Felling trees greater than twice the guide bar length When felling larger trees you need to follow a slightly different felling technique. Make a bore in the middle of the directional notch. Apr 27, If you dont need the winch and wedges will do thats fine but very hard to get a rope into a tree after the back cut has been made.
take your time set the scarf up nice and level. bigger bar would be great but if no go then a bore cut as shown above will work bushnotch.bar a good set of wedges,but you have stated the tree has a good lean. eucs are a curse in a breeze,(barberchair city!!!) early am best for bushnotch.bar trees. Oct 01, If you find yourself on a % slope (45 degree) in larger timber the only alternative to a long bar is springboards. Or if when dealing with hazard trees that you cannot cut from one side the alternative is saying no.
A chainsaw with a 10 – 14 – inch bar is capable of felling a large tree (preferably under 20 inches in diameter) or blocking up firewood.
But if the diameter is higher than the guide bar length by a wide margin, a saw with a less powerful engine will be of little use to you. Time is of the essence here. Apr 13, The largest was an American Elm with a 50" base. I used my Husky XP with a 28" bar. (upper bar limit for the saw)She dropped right where I wanted.
I like to think that it was because of great felling skills but I know some luck was involved. I then bucked 8 1/2' sections with the same saw. Ended up with 8 logs all measuring 8' 6". Nov 11, The breaking bar is available in different handle lengths providing you with varying amounts of felling force.
Avoid breaking bars with a long handle for really thick trees and large backward leans, as this may require a lifting height that is greater than you can handle. Maximum lifting height: approximately 2 bushnotch.barted Reading Time: 5 mins.
