Meet Arbtalk member “VEG”. He just bought an Easy-Lift Harness after seeing it at the APF Exhibition and had some very kind words about his experience it with a power hedger.
“Been using the ELH this week, what a really great tool. Takes all the weight off my arms hedge cutting has become a pleasure again. I was suffering a burning pain in my shoulder blade, chiropractor said it was from using heavy tools at full stretch of my arms. I have cut some very large hedges with it this week and have really enjoyed doing them. My employer paid for it but in honesty after using it I would have paid for it myself as I have got no pain in my shoulder at all. Three lads at work have had a go and they are also amazed at how easy it is to use.
It has definitely increased production. I used it on a hedge the other day that I usually have to stop several times. I did it all in one go just to see how I felt afterwards. I had no burning pain in my shoulder which I know I would have had with several stops if I hadn’t been using the ELH. We have cut a hedge without it since and it is then that you truly realise how much strain it takes off you, I am well impressed and wont be doing any hedge without it.”
The APF Exhibition 2012 in the United Kingdom was a great success for the Easy-Lift Harness. We met lots of new people and made several new connections overseas. Thanks again to FR Jones and Son for providing a demo area for the Easy-Lift Harness and to Arbtalk for their continued support of the product.

This past Saturday, July 21, 2012, John and Akos featured the Easy-Lift Harness along with 2 other entries. Check out the audio below of the Easy-Lift Harness pitch.
Arbtalk member Steve (aka tractorboy1) recently had some kind words to say about his Easy-Lift Harness. Thanks again Steve.
“Been using the ELH for the last couple of days. Great bit of kit, had a wide beach hedge to do yesterday dread doing it every year. Can just about do it from one side with the echo long reach. Normally kills my arms by the end of the day, but with the ELH it was actually a pleasure to do.
The hedge normally takes a 8 hours to do but only took 6 1/2 this year because you can just keep cutting without a break.”
Here’s a little something worth talking about. There’s two brand new apps now available for arborists all around the world. From the UK based forum “Arbtalk” come the Knot App and the Fungi App for iPhone, iPad or Android.
The Knot App includes over 50 knots for every kind of application you could imagine. See screenshot below
And as you may have guessed the Fungi App helps identify fungi with color photos and categories. See screenshot below
Both are very handy applications for the arborist on the go. Each app retails for just under £3 and pay for themselves many times over with quick and useful information right when you need it.
Our latest customer, Mr. Michael Klane of Queensland, Australia, had more than just a few kind words to share with us about his new Easy-Lift Harness. We’re glad to hear Michael is loving his Easy-Lift and we thought we would share his comments and photos with you. Enjoy.
“Wow………after using the Easy Lift Harness myself I cannot believe the difference in time management and ease of use of the equipment. In a job that would normally take me 4 hours to complete, it is now only taking me 2 – 2.5 hours to complete. When not using the Easy Lift Harness I suffered from neck and shoulder pain for a few days after. With the Easy Lift Harness I am finding I do not suffer from any neck or shoulder pain as the equipment takes all the weight away. This is a fantastic product that I am so glad I stumbled across on the internet. I have worked in the Horticultural Industry for over 15 years and have never seen such an innovative piece of equipment.”
The annual Customer Appreciation Day at Royal Edger and Mower in Pinellas Park, FL was a successful event. We met lots of folks and let them see the Easy-Lift Harness for themselves in person. Here’s a few photos and a video of the day’s events including the riding mower obstacle course. Enjoy!
We had a very successful show for our first year at the New England Grows conference 2012 in Boston. We sold every Easy-Lift Harness that we brought and made lots of great connections with people in the Landscaping, Arboriculture & Nursery Growers industries. Here’s a few pics we captured during the event.
