cHain saw safety
• keep all parts of the body away from
the saw chain when the chain saw is
operating. Before you start the chain
saw, make sure the saw chain is not
contacting anything. A moment of
inattention while operating chain saws
may cause entanglement of your clothing
or body with the saw chain.

right hand on the rear handle and
your left hand on the front handle.
Holding the chain saw with a reversed
hand configuration increases the risk of
personal injury and should never be done.
• Hold the power tool by insulated
gripping surfaces only, because the
saw chain may contact hidden wiring.
Saw chains contacting a "live" wire may
make exposed metal parts of the power
tool "live" and could give the operator an
electric shock.
• Wear safety glasses and hearing
protection. further protective
equipment for head, hands, legs
and feet is recommended. Adequate
protective clothing will reduce personal
injury by flying debris or accidental
contact with the saw chain.

Operation of a chain saw while up in a
tree may result in personal injury.
• Always keep proper footing and
operate the chain saw only when
standing on fixed, secure and level
surface. Slippery or unstable surfaces
such as ladders may cause a loss of
balance or control of the chain saw.

tension be alert for spring back. When
the tension in the wood fibers is released
the spring loaded limb may strike the
operator and/or throw the chain saw out
