Need A Trim?


Recommended Posts

I've seen that thing in operation before, but I don't recall the pilot being so...so....all over the place. He makes it look like it's a handfull to operate.

I'm sure it's just a hacking machine without much precision and I'm sure, for it's intended use along secluded powerlines, it's much faster and cheaper than sending out a crew with chain saws and trimmers.

I wonder how it drives the saws? Looks like alot of power is needed.

The covered unit above all those blades, but also on the line is a large CC. snowmobile engine that drives it all and there's a quick-disconnect in case of trouble..........and "NO!".....you don't want to do it with a short line. Causes one to have a "bad hair day" I'm told. :down: :lol:


Saw one operating under contract to Arkansas State for their power grid. Arkansas is the poorest State in the Union, so you don't want to know and wouldn't believe what that dude is making per day under contract. Then again......a steady paycheque is a steady paycheque. :lol:
