A Successful Method of Power Felling
Abstract:The possibility of lightening the manual labor of felling trees through the use of machinery has spurred many European and American inventors to devise practical equipment. It has remained, however, for the workmen themselves to develop a machine from a standard drag saw and have it adopted to the exclusion of the hand cross-cut saw in the country's largest timber. In discussing the conditions which led to the development, the author suggests the possible reasons why earlier machines failed of general application in smaller timber.
