Keep all parts of the body away from the saw chain
when the chainsaw is operating. Before you start
the chainsaw, make sure the saw chain is not
contacting anything. A moment of inattention while
operating chainsaws may cause entanglement of your
clothing or body with the saw chain.
Always hold the chainsaw with your right hand
on the rear handle and your left hand on the front
handle. Holding the chainsaw with a reversed hand

contact with the saw chain.
Do not operate a chainsaw in a tree. Operation of
a chainsaw while up in a tree may result in personal
injury.
Always keep proper footing and operate the
chainsaw only when standing on fixed, secure and
level surface. Slippery or unstable surfaces such as
ladders may cause a loss of balance or control of the

INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING THE PROPER TECHNIQUES FOR BASIC FELLING, LIMBING, AND CROSSCUTTING
Understanding the forces within the wood

of the log. When “cutting through”, to maintain complete
control release the cutting pressure near the end of the
cut without relaxing your grip on the chainsaw handles.
Don’t let the chain contact the ground. After completing the
cut, wait for the saw chain to stop before you move the
chainsaw. Always stop the motor before moving from tree
to tree.
Limbing a tree
See page 20.
Limbing is removing the branches from a fallen tree. When
limbing leave larger lower limbs to support the log off the
ground. Remove the small limbs in one cut. Branches
under tension should be cut from the bottom up to avoid
binding the chainsaw.
Cutting springpoles
See page 20.
A springpole is any log, branch, rooted stump, or sapling
which is bent under tension by other wood so that it springs
