Very wise advice there. Same goes for anything with cutting blades that uses petrol or electricity such as hedge-trimmers, shredders, power drills etc and, if you have to use anything that has a toxic element, please read the advice on the label. If anyone thinks it makes them more of a man by ignoring all the caveats then I suggest they don't decide to shin up a big tree to cut the overhanging branches off unless they want to sing a la castrato.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

Sound advice. I wouldn't dare use mine without my chainsaw pants, regardless of how hot they are or how little cutting I was going to do. They're scary beasts but sometimes the best tool for the job. Stay safe folks :)

Good sound advice. Although cutting logs looks an easy job ,there is a lot to think about,regarding what the tip of the bar is coming into contact with. I always dress for the occasion.

I've used chainsaws for many years and I always say you must treat them with respect there a good tool for doing the job there intended to do and not abused

keep the chain sharp keep it topped up with chain oil and always think safety first as apriority not just for the one that's using it but those around you when your using it

I shall never forget being shown a pair of post-accident chainsaw trousers, which had done the job they were intended for.  You could see that the padding had been chewed up a bit, but it had stopped the chainsaw; and the person underneath - who was a professional - was not injured.

If that can happen to someone who knows what they're doing, it can happen to anyone.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...
