In late 2018, we ran a Pink Zero campaign. Our goal was to do it again in 2019 but our products proved a bit too popular! We were too busy trying to keep up with orders to run the campaign.
In 2020, we are still working to support our growing customer base but we felt that we had to do it again.
So, the good news.
1. Pink and Orange Zeros are available starting today
We did a limited runs of Zeros with a Pink flash and another run of Zeros with a Orange flash.
Why did the Pink Zeros get a friend?
Right now it is tough. A pandemic with a resulting economic downturn potentially unlike anything that we have seen for a century. Arborists and tree workers in training or just joining that industry are doing it tough.
As a result, we decided to open up the program to not just women but also men. The Orange version reflects this change.
The other reason is that we have had a lot of requests for the Orange flash dating back to when we released the Gen2 Zeros and changed the flash to green.
The production run of both version is strictly limited.. Once we are out , that is it!
Apart from the flash, the Pink and Orange Zeros are fully fledged Gen2 Zeros with all the great new features outlined in this blog.
2. Pink and Orange is for everyone
Both versions are available in men’s and women’s sizes.
3. Check your favourite retailer
Select retailers are participating. Here’s the list of retailers who will have Pink and/or Zeros in stock.
- Tree Care Machinery
- Sunshine Coast Mowers
- Northeastern Arborist Supplies
- Universal Field Supplies
4. Now for the special part.
We will donate NZD 30 from every sale to create the Next Generation fund to pay for any Clogger chainsaw protection for students currently studying to enter the Tree Care Industry or who graduated over the last 24 months.
5. Why are we doing this?
Getting started in the Tree Care Industry is tough. Having to wear poor fitting, hot chainsaw protection makes it even harder. We want to make it easier for poeple just starting out.
If you are a current student or if you graduated with the last 24 months, apply here. If you know someone who is eligible, let them know and tell them to get their application in.
Applications close Midnight Friday July 31 2020 (New Zealand Standard Time).
We’ll announce the selected applicants on Wednesday August 12 2020.
We have to limit the program to New Zealand, Australian, United States and Canadian residents for now based on our current certifications.
Check out the FAQs for more detail.
If you want to support the next generation of the Tree Care people, buy Pink and Orange Zeros this July.
WHY DID CLOGGER DECIDE TO CREATE THE PINK AND ORANGE ZERO PROGRAM?
One of Clogger’s core missions is to make sure that chainsaw users are protected against the dangers linked to their job. These risks include heat illness, arc flash or a chainsaw accident. It is our role to educate customers on the different options to ensure their safety, but also make sure that they are comfortable and are able to perform their work well.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The process is simple.
- Step 1
Clogger will track all sales and set NZD 30 aside for every pair on Pink or Orange Zero pants sold.
- Step 2
Applicants can apply using this form (be prepared to upload your student id or diploma).
- Step 3
The team at Clogger will review applications and select the top ones.
- Step 4
We will announce and notify the the winners.

The winners choose any of our products and have them shipped to their home at no charge.
