Chainsaws and Safety Tips for Guyra
Proper maintenance is only one step in chainsaw safety, so we want to remind you of a few things when using your chainsaw. Before you start check the chain for sharpness and the correct tension and be sure the handles are secure. Top up the fuel and chain oil reservoirs and move away from the fuelling area and engage the chain brake before attempting to start your chainsaw. Always start it on the ground or other stable surface and never use the drop start method.
Inspect the tree to be cut for metal such as nails or old fencing because they can cause your saw to kick back toward you. Engage the chain brake or shut the machine off completely when carrying it along uneven ground. While cutting be careful, the branch doesn’t bind your chainsaw or is under tension which can cause it to snap back toward you.
Personal protective equipment should be worn when using your chainsaw such as hearing and eye protection. Leather outerwear provides extra protection from flying debris and kickback, and you want to avoid loose-fitting clothing. Boots with rugged tread prevents slipping, and they should have protective toe caps.
One of the most important safety measures is to have a plan if something goes wrong. Using a chainsaw with a partner not only gives you an extra pair of eyes and hands but also gives someone to call for help. When alone always have a cell phone and first aid kit close.
Chainsaws in Ashford
We would be happy to sharpen your chain for you but here are some tips you’ll need to complete the job yourself. First, you need to secure your chainsaw and engage the chain brake. Using a round file with dimensions specified by the manual, sharpen the cutting teeth by using smooth and even pushing strokes at a right angle. Cutting teeth alternate so you will sharpen every other one until you finished the length of the chain at which point you turn your saw around and do the other teeth.
