Sunday Funnies? Chainsaw Safety

So what is this guy doing wrong?  His stance has Darwin Awards written all over it.  May not kill him, but will definitely take him out of the gene pool.

chainsaw-safetyAs a chainsaw owner who has a nifty chainsaw scar below my left knee, I have come to appreciate the importance chainsaw safety and proper usage.

  • Keep the chain sharp.  In fact have several spare chains so you can switch out when they become dull.  Should cut like butter.  If you are forcing the saw through the cut, your chain is dull.
  • Gloves
  • Ballistic nylon chainsaw chaps
  • Safety glasses or goggles
  • Maybe a helmet with a face mask

Be safe out there.
