    No safety harness. Not even a tether on the chain saw. Unbelievable.

    You wouldn’t want to wrestle that bloke! Incredible strength in his arms and legs. The downside is I bet he gets paid peanuts or pesetas for his hard work.

      I was thinking the same thing.
      I’d hate to be the idiot who picked him for a fight.
      Tough as nails!

    Despite the obvious risk(s) and the chance of a fatal outcome etc. He still didn’t come close to killing 800+ people.

    Why are we stuck with Dickears?

      Interesting to note that he looked down and aimed before dropping any of the heavy leaves and the sections of the trunk all fell – or were dropped – into a neat pile. I’d say that fella is very careful doing his job.

    I am only a bloody dumb ex FNQ er but if yez wants to knock down a palm tree you sort of get whatever felling device of yer choice and yez sort of starts at the base ’cause it’s easier that way and saves all the climbing bit stuff.

      If it was me I would do it your way Botswana+O’Hooligan.
      there is absolutely no way I could do it otherwise.
      He sure has a lot of ability as well as bravery!! Geeezze!

    That was a job well done, very experienced. And he didn’t have any white collar pen pushers smothering him with regulations and improvement notices.

    He was not a danger to anyone else, and he worked well within his capability.
