    Hard to see the guy in the background but I think he is worse than track suit guy. Checkout the nice barber chair at the end.

    Man that was scary to watch. Especially when he was bending over and wiggling his butt for the camera

    Yeah, I was scared I was going to see blood, guts, and/or an amputation during that. I might not know all there is to felling a tree. However, I sure know to treat the saw with a heck of a lot more respect than that and that the way he felled that tree isn't even close to right. Just WOW.

    I was actually wondering the same thing. It must be the coolness factor. Kind of like running a saw in your jogging suit. I was shocked not to see him jogging around the tree while cutting it. Just figured that would have been the next logical progression.

    I kinda think it must be the same kind of guy that does it to a motorcycle or old Honda civic with a 4 inch exhaust.

    In all fairness, some of those guys have clutches installed that mandate they drive it like that. But you can still tell the difference between the ones that have to and the ones that just do. ;lol

    At first, I thought I was going to see the limb knock him on his rear. Then, when he went one handed I thought I was going to see a decapitation. Glad it only ended up being the former and not the latter. People are just completely nuts.

    You watch enough you tube videos and you understand why there are so many chainsaw "accidents"

    Here is another good one. Just wondering who really parks their truck that close to a tree they are felling. I know I always keep mine way the heck away, along with any other gear I have there. WARNING: Think there is some bad language at the end.

    Good thing these guys did not have a chainsaw. One of them got knocked out of his shoes. Sadly, I laughed so hard for 5 minutes after watching it that my guts hurt now.

    This one is short and sweet, and scary as hell.....
    I've been up quite a few pines higher than this and when that top goes, it wobbles the pole pretty good.....
    Never had one do this though, the hinge appears to have been a little too thick, and that tree trunk a little too thin....
    Watch and you'll see something flying....not sure if it was his chainsaw or not but.......this had ugly written all over it!!

    my butthole still puckers tight shut when I see that vid......
    I was up in a 90' white pine at my SIL's house several years back, had to top off the crown and piece it down......
    Got up to the spot where I was gonna fold it over and MAN did it get windy.....I was spooked on that one.
    Had to make the wedge, and wait and wait and wait for the wind to calm down for a couple of minutes before I could make the back cut......everything went fine, but I think I stained my underwear thanks to that damm wind....
