Branches still around?

If you’ve got some branches hanging out from that storm this winter – that still need to be chopped – or you can’t make it to our next chainsaw class, maybe you should check out these effective pruning blades we have available for a reciprocating saw! Depending on the size of your work, this combination may actually be a better option than a chainsaw for clearing out those limbs.

They are 9″ long and can be used on branches that are 4″ in diameter. They fit into most reciprocating saws aka ‘sawzalls’ (and we recommend using a corded, though the cordless are handy.)

Wait List Items

Now we are well into our busy season during the spring and summer, some members may have noticed a lot of items are reserved!

The wait list is created when someone would like to borrow an item that is currently checked out. When an item is reserved it can not be renewed and when it comes back, we call the person at the top of the list. They have that day and the whole next day we are open to come pick up the item. After that time we move on to the next person waiting.

Below is a link to the items currently on the wait list and the number of people waiting. Please be advised if there a lot of people waiting for popular items you may not be able to borrow it when you come unless we call you, even if you see them listed in the inventory!
