    Irresponsible tv shows, or Nice Cuttin...

    This was on diy Network's "Cool Tools". This seems irresponsible to me for them to portray and show chainsaw use like this.

    Did this guy just use this chain saw with the blade like that?



    I didn't get a video of this one, but this guy didn't actually do the cut, but they made it look like he did and they made it look like he did it with the blade like that.

    I'm not sure this is an appropriate way to straighten your saw bar.

    Very dangerous way to cut down a tree... you have no control of where it will go. Lucky it didn't come back on him.

    That video was a recipe for disaster! No notch. Hard to believe that when the cut was finalized, the way the tree slid across the stump (and saw bar) that it actually feel toward where he wanted.

    Wow scary! I know that none of us are perfect, but it seems if you were making something to televise or to be used to instruct, it would be checked over and over again to make it as close to perfect as possible. Those are way off. Sad.

    Seems some producer, director, production crew and the user has NO clue how to use , setup the chain saw or how to fell a tree the correct way. Now some rural homeowner is going to get injured or killed. Just because of watching this miss information.

    The guy was lucky. He's either a NUT, or he knew exactly what he was doing.
