So I own this chainsaw, along with 2 electric chainsaws and an electric pole saw. First thing I'd say is ALL saws have the potential to be deadly. If you don't treat an electric one with respect you'll end up with a life changing/ending injury, in a similar way to the way you would to a petrol driven one. The biggest danger in all of this is yourself. If you don't have your thinking hat on when you handle the saw or become too complacent or careless, that's when mistakes can and will happen. Mindset is everything. Having your head switched on will save you far better than any comforting feeling you might get from using a less powerful saw or wrapping yourself up in copious amounts of PPE thinking you're invincible. That said, I do think this is a cut above the electric saws (if you'll pardon the pun), you really should use some basic PPE - decent gloves & goggles at an absolute minimum. As for the saw itself, this thing is weighty. Far heavier than the electric ones. It's also noisy, smelly, smokey and not something I'd use to do some light chopping up of logs on a pleasant Sunday afternoon. It takes about 20 minutes for me to get suited and booted, get this thing out, fill it up with petrol/oil/oil, give the chain a once-over and start it up. You need a purpose to get this out (think cutting down actual trees - and big logs). The electric ones are easier, quicker to set up and use, quieter and cleaner - but they will kill just as easily in the wrong hands. Don't be fooled.
Yup, nothing safer than a 150ft extension cable across the damp grass in the morning :) , my petrol is far superior to my electric chainsaw and only marginally more expensive, typically petrol ones last too, electric ones made in China dont have a great track record, thats over the last 30 years.
Why would a zombie need a chainsaw? Aren't they scary enough already? (zombie)
