Nasty bloody things, best left to people who know what they are doing!

The law on joe bloggs buying & using these makes me mad. I am certified in the use of a chainsaw & if you have never used one before, its a dangerous tool. If you dont know how to use one correctly it can kickback & flip up into your head.

I have a chainsaw and it's the one tool I own that unnerves me to use.

I know how to use it because I bothered to find out unlike my idiot neighbour who I once recall seeing up a ladder, chainsaw at arms length, in line with his head, chopping the top out of a tree.

I have only ever used mine standing on the ground to cut logs, properly supported, with the bar out of line of my body in case of kickback. I very rarely use it now though because I bought a Hitachi saw similar to this tooled-up.com/Pro…771. OK it can't manage very large logs and is slower than a chainsaw but it's a damn sight safer and less stressful to use. It can also be used in lot's of situations where a chainsaw can't. I would very much recommend getting one or a cheaper version rather than a cheap chainsaw.

On a related note I once saw posted a breakdown of statistics relating to serious accidents involving chainsaws. More deaths and serious injuries were due to trees and boughs falling onto people than contact with chain. So whatever tool you use you need to be careful.

even i know without checking anywhere that you shouldnt use a chainsaw at arms length.....you are not in complete control and these things should be respected

Coz what could go wrong buying a cheap chainsaw???

Spot on Royals!

I moved to somewhere with a lot of trees but did training and took plenty of advice before picking one up. Even now I am quite proficient I still treat it with extreme respect and if the job can be done with a bowsaw in a reasonable time I use that before I get the chainsaw.

The only thing that's worse than a normal chainsaw is a cheap chainsaw. Slack chains, badly sharpened, in the hands of a novice are the stuff of opening scenes of Casualty.

If you buy one of these please be careful.

got an electric one for a couple of small tree / bushes that
seemed to be made of rubber (axe just bounced off them)
anyway , was crapping myself using the electric one.

Correct.Thats just the start. Theres more to it than people may think.

Well if your sensible they are ok, take all precautions and only use it cutting logs on stable supports etc. But some people are utterly clueless, and just wave them about like a hedge trimmer. And most muppets never oil them, my auntie used one and when I asked did you make sure to oil it she said she just put some oil on the chain!.

hmm, i was thinking about using one to trim some trees, but i think i'll stick to my hedge trimmer and telescopic cutters now

You only have to watch the Texas Chainsaw Massacre to know that this is a bad deal...
