LoveStihlQuality: Where / who developed this procedure?

LoveStihlQuality: What or who is source of this technique?

LoveStihlQuality: Really? Keep it simple.

robert green: Where do you find 4 people in a real emergency?

mountfields: If your pal was under that with a serious injury and dying, a rope and a branch as a long lever or a straight lift would be so much quicker. it's surprising what you can lift in an emergency and the adrenaline kicks in........

Mike Dunning: Another guy NOT using safety gloves!!!

Jacques Blaque: @huskyjerk You had a really good question about the safety of DavidN23Skidoo's method of cutting those rectangular slots into the log, and if kickback would be involved. That sort of cut is known as a boring cut. To do it safely you first touch the spinning chain to the wood with the lower side of the tip of the bar, NOT the upper quadrant. As it enters the wood you pivot the engine end of the bar so the bar cuts straight in with the full tip.
Such a cut is difficult for the nose of the bar, and can be too much for some safety chains. Can be very safe to make, with study & practice & full normal precautions.

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

ScoutCrafter: Awesome!
