    Default Chainsaw Hell

    The parts where he cuts the roots. Oh, my God!

    Then he says, "I'm going to make video about sharpening chain." Skip through it. It's funny and frightening.

    He was using chain though to pull the stump.

    Wow. All that work. 2 minutes with a stump grinder would have taken care of it. Must have had plenty of time and energy. Usually a video of someone pulling a stump with a chain doesn't end well.

    Better chain to pull a stump than rope!

    Now the chain to cut the roots... after that it wouldn't be worthy enough to sharpen.

    Usually they leave a bumper behind. At least he has a tractor. Yeah that chain will be about done.

    What did that poor Home Depot saw do to deserve that? Yeah, it was painful watching him ream through roots that a well-sharpened beater axe could have severed in two swipes. Funny though... I gotta say that that saw actually SOUNDED pretty good.

    Okay a rook for sure , Saw and Chain are eventual throwaways ... My two is w those soil conditions plus a frickin tractor I would have just kept digging. Then the axe. Where I live digging is squeak more difficult.

    Painful to watch but by far not the worst video of tree work I've seen from the public.
