OK, but how does any "man planted"/eco terrorist object become embedded and run vertically ? (Legit question, I have no pre-conceived ideas). If it was planted, wouldn't it run horizontal/perpendicular ?
It looks driven in at an angle to me. If have read any of the monkey wrencher stuff it is a common tactic to wreak havok on anyone unlucky enough to run a saw through it.

Ahhhhh, at an angle makes more sense. I have worked in the VFD/Motor Drive industry and many of our customers were either sawmill equipment OEM's, or the mills themselves.
They all have metal detectors on the infeed side of the mills, just for these kinds of situations. I just have never had any experience with that segment (metal detection) side of the business. I suppose that is due to the fact that the metal detection is very sophisticated and protects the mills, their equipment and their workers quite well.

    If it was rusting or oxidizing in some way wouldn't the trees 'internal liquid movement' (I'm pretty sure there is a better term but I can't think of it) move whatever crap it is vertical? Shouldn't go too far horizontal since aren't all the trees 'veins' vertical?

    Am not an arborist so can't answer that. Not sure if searching for images or info on eco-terrorist attack methods is wise but will likely show similar things to what was shown.

    maybe only a little, things were gypsy rocking on this beautiful truck driving up to dump. and then you lift the bed. everything worked out good home boys
    It's all fun until the frame snaps in two or you punch the scope out the top of the tower.
    Be careful

    Anyone run one of the 500i yet? Looks like a handy saw. Think I need one for the farm. Sounds like lighter than the 661 but plenty of power. Love the 661 but lighter might be good. Any experience here? (Current saws, 170, 261, 362, 441, 661 for reference)

    The snow has finally melted enough, I was able to run mine for the first time, last weekend. Bucked up my beetle killed pine in about 15 minutes. It's a ripper, for sure. I put a bark box muffler thing on it. I need to get it in more wood. Only one tank through it, so far.

    There’s about 12 cords of wood there.

    I love the Super Splitter went with the bigger Honda motor. It makes quick work of all but the gnarliest of wood.
    anything I can’t lift I cut in half or quarters with the 461 ( 32” bar & skip chain )and use the curls in the chicken coop.
