My old boss used to stick the chainsaw in the notch and say the same thing...square the butt of the motor up to the face cut and the bar points to the falling direction. They never did teach me about the sights on a saw, never saw them use them...it was just a line on the saw to me.I saw a guy stick a double bit axe in a notch and say where it points is the direction of fall. I dont remember how acurate it was.
Agree,100 percent.I only use them on large trees,which in this area is 3 feet.gf beranek;195469 said:But all things considered they are a valuable tool. Especially when used to mark the corners in large trees.
