Commander vs Tree

I went to cut down a dead tree in my yard yesterday. I put a notch in it about 25 feet up in the tree. I then tied a 130 foot rope 35 to 40 feet up and tied the other end to the front of my Commander (I have the Matrix). I kept waiting for the tree to snap at the notch but it never did. The whole tree fell roots and all! At least I don't have to grind down the stump!

I wish I took a video.

I was expecting to see a Commander wrapped around a tree. Glad that was not the case.

Opps! I should change the thread title. It does sound like I hit a tree or a tree hit me. How do you change the title? I don't see it under thread tools.
