    What those shows SHOULD be called:

    Axe Men - Logs on ropes
    American Logger - Logs on trucks
    Swamp Loggers - Logs in mud
    Extreme Logging - Logs being chipped

    ;)

    High-lead logging IS logging.

    Everything else is lumberjacking, as in, you're a lumberjack and that's OK.

    I got a kick out of the commercal for the Axe men.......a guy jumps into a river with a running chain saw, saw comes up out of the water running and he starts cutting a log that fell across the river......I wonder if a chain saw that runs under water is a specail option

    I thought season 1 of Axe Men gave viewers a real good perspective of the industry. After that it became palefaces behaving stupidly ...unfortunately I don't do propaganda.

    I do watch it but have never been able to finish a season, last year I wanted to strangle the guy who yelled at his son in every episode.

    the guys at work asked if I watch it. I said why should I watch it, I live it. We work in a kitchen and they watch cooking shows?? They also told me that echo was the best cause the axmen use them, now I know why my echo blew up I wasn't running it underwater. .

    I work in a kitchen as well and have gone to culinary school but I still watch cooking shows. What are you trying to say? That if you do it you have nothing else to learn? I think I have only seen 1 Echo on that show a few huskys, Solos, but this year I have noticed mostly Stihls.

    Not by any means. When I'm home relaxing I don't want to be reminded of work or even think about it, as you know the work is stressful enough. I haven't seen the show so my echo reference is from what the guys told me. I've seen a part of one of those shows and it seemed like man-soaps, not for me.

    Discovery Channel has their agenda. Their shows are full of half truths and staged scenes. They make the Simpsons look real.
