Yikes! Just think of the torque and what would happen if the chain broke.

I don’t know what kind of scale they used to weigh that with ( 508 pounds ) these guys missed their calling if they can lift 254 pounds each plus control the torque of the engine…....or what type of stopwatch they timed it with ( 88 hundredths of a second ??? ) , but they’re both broken . Some ppl will believe anything.

Might work better just mounted to the front bumper of the truck. Then you wouldn’t even have to get out. Just do a drive by.

I can believe it, at college I used to parallel park my ‘86 Escort between two tree by pulling in the front, and lifting the back of the car enough to drag the rear into the spot. I’ve also moved 200+ lbs tube TV sets by myself as well.

254 lbs is a lot, but in short durations, very doable. And once the blade is engaged in the wood, you will notice the saw drawn very tight to the log.

BTW, did I mention I also have a trick muscle in my back, every year or two it will just lock up for a couple of days. And I am due for shoulder surgery this fall :-)
