Tips and Tricks
- There are 2 options when it comes to chainsaws. Electric chainsaws are great for doing jobs at home where a power source is readily available. A petrol chainsaw is perfect if you’re going to be in a more remote location.
- When buying a chainsaw check for ease of use. The lighter the chainsaw the easier it will be for you to maneuver and control.
- Always wear the correct safety equipment when operating a chainsaw: gloves, eye protection, earmuffs and enclosed shoes (preferably steel caps).
- A safety chain brake is a must. This engages if the chainsaw suddenly kicks back and will stop the chain from running and causing serious injury.
