    Yup. Or get proficient with a big shot and buy a Wraptor.

    You have some great buys there Brian. I know they'll make money for you. Maybe someday you might get a mini to slide into that dump trailer. ;) Good stuff.

    I thik we are i a softwood versus hardwood thing here. Tecniques that will work on softwood trees will not necessary work on hardwoods. They are a lot less forgiving.

    SerioustreesAZ, You lost me, sorry. I can't figure out what either of those scenarios mean. Can you try to explain in a way that non English speakers can understand. My mental picture of the last one would result in a busted log and a bound up saw, so I surmise you mean something else than what I'm picking up.

    Pretty much how I do it. Cut across top and back maybe a couple few inches in, pull bar back out but allowing tip to continue curf down front, bore back in 2/3 down the side and finish bottom, leaving enough wood up top and back to keep from binding. Back cut upwards to finish. Saw never left the wood. But, I guarantee you will pinch your saw as you are learning and misjudge how much wood to leave. Mind you, no side bind on the log helps.

    I think if a Polar bear ever made it to Louisiana, it would be too busy trying not to die from heat stroke to think of eating anybody.

    I don't start apprentices on mechanical stuff. Learn your ropes, so to say, then you can move on.

    You can easily see the physics in it, once it has been explained. Glad there was at least one person I didn't bore to death.:lol:

    I start apprentices up with the Distel, because it is so fool proof. After a year or so, I let them move on to a VT. The VT can trick you by not grabbibg, so you need to be used to climbing and tending knots before it is safe to use. In my opinion, anyway.

    Man. I didn't even think of that. My only excuse is that the only bears we have here, Polar bears, will never be found in areas where trees grow. So the risk of being eaten by one while bucking a log is nil. Polar bears see humans as a food source, unlike Grizzly bears which will normally only attack if scared or annoyed. Polar bears are bigger than Grizzly as well. So, Butch, if you want a bear to be afraid of, choose a polar bear.

    Only place you wedge a cut open is when you have to cut a log that is laying on something you don't want to get your chain into, like a road surface, Then you cut from above, set wedges, cut till maybe a couple of inches from the bottom, then pound the crap out of the wedges. This will make the log rise up , so you can cut through without damaging your chain. Sorry if I'm telling you something that is common knowledge to your all. I've no idea what people already know, so sometimes I'll just explain stuff at the risk of boring y'all.

    If you want to use wedges in a situation like that, Cut from above till the cut starts closing on your bar, maybe ream a bit if it happens too early ( Like with WAY more bind than he had) Set wedges, pound them in and simply finish your cut. The wedges will prevent the cut from pinching your bar, so you can just go straight through. I'll do that if I have an expensive veneer grade log in a bad bind. Easiest way to save the log. This is where the trick I learned from Chris comes in. Cut til it starts binding your bar, do a slightly slanted cut from the top into your first cut, use the bar to "pound" the triangular shaped piece that you just cut loose, into the first cut. It will nor serve as a wedge, so you simply ream under it, untill the log stops trying to bind your bar and power through. That is the best trick I've learned here in the House. It has made my life a lot easier when logging hardwood.

    Was like watching paint dry.. he should have cut in a better place so his leg and foot were clear of the log and buttress. Not enough side bind to worry about. Buck it like you mean it. Like what Stig said.. lack of experience shines through here.
