Some color that shows up well when you drop it in a foot of snow!

Paint it camo so when you cant find it you can get back to work doing it the tried and true way without fumbling trying to attach the dang thing to a lateral tight against the tree. Man I hate those things.

I painted mine a red, but now I think I would have painted it a Blue. Nothing out there in the woods is blue so it should stand out. There is a lot of reds, yellows, and oranges depending on the time of year.

But camo or a leaf pattern would be nice.

Mines still in primer, but I have a piece of fluorescent orange plastic surveyors tape tied to the handle. Sticks out no matter where or when I drop. It.

I've been in the woods the last week or so putting up mainlines and lats. Those red handle wire cutters will be lost before long.

Since this isn't mine and we had snow yesterday I'm thinking white. Lol....

Yup looks good Bob. The next pair think about putting a line cutter on there as well. Makes adding drops simple IMO.

Looks like you have a fledgling business on your hands, Bob. I'll buy the first 2. One for the raffle and one for 3rd's dad.

How about I make you the tool and your daughter takes a pic with you holding the ported Stihl 460 with a 28" bar ? Better yet, I think a group photo with Xak and Jake in it as well! That way all 3 of the husky fan club members will be included ! Deal?
