Land Clearing

Clearing Wooded Land with Anchor Chain and Bulldozer

I don't quite know what to make of this. I think the problem is that the narrator isn't showing any kind of bias. He's just explaining what's happening: 'here's a bulldozer, it's clearing land.' Seems like when I see any kind of video like this, the narrator is always selling something, like 'bulldozers bad, trees good', or 'look how efficient our mighty machines are, buy one now'.

In any case, I've never seen this particular technique before. I suppose if you want to get rid of all the trees that would be one way to do it. In any case you'd need to be clearing a large parcel of land to make hauling in the bulldozers a worthwhile expense. Not to mention the chain, though I suppose you might be able to pick up a scrap one. Hmm, wonder if there is a market for used anchor chains. All ships need to carry them, but if the ships are run efficiently they would never need to use those chains, so when it comes time to scrap them, the anchor chains might be something that can be pulled out and sold.
