LIMBING AND PRUNING
Ka, WARNIN(5:
Be alert for and guard
against kickback.
Do not allow the moving
chain to contact any other branches or ob-
jects at the nose of the guide bar when limb-
ing or pruning. Allowing such contact can re-
sult in serious injury.
4[_WARNING:
Never climb into a tree
to limb or prune.
Do not stand on ladders,
platforms, a log, or in any position which can
cause you to lose your balance or control of
the saw.
IMPORTANT
POINTS
• Work slowly, keeping both hands firmly
gripped on the saw. Maintain secure foot-
ing and balance.

size limbs.
Slender material may catch the saw chain
and be whipped toward you or pull you off
balance.
• Be alert for springback.
Watch out for
branches that are bent or under pressure.
Avoid being struck by the branch or the
saw when the tension in the wood fibers is
released.

area. Frequentlyclear
branches out of the way to avoid tripping
over them.

the
felled tree to support the tree as you work.
• Start at base of the felled tree and work to-
ward the top, cutting branches and limbs.
Remove small limbs with one cut.
• Keep the tree between you and the chain.
Cut from the side of the tree opposite the
branch you are cutting.
• Remove larger, supporting branches with

freely hanging limbs.
Undercutting could
cause limbs to fall and pinch saw.
