On top of her game – Kiah Martin on being one of the best arborist in the world
Remember when you were a child and climbed trees? Some people keep climbing and become arborists. And some of them become the best in the world. One of those super pros is Kiah Martin, a world champion winning arborist based in Melbourne. This is her story.
Safer work at fast pace along power line corridors
Things move quickly when a team is felling trees and cutting branches along a power line corridor. It's a tough job that requires high precision at all times. Gerry Breton, Safety Director at Lucas Tree Experts, decided at an early stage to invest in Husqvarna saws with the unique chain brake TrioBrake. It proved to be a profitable investment. Chainsaw user Bill Raleigh and his colleagues are now working smarter – using better working techniques and working more safely and ergonomically.
Efficient logging in heat at high altitude
It's a warm, dry, remote location high in the mountains. Big trees are felled here at a rapid rate on the steep slopes. It's a tough environment that makes great demands on both the loggers and their machines. Jaime Wagenfuhr and his son Graham are enjoying every minute. Using chainsaws with the self-adjusting carburettor AutoTune allows them to work unhindered and efficiently – at all altitudes and at all temperatures.
