Wow. I'm glad I never knew that and I don't cut blocks out of the end either. I even cut a 24" log last winter with my brand new little Stihl 170 with a 16" bar. Did it just to see how it did and it did fine but most I did with the 290....and it has a 16" bar. Used that same 290 on that 31" ash we cut last winter too. Shoot, I've been doing it this way for years.
The belief that a bar has to be as long or longer than the diameter of the log is not true at all.
I guess you missed my post 2 after that. I had a brain fart and lost ability to do math. I dontthink you can only cut wood the size of a bar. I have cut 40+" oak before with a 20" bar.
Cut into logs,buck to length, roll with cant hook to finish bottom , roll into trailer, or use dolly
Looks like you could have used a crane mounted magnet on that log.
HD that's a hernia waiting to happen. Split now or later, get the splitter.
Clem, maybe a brain fart again. More than 40 inch round with a 20 inch bar is going to be hard to do. Sorry, I couldn't stop my self.
Nope there was like 3 inches of wood in the center that I broke with either a maul in the cut or a pry bar I don't remember. But true I did not actually cut through it.
Yup, and I can cut a 32" diameter tree with a 16" bar. Actually did a 34" one time. Just like Clemson though, some was hanging on in the middle but it did not pose a problem.
Yep those were a beotch getting in there others got the sledge n wedge
