I've been looking at extendable hedge trimmers as I have arborvitae bushes that are getting tall & out of my reach standing on a step ladder & ran across this priceless video . Maybe some have seen this ?

And also, I told my wife about this guy and she said, "Why didn't he simply use the chain saw to cut the hedge. He'd have a cleaner looking hedge and it would hardly take more time. He must have been having one of those 'watch this!' moments."

I can EASILY imagine that going horribly wrong.


It's already horrible that he's lived long enough to pass his genes on to another generation of morons.

He's just doing it to make money by hoping to go viral, thus generating millions of clicks and the corresponding advertising revenue.

Just google: "how to make money on youtube".

Let's hope he doesn't need that money to pay his medical bills.

Michael, your wife was right, but she left out the "hold my beer" part.

He calls himself the "world's strongest redneck". More like the world's biggest *n*l c*vity. Or at least a finalist in the contest.

If he decapitated himself he wouldn't be any dumber.

(But, then, here we are all talking about him.)

I watched it and it looked like the chain saw did no damage whatsoever to the hedge; therefore, in my opinion, he wasn't in any danger, as he had taken the chain off the chain saw and was doing the video for show. Just my take on what was actually portrayed. I could be wrong, but didn't see any limbs, branches, leaves, etc., being cut off.

This is far from the dumbest thing anyone has done to try to earn money on YouTube.

Just look at this:

At least these people are improving the average intelligence of humanity by removing themselves from the gene pool.

Watch again Sherry, there are definitely limbs and debris flying each time he swings the saw.

I suspect that there is no warning label on the chain saw, or in the owners manual saying not to do this so if he were injured he would likely try to sue.  This is why ladders are one of the most expensive, compared to manufacturing cost, items you can buy and why there are so many labels on them.  One idiot put the base of a ladder on a frozen manure pile and when the pile thawed the ladder slipped and the guy fell - sued the ladder company because they failed to warn him not to do that.  Not sure the result, but it didn't stop the suit. 

I suspect this guys last words will be "Hey everybody, watch this!"

For some reason I was thinking that the rope was going to wrap around his neck then the saw would but his head of with lots of spurting blood. Guess it show you how dumb some people can be.

I watched it a couple of times.  If there had really been a chain on that thing, it would have cut through the hedge more than just a few little twigs and branches falling.  I still think it was a hoax.  My take and I'm sticking with it (G)

It's on a rope so it can't be stabilized perpendicular to the bush (it's at an angle almost all of the time), therefore can't make a clean cut, or even much of a cut at all, most of the time. It's quite inefficient. He'd do much better to just hold it by the handle. So he loses two ways: 1) It's just a dumb, dangerous stunt, and 2) it really doesn't work well at all.

I have a tall hedge, about 7 or 8 feet high. I use a regular hedge trimmer for the lower part. But there are extendable hedge trimmers that can be used to trim the higher parts. If that guy could not find one, he wasn't looking. Maybe he can slip and have the chain saw "sail" through the living room window. Then his spouse will evaluate his intelligence and comment on it.

I am surprised something like Youtube would even include a video like that. There are lots of opportunities for injury/damage. Actually there are lots of videos that aren't worthy of being shown. I wouldn't be surprised to see an instructional on how to hold a toothbrush. Wait - don't tell me, there is probably one out there already.

"But you must hold the toothbrush at a 45 degree angle."

Now I'm confused!!  Why does one need 30 sec./quadrant with an electric brush? If it oscillates/reciprocates at 10X the speed of a manual one [just to pick a number for illustration], wouldn't one only need 1/10th. the time [i.e.3 seconds/quadrant] for the amount of cleaning/brushing to be equal?   Don't tell me my logic/math, and consequently my brushing,  has been screwy for the past 50 years!!  crying
