I wonder,since it's a Stihl,them first 2 bars just snapped off the power head when they started to pinch? And then he only opened it up 1/4 throttle on the last cut & pinched it?

Humph! >:( Nobody's addressing Barge's little dig to us Stihl guys.

I bet I could have screwed up with just as good with a Husky.  ;D ;D

I don't know... not sure that I could have even done that.  :D
 Im embarrassed to admit I own 1 Stihl but it was FREE and left at my sawmill door like an orphan, 6 chains included all used 1x with a busted recoil cord in a handy carry case. 🤣  We did a job yrs ago for this Korean camp, they would buy 4-6x new Poulans at home depot on the way up from NYC and they would be toast by Sunday night, I think the pile of saws still lays there, had to be 50+ of them.

It was probably tossed out like Larry Moe and Curly at the orphanage in the movie. I don't know whats going on in that picture, but think about it, the more cuts you make above the main cut is gonna make the tree lean back more unless you follow up correctly with wedges. Another thing, how can a wedge not work unless like someone else said, rotten wood?

Once or twice ive tried to change lean with wedges and just couldnt.  It was like hammering on a steel beam, nothing budged.  

I really wish this guy was here to tell the story.  Theres a good lesson to be learned in it.  Ill bet he got it down safely.

Cut my pinched Echo cs600p out of a Hemlock with my smaller saw.
In too much of a hurry to take the power head off.
Nicked a hole in the gas tank.
7 years and 2 applications of JB quickweld later the Echo is still happy, but I aint.

Pretty good slicing there!  Interesting felling style ::)  Not bad, he got two trees for the price of one - wonder if he was trying for that.
