Abstract:
A safety tool for chain saw operators. It is a guide to basic chain saw operating techniques covering safety, maintenance and cross-cutting, but not tree felling. Detailed diagrams illustrate horizontal, vertical and boring cuts, as well as trimming and cross-cutting techniques. Safety considerations are discussed, including workplace safety, occupational hazards, kick-back and identifying dangerous trees. An explanation of the 'tension' and 'compression' forces in timber is also provided to help you understand where to begin cutting to avoid jamming the saw.

It covers chain saw maintenance in detail, explains all aspects of the equipment and helps you select the right chain saw and personal protection equipment for your needs. Trouble-shooting charts are included to help you solve operating problems.
