Johnson City Power Board and Haverfield Aviation Own the Sky with Flying Power Saw!
“I love the smell of sawdust in the morning!”
The Johnson City Power Board, has literally kicked it up a notch with regards to their tree-trimming prowess, while simultaneously taking the term “chopper” to a whole new level. The narrator of the video describes their high-flying capability perfectly, “a nerve racking dance of grace and violence,” I couldn’t have said it better myself.
To sum up what this machine does: It trims trees with a 10-bladed saw, dangling within inches of energized power lines. Think of this as a team of rappelling robot ninjas, with a green thumb! I’m not sure if the chopper is blasting “Wagner: Ride of the Valkyries” from a PA system, but I’m sure every person, animal and tree in the surrounding area is sufficiently terrified!
