Mark Schneider: Very nice, the technique can be modified when you just need to move a log and you don't have a peavy or cant hook.
cloud hopper: 4 gents with a cpl. ropes would be much quicker. Chainsaw Overkill...and too much time...
ubb4me: This has very limited applications. You need 4 men to lift the log. The log has to be small enough to be lifted which means you need to cut dangerously close to the pinned person hoping the chainsaw doesnt kick back during the plunge cuts. Sawdust, oil, dirt getting into open wounds. Clever but not very useful.
Dave yep: If i was under that,damn tree!just cut a load of wedges into the top,removing a lot of wood!until it is light enough to move!its given me,a idea! cut a square into a log,pass the chain through!easier to drag!clever!
buellfuel2001: Why not make a wedge cut on both ends and lift the log off? why the holes?
PainAndMurphyJo: sometimes there might be this time in a life where THIS is the ONLY thing that you can do until a well equipped rescue team arrives.... so why bash.. can we look at the positive?
Tony Carothers: waste of time when you can just lift the damn log anyway....
BernFya: This only seems effective IN THEORY. Entirely too much sawdust sprayed all over the victim AND any wounds. I'm pretty sure it would be damn hard to remain calm (your best option in a traumatic injury) if still conscious. In the real situation the benefit of speed would outweigh other risks that this method attempts to avoid.
Siuco: I thought all that cutting he was making a chair!
ajbrodowsky: as soon as i healed i would whoop the crap out of the brainiac that didnt want to make one cut. then have a few beers laugh then whoop him again.
Brian Robison: yeah and after 10 minutes of all these cuts, the victims health is worsening when you could have just cut the section off and be done in less than 1 minute lol
bored336: if u had multiple saws it wouldnt take to long
louis12346: cool coat rack ?
oktreedude: Good video and technique,BUT could not rope be used with the poles and instead of so much time cutting holes, you could put the rope under the log on each end and the same four guys could have it moved in 10 mins. quicker. If you are going to do so much cutting, why not cut out an Aframe? It is a good technique to know, but rope is your friend.
hallagon: Thank you for posting this video

Mike Pepler: Nice technique. I was wondering if you were going to use the poles as levers to lift the log off - I guess you might need to if there weren't four people to lift them...
Reid107: @sneakyabcd Agreed, but if the log has been on them for any length of time, you friggen well better be ready for them to crash once it comes off. It may be inevitable, but it can be fixed.
goldmaz23: @DavidN23Skidoo so cut for 5 mins when 5mins can mean the life or death block up both ends cut and then lift it off you only have to lift one end as another person pull the person clear
