    Here's a pick of a doug fir I cut on a fire this past summer. I was using a 42" bar on a MS660. The tree was probably 5+ ft on the butt and seriously leaned at probably a 45 degree angle toward the road. A shallow under cut and the end result is...

    Nice pic.. I really miss my fire days just for the interesting cutting it provided. I'm a big fan of the boring backcut on those heavy leaners but even that isn't always a sure bet. I had a downhill leaner pull loose about 3/4 through the bore cut last week while firewooding...my boxers are still recovering from that pucker. :greenchainsaw:

    Dang,
    Did that explode on you while at the stump or did you see or hear it start to go and have time to get the hell away?

    Dang Slinger, you are going to have to work on that 66 some more if you want to keep up on the back cut of those head leaners.:cheers:
    Glad it turned out ok for you.
    When I was 16 the logger i worked for in AL had a much smaller pine blow up on him while he was dogging the saw around the back of the tree. A splinter busted the back of his hand open. You could see the a tendon through the wound. The tough old man put some pine sap on it, smoked a cigarette and went back to work.

    Nah, there's usually time.

    Sling'r, I feel like I'm slipping or something, I didn't realize you did fire work. Good deal. I'm thankful for the pro fallers that'll come out and take care of the stuff we agency C fallers are too sissy to fall. Great learning for us, too. Nice pic, nice saw.

    +1 When the "S" hits you can never have too many qualified fellers.
