The Lorax Lines 138-149 Summary

Super-Axe Hacker

  • The demand for Thneeds is heavy, and the Once-lers can't chop fast enough to meet it. This is where the "Super-Axe-Hacker" (144) comes into play. 
  • Invented by the Once-ler, this purple smoke-belching, axe-slinging machine can take out four Truffula trees with one whack. 
  • And where is the Lorax during all of this? The Once-ler doesn't know or care. He's just glad the bossy little guy isn't bugging him anymore.
