    Norway spruce hinge from yesterday.... She went 45 and stalled.... didn;t actually mean to cut it like that, interesting effect though, so it made for a free lesson

    Well this thread got intense quick... as long as we are on the subject of hinges... this technique seems as though it would take quite a while to set up but the accuracy of the fall looks quite precise.

    That's cool, Dalton - but why? Just to see how it works?

    The video says it's an old loggers trick to keep the tree on the stump while you pull, keeps it from lunging off in any direction... like I said it could be pointless labor but it was interesting to watch nonetheless lol.

    This one is for you Daniel, is this guy an Innovator or an Idiot? I am not sure... super crazy ideas people have sometimes...

    Not something I would be willing to try... most of my takedowns are very urbanized settings with many homes, walls, irrigation, etc. etc. To destroy... mostly piece-downs and rigging... but I love felling a fatty when I get a chance

    Yea, I don't see that catching on.

    I'd just cut lower and push that sapling over.

    Same thing I was thinking... but I wonder how it would work on a larger tree... I just stick to what I know works and occasionally try something new. All this stuff looks like it would take way too much time to set up. Rather just cut and push or something of that sort as you say.

    Looks like it would keep the log from rolling down the hill after it hits..
