Some tips for working safely with Chainsaws

By tensioning the chain correctly on the chainsaw, so there is no slack, there is reduced chance of the chain breaking & coming back and injuring the user.

When cutting low down bend or kneel so that you are still have the saw horizontal to the ground, if the saw kicks back this will allow your hand to engage the safety brake. If you were standing up leaning over the saw it can kick back into your forehead leaving you with a scar that people would know it was you coming. A chainsaw is a great tool as long as adequate care is taken when using it.
