used a micro digger (700 kg ) to guide an akward tree one time , we were
sweating when the tree started to move hopeing it would go the right way
,but a few cuts in the right place a little luck and a little digger and
all was well

who taught you to fall a tree son!

Author FRUNTCASTER (3 years)
Chris, I won't go through all the things that went wrong, or bad technique.
. . I will help you with your saw though. Your saw is waaay too lean. Your
idle is off too. Lighly seat the L & H needle, then back them both out 1
full turn to start. That gives you a starting point. With the saw idling,
slowly back out the L needle until the saw wants to die, and go back in 1/4
turn. On the H needle, rev the saw wide open throttle, and slowly back it
out until their is a pronounced "burble".

You are a very good excavator operator, no questions. But the way you
handle the chainsaw scares me. Chain seems to be dull bye the way.

it out its simple tree falling and no one wants to see most of the comments

@gangesexcavating dull saw and too many people with oppinions is never a
good thing lol. But it all went well in the end. I might try to get a had

Author triden55 (3 years)
Put your face cut in 1/3 of the diameter. Use your sights to aim it. Then
cut your wedge. Now put in the back cut. If you're using a machine you can
do a "snap" cut and have the excavator land the tree.

Author sisutrucks (3 years)
well it sure as hell is dead now;-)

Author FRUNTCASTER (3 years)
Cont. . . Then go back in 1/4 turn. Now you need to put the saw into some
wood, but with a nice sharp chain. The saw should "clean up" in the cut,
and burble outside of the cut. If the saw still burbles under load
(cutting), stop, and turn the needle in 1/8 turn, and cut again. Adjust in
this way until the saw cleans up in the cut, but burbles unloaded. If
nothing is done, you'll ruin the saw.

Why are people dissing 'Letsdig18' when it was the other fella who didn't
take the back-cut deep enough though the heartwood and left it hanging up
requiring a pushover! Kickback waiting to happen when tubby went back to
it. 'Too many chiefs' from what I saw, they shudda left him too it. No one
got hurt so no harm done.

Author TheFrameoff (1 year)
cut a notch out of the tree then a back cut and it will fall where you want
it too, not a straight cut right through...... danger.
