Jump to: navigation, search

The VOC has a long history of up-keeping our Trails and Huts all through the work of volunteers. In order to accomplish this the VOC own and maintains a set of tools specifically for the purpose of Workhikes. These tools are available at no charge/deposit for any group running a workhike. This page shows the up to date information for how many tools we have available for use. Also included are the Website links for the exec should any tools need replacing. Donations of any previously used but good quality tools for our Inventory are more than welcome!


Power Tools

The VOC currently owns and maintains 1 brush saw and 1 chain saw.

Brush Saws

Brush Saws (or Death Machines) are similar to weed-wackers but have more power and use a blade rather than a string at the bottom of the pole. Depending on the cc, the geometry and the engine they can cost anywhere from $500 to $2000.

For everything you could possibly want to know about brush saws a good website to look at is here: http://brushdestructor.com/brushdestructor-home-page/everything-you-should-know-about-brush-cutters-to-make-the-right-buying-decisions/






Chain Saws
