Look at this guy "helping" a neighbor removing a trunk.
I don't make fun of him - he does that himself.


Best scenes:
8:14 "butter-cup undercut" :clap:
9:17 "direction lottery" hinges :wtf:

You'd like working with me, I always say that. I like to keep folks guessing, why not I am :laugh:.
Had a very large oak that was a slight leaner over my buddies new house, nothing a wedge couldn't handle...he calls me and goes 'You cut tree's right?' Yeah. You want to take one down for me? Sure.

Got everything looking like I really know what I'm doing...then as I'm about to start the undercut I look at him, look up, look at him and go...damn, this is a pretty big tree for my first one...hope those guys on YouTube were right...and start the saw lol

Hmmm. Interesting. I'm confused about all of the notching and hinging.. it seems to me that with a couple of wedges, he could have just bucked that entire trunk into logs from the top down easier than trying to "fell" it twice.. of course I am an electrician, so don't take my opinion as advise in any form.... Am I wrong for thinking this way?

Anyone with half a brain would have had that tree down in a quarter of the time it took him to do it.

Anyone with any prior experience would have had it down in a sixteenth.

Good points:
1. He had proper PPE.
2. No one got hurt.
3. No property damage.
Not so good points:
1. His saw is a joke. (Does it sound like a muffler mod to anyone else?)
2. His chain doesn't appear to be sharp.
3. His helper doesn't have PPE.
4. It took him at least twice as long as most of us could have done it.
Really bad point:
Someone posted it online so it will never be forgotten.
