    DON'T EVEN TRY IT!

    I appreciate your honesty, admitting someone got taken and that the price was way inflated. Silver Poplar, i do alot of them. IMO that was a 4k-6k tree.

    DON'T EVEN TRY IT!

    Someone bidding $6000 for the job doesnt mean it was worth 6k, they didnt get the job. Since when did $1500 for 2 hours of climbing , no big equipment become leaving money on the table? The HO said NO at 6k but yes at $1500 therefore there was no extra $4500 to be had. Where do you all get...

    Rico how do you feel about a $13500 removal. Making 9k for doing nothing but brokering the job.

    Sounds like the customer got taken. $9000 for setting up the job. How did you arrive at that? This sounds fishy, $13500 for a 4.5 hour job this doesnt add up.

    DON'T EVEN TRY IT!

    Fair enough, i prefer the notch because it feels more controlled and and removes pressure from the cut. I prefer slow.True the piece becomes vertical quicker which usually causes the snag to flip out sooner which usually doesnt matter. If that is a concern i will take other measures as you...

    Pictures dont lie. Legit. Reg seems to say there are too many videos being posted of mundane standard affair everyday tree work. Reg and Daniel are saying danger is relative. What may be dangerous to you may be ok for me, fine. Here is the difference i believe, there are times when you can...

    swing dutchman

    Swing swinging same difference. In Dent's diagrams it looks like he cuts a dutchmen in the notch everytime. If tapering a hinge with the backcut only as Daniel is saying constitutes a swinging dutchmen why is he calling it a tapered hinge in the photos. If this was the case everytime we cut a...

    So I reviewed your photos labelled tapered hinge, these seem to make my point. If not why arent they labelled swinging dutchmen?

    I am happy to continue the discussion. Here is my question. If you taper the hinge with your backcut but there is no dutchmen in the notch is that still a swinging dutchmen? In Pat's video he did taper the hinge, we agree, but had no dutchmen in the notch just a sizwheel. Wouldnt that be a...

    I disagree, thats not how I read it or understand it.

    DON'T EVEN TRY IT!

    The operative word here is prior. Meaning before the backcut. Can you please address what he means by prior then.

    DON'T EVEN TRY IT!

    Daniel please refer to the diagram i posted. Notice the swinging dutchmen and the backcut are seperate.
