That’s a really good idea. Thanks!
This isnt specialized, its literally just a car jack
When did a bottle jack become a specialised tool?
Yup that is a plaint old bottle jack.
OP wins Title of The Day award
How much lumber would a lumberjack jack if a lumberjack could jack lumber?
That shaft tho
Is this allowed? It seems unsporting.
I love how calmly he just grabs his things and walks away
It’s a jack.
Making videos of tree falls without the sound should be punishable by death. It the most satisfying THWOMP you’ll ever hear.
This also wasn’t a very good cut, that kickback is very dangerous.
That’s some dense looking wood.
He’s a lumberjack and he’s ok.
Took isn’t even intended for that task.
*Why does he take the time to remove the j… Ooh OK.*
I had to pause and check the sub. I was sure I was about to watch someone die.
It’s just a bottle jack, not specialized
I really wanna hear the cracking and thump!!
I looked away for 2 seconds 👀
Is the lumberjack the specialized tool?
So that’s why they’re called lumber jacks.
Cool guys don’t watch the tree fall down…
That’s called a bottle jack and it is in no way a specialized tool
He jacked off his wood.
Well, this sub was good while it lasted…
I’m always surprised when small devices like these can do something so mindblowing crazy; that tree weighs a gazillion ton and that lil’ 5kg metal thingy can lift it up enough for it to tip in the correct direction. Engineering F T W.
I see what you did there
OP YOU ARE THE TOOL
Various things can go wrong using an ordinary bottle jack like this. The jack can punch into the log above as the load is not spread enough, the jack can fail due to overloading or side loading. Dedicated jacks to do the job are very expensive and have special valves which I think cannot burst. I heard that a bloke in Hobart Tasmania got struck by a bit of metal from a jack doing this. I’m an Arborist.
Multi tool, not specialized tool.
I bet that smells amazing.
It didn’t make a sound!
This is very dangerous, easy for the jack or the plates that are used to fly out and take your face off. You also need quite a heavy duty bottle jack.
That’s what wedges and a sledge hammer are for
gives a whole new meaning to the word(s) lumberjack
