Chaps.....
« on: June 21, 2010, 06:33:25 PM »
It's time for me to invest in a good set of chaps....been cutting for years without, and I'm getting wiseras time passes on this here planet!
Price is an option....so. 


Looked at a few online, but I'm not really sure on the sizing thing.  And as luck would have it, there is not a place locally that sells them.  Might be able to find something in Maine while I'm on vacation, but I haven't been up there in two years.  So I'm not even sure where to look for a shop up there....


What is a good set for a decent price?
What brand do you use?
Where did you get 'em(if you remember)?
What was the price tag?

Thanks Kirk...

Been looking most at Bailey's(really nice products at a fair price-shameless plug), but I'd really like to try some on to see what I like the best.  Or at least get the advise from folks that have had a set for a while to see if they like theirs.
Wish I had a store here locally to look at something?  But I guess it's due to places like the above mentioned that keeps these stores from doing business...kind of a catch 22 deal!  I for one would actually pay a little more to go to a store and get the product. But I imagine a lot of folks would look, get the size they need, and then order for a few dollars less online.

What are you using Kirk?  Do you wear them while your milling?  Or would they just be in the way?

I have a pair of Husky chaps and love them and wear them ANY time I am using my chain saw.

I dont use them while milling with my sawmill, but then again its a bandmill.  I would wear them if it was a chainsaw mill.

Stop over at Tractor Supply.  They should carry Stihl chaps or just west of the exit on 67 north of you is a Husky dealer and they carry them. 

I think if you go east at that same exit there is a Waffle House.

Good thing I called before driving down there....

We can order what you want, but we don't stock them....says a very nicely spoken lady.
So the search continues................

Was it the place on Hwy64, little shop that has a wooden siding, about 1/2mi off the Highway....town is Beebe.

BEEBE LAWN & POWER EQUIPMENT....maybe?


I'll give them a call in the morning..

It's still there.  They don't do many auctions anymore, but there is a flea market(bunch of crap) there every Saturday morning.
That's the beauty of small-ish towns....hardly anything ever changes!
