Joe the Logger said:You won't find one ! I do a " West Coast" notch on a tree that big. In this case we have a valueable buttlog and thats it. An "East Coast" notch would waste 8" of the buttlog. In a tree that size I make three cuts, a left, a right, and a back. when I'm on my game, they come together perfectly. Thats what the black line on the clutch cover of a pro saw is for. It keeps you in perfect alignmnent if you do your part. In this case, the tree had a 90 degree first limb that was 20" thick and probably weighed 1000 lbs. , so the tree was only going one way no matter what. Its easy to pull or ruin the buttlog on a huge tree if you don't know what to do. Theres alot more to a lumberjack than an extra large shirt and a small hat, LOL!
That is a quote of the year there...LOL..I am just a TSI/habitat cutter and would never mess with a tree that size, heck my heart gets to pounding hard when i drop something approaching 10" ...LOLJoe the Logger said:Theres alot more to a lumberjack than an extra large shirt and a small hat, LOL!
