65 stitches, and a ruined pair of Carhartt pants.

A few years back a guy down the street was cutting from a ladder.He cut his leg quite badly and of course fell breaking his back in the process.

So my post was prompted by this asshat who just bought 5 acres down the street from me. I see him on a ladder, IN THE RAIN, the other day trying to cut one limb off a DEAD tree. So I stop and asked if he wanted me to drop the tree for him explaining that I lead the cutting crew at Crystal lake GC. He says: I know what the F&&^^K I'm doing. OK then, off I go.
Yup, wait for it The sound of Sirens! Yup, he fell off the ladder and needed 30+ stitches.

So much for "I know what the F*&^$%K I'm doing.

Amazing isn't it?

There is no amount of wisdom that can help people like that.
