Did this video help you?

Jim Taylor: Watching a video and the guy brought this up. thanks for posting so i can see what happens!

Steve Crane: That's the most awesome (and potentially deadly) barber chair I've ever seen! Probably only 0.01% of chainsaws are sold are sold to professionals. The remaining 99% are sold to YouTube experts and 0.09% to self-professed novices. Thanks for sharing such a dramatic warning: it's not just the saw that can kill ya 7 ways, it's the tree too!

ThisIs MyName: That chainsaw swinging 0_0

ElveeKaye: Why is it called a barber chair?

fimbles101: So thats what a barber chair is :) thanks for sharing.

geore hermaphordyte: he should have used another tree to push it and if that wasn't an option then he should've started with a back cut if you want the tree to tip over in the other direction thats the way to go and don't forget to keep putting those wedges in!

Michael Hutin: Well done for hearing the crack, that happened to me once, threw me 6 to 8 feet backwards, luckily there was nothing behind me.

Steve Barney: Thank you for posting this.  And I'm glad you weren't hurt.

Jeff H: coooeee, that coulda turned real nasty!

scootrie8: everybody knows how to save the ship after its sunk

dubmatic: Glad it wasn't a fatality, after kickback, barber's chair accidents are the most common in forestry. I'd advise in future for forward leaners like this one to put in a Dog's tooth cut, where you bore through the middle first to release the tension, and cut downwards at 45 degrees for the final cut. At the end of the day, worse things happen at sea! Stay safe!

Dan Zeiss: This guy is a proper cowboy. Hes obviously used the wrong cut for a leaning tree and why the hell is he seen pushing the tree with his hand. Has this guy not heard of a felling lever! Made me laugh.

Jenna Homan: Thank you for posting.  You did title it "...gone wrong" so that should indicate to everyone that you know it went wrong.  Seems to me you posted it to show people how these things can happen quickly, so they can learn from it, and again, I thank you for that.  I have been looking at a few videos before I go cut down a tree in my front yard, because I just want to make sure I haven't overlooked anything, and I wanted to see what the barber chair looks like.  Because of your video, and some of the suggestions in the comments, I am starting to feel more confident.  Will certainly be more safety oriented. 

Tom Kay-Bradley: Thanks for sharing matey, I've learned from that

Quocalimar Anon: When you started running with the chain saw all I could think was Oh God, don't trip!

Daniella Kiewicz: i think he is like 6

satchell78: Right back to work like nothing happened. Thanks for sharing!

bill notice: You cut enough tree's these things will happen. Don t let fools get you down the video was educational.

John Hall: How many mistakes did he make, never heard of changing your cut to suit the situation. Very dangerous operator may not live long enough to gain experience... 

jago18777: I am a rookie myself I have not barbered quite as bad as this but i have had lean back and got my chainsaw outright stuck. 

There is probably a reason for why you didn't but could you not have used a dog tooth cut on this tree for a lean that size?
