Working safely with the chainsaw: working

Who wants to work with the chainsaw, should absolutely observe the safety rules - otherwise threaten serious injuries

The right protective clothing

Never work without safety clothing with the chainsaw. The basic equipment includes cut protection trousers, safety shoes, helmet with ear and face protection and sturdy gloves (preferably made of leather). Wear tight-fitting clothing and avoid scarfs that can get caught in the brushwood or caught by the saw. Beware of long hair! Tie them together or secure under the helmet.

Safety clothing protects against injuries

Make sure that no one is in the direct working environment and above all, there are no children nearby. However, somebody should always stay within the reach of a call - when working in the forest this is usually even mandatory.
Keep in mind that your perception of engine noise, hearing protection, and face protection is severely limited. Gasoline chainsaws emit toxic fumes, so always work outdoors and never in confined spaces.

Saw ground

Always start your saw on the ground

Always start your saw well secured on the ground and never freehand. This will prevent the saw from striking back uncontrolled when starting.

Chainsaw and accessories

Store chainsaws and accessories dry and dust-free

To ensure that the chainsaw starts up again even months later, proceed as follows: Before taking a long break, empty the fuel tank and empty the carburettor. Remove the chain and guide rail, clean them and spray them with protective oil. Store the saw so that children do not have access, such as in a lockable cabinet.
