Although chainsaws are excellent tools for Black Diamond Log Splitter,
the potential for accidents is high and severe injuries can result from
improper use. Chainsaw safety should always be your ﬁrst priority. By
taking the necessary safety precautions, you will avoid serious injury.
Take some time out before you use your new chainsaw to read the owner’s
manual. If you’re very familiar with your machine you’ll avoid any
hazardous techniques that might jeopardize your safety.
ﬁrst step in safety is to make sure you have selected a chainsaw that
is appropriate for you. Most chainsaws over 20” in length are not
appropriate for homeowner use and should be reserved for professional
woodcutters. You should be very comfortable with the weight of your
chainsaw so that you can easily raise it repeatedly above a log or tree
limb without tiring.
Chainsaw Safety Gear
Cnsuperpower Power Equipment - Log Splitter
Safety GearOperating a chainsaw requires signiﬁcant concentration and
effort. Make sure that you are well rested and alert. Before heading out
to the woodlot or wood pile, equip yourself with protective clothing
and safety gear, including hearing protection, safety goggles, a hard
hat, and gloves. Buy a quality pair of chainsaw chaps and wear them
whenever you are using the chainsaw. Don’t think of the chaps as
optional; they may save your life. If the saw blade hits your leg, the
ﬁbers of the protective pad within the chaps will be pulled into the
saw’s drive sprocket and cause the saw to jam before there’s a chance
that the chain hits a major artery. It goes without saying that your
shoes should be closed-toed and have good traction on them. Steel toes
are recommended. Avoid any loose-ﬁtting clothing or jewelry that might
get caught in the chainsaw’s rotating chain.
