Thanks for sharing. Hope the sawyer is alright. A tip to consider looking at the re-enactment photos would be to slide the grip hand on the wrap handle roughly 180 so that the bulk of the saw's powerhead is facing up [rather than close to the ground - basically you're flipping the powerhead] and approach the cut with the top of the bar. If an accidental strike with given log were to happen, the kick would be away from the sawyer. (The swamper should be good and clear of the work area!) Make sense? Be safe out there!
