Clint,

You are one fine dude with a chainsaw.  I would love to spend a day with you for learning.  That cut would scare me to death, though.

I will never try that of course, but what is the purpose of this cut?

Not at all what I expected.  It didn't look like you were cutting all that deep.  You sure make it look easy!

Haha!  Either you guys don't have the same things in the woods there or you are super tough.  Up here there are so many things that will  bite or sting you, poke you or stick you.  On some jobs the buckthorn is so bad my arms look like I made a hundred razor blades cuts on em at the end of the day and they burn like crazy at night.  I can't imagine that all over my body.

Ccc4, nicely done sir. Care to elaborate on the physics of this style cut? How does tree not sit on bar, how do you make sure it goes where you want it to go etc.

I can sympathize. I'm usually scarred for a while after doing battle in my "buckthorn plantation". Add the mosquitos, black flies, deer flies, and ticks, and I keep a shirt on. With all the disease the ticks carry (seems like they're finding a new one every year or two), I've been wearing permethrin treated shirts. They've been working well. I may look into treated socks as well.

that's how I cut trees here with no tops in em to pull them down. works great but get the heck away when it goes down cause the log/tree can slide back of the stump! ;)

What he done was more less a swing cut. Just in a different method. The tree was constantly sitting slowly more and more on the kerf. It is possible for the tree to sit quick and pinch the saw, but after allot of practice it doesn't happen much. As far as placement it is more confidence of reading the tree and knowing I can cut it this way and put it there. It is one of many techniques that come in handy in a production setting. Long bars have they're place, but not always needed

In the production setting here its pretty common to just run one size bar and chain. That way all saws, bars, chains, etc are standard and interchangable. I run 25in , I have a 36in setup only use couple times a year. But yes, good job putting wood on the deck. And yes, takes a few pinches to figure it out. And I would say ccc4 got it figured out.. ;D

I like to run 25" myself anything much more is just bulky and doesn't serve my purposes well. Keep 32" around just in case. I'm not a production logger either. I don't plan on attempting this style cut but I like to learn as much as I can anytime possible. Because I do not have the knowledge and experience needed to safely pull this off I wouldn't even attempt it. I kinda figured mostly had to do with reading the tree and understanding the geometry and physics of it all. Which is something I enjoy doing, but it seems trees are always either trying to prove me wrong or teach me more lol maybe when it seems that changes I can venture into more radical cuts. I'm still working on bore cutting right now, haven't had much chance to try it out but very eager to.

   You guys know why Sthil calls their bar a 25" bar while everyone else calls it a 24"? I bought one with my 441 last year. We are talking about 84 link, .50 Gage, 72 loops right?

   I have a 20" on my old 440 and I like the 24" (25"?) when felling large (for me - toothpicks for some of you guys) trees.
