Pocket Wrench

The Top Saw Pocket Wrench from Able International allows arborists to work on any chain saw in the field. It measures 4.5 inches long and fits in a pocket or the included sheath. It has a large screwdriver for bar adjustment, bar groove cleaning tool, T27 Torx, 4 mm Allen wrench and small screwdriver for fuel and bar oil adjustment. The 13 mm socket fits the bar nut on most half or full wrap handle chain saws. The tool can also be used as a handle for a chain saw file and has a 19 mm deep socket that reverses to a 10 or 16 mm socket.

Leave it to Beever

Morbark has revamped its 6-inch capacity Beever M6R Brush Chipper (previously the Clipper 6). The 12-inch diameter, two-knife machined rotor with removable drum shaft and .5-inch thick, dual-edged knives allows full knife coverage with even wear. Knives are held in place by four grade 8 hex head bolts to reduce changing time. The chipper features a 180-degree silo swivel discharge, direct drive with belt power transfer and a 27 hp Kohler engine with better side load capabilities. Ergonomic infeed design standard, 12 percent larger infeed perimeter opening, hydraulic drum braking system and larger tires improve safety.

Don’t Fall

The Kong Back-Up from U.S. Rigging Supply is a fall arrester that follows the operator in both directions and stops falls. By shifting the special button on the lock mode, the Back-Up can be used as a positioning device or a normal locking device. In free mode, it can move in both directions; in lock mode, it only slides up, but can be moved down using one hand. The stainless steel and light alloy Back-Up eliminates the shock effects on ropes caused by traditional self-locking rope grabs with toothed cams. It weighs 205 grams without connector and measures 99.5 by 70 mm.

Stay Fresh and Dry

Arborwear has introduced the Tech T-Shirt, available in forest green and athletic gray in sizes from small through 2XL. Constructed from a blend of 85 percent polyester and 15 percent cotton, it has a soft, comfortable feel and wicks moisture away from the skin. Made with Dri-Release fabric and the antimicrobial benefits of Fresh-Guard, it also helps control odor.
