I am in the tree care industry professionally, and let me tell ya the Big Shot, wow they work great, I can shoot over branches over 80' with enough under brush clearance.

Did you try the cradle throw??? or google search how to throw a throw weight.

I like to pinch up about 3 feet above the throw weight and make a slip knot. Then I toss it back and forth like I was going to toss you a bean bag, and then bam on up.

If you like to read and like a good over few I would highly recommend two books.

Tree Climbers Companion (Shorter)

(One of my favorite books) - Fundamentals of General Tree Work by G.F. Bernak

Hope this helps.
It was some time ago, but I got those books and videos out of the library.
Finally I bought a body harness and lanyard from Grainger; didn't get the fall arrester.
And I just got the light weight elec. chain saw from Remington; have had a gas saw for years now.

I wouldn't mind working for free as part of a ground crew but it's like selling iceboxes to Eskimos. I think it's because somehow I've gotten, and look, too old.

Haha,

Well I dont think I would pull that out on of my job sites but if it works it works

If you have more then a few, they have fiberglass 6' or 8' ft poles that link together like a pole brush and stick and have specific heads that attach on to the end a little more stable then the posted picture but hey let me tell you before I entered the tree care industry professionally I have used your method many of times with good success on small branches

What do you use for a pole?
Is this distance practical?
How do you work the oiler?
I found an electric pole saw that reaches to 30 feet. It's called the "extended reach pole saws" Google it up and see if that helps.
