    How to Work With a Chainsaw

    Want to know how to cut wood quickly and safely? One of the best ways to turn a tree into firewood or clean up after a storm is to use a chainsaw. A chain saw is a power tool that looks just like it sounds: it is a saw on a chain which rotates around a bar at a high rate of speed, allowing the user of the chain saw to fell trees and cut limbs faster than using a hand saw or axe. As with any power tool, take caution when operating a chainsaw. Speed is not the ultimate factor, and safety should never be compromised when using a chainsaw, no matter how much time you think you can save.

    Before operating your chainsaw, check your local regulations to make sure you are aware of any restrictions or laws pertaining to the use of chainsaws. Local regulations can vary.

    In addition to reading your chainsaw owner's manual and this guide, learn how to use a chainsaw by having an experienced person with you the first time you use your saw. This will help you safely learn how to get the feel for the saw and how it cuts through various types of wood. Having an experienced person with you will also help you safely troubleshoot if your saw gets stuck, if you have trouble operating the saw or if you experience kick back, a common chainsaw behavior that experienced chainsaw users know how to deal with. Practicing using your chainsaw in a safe environment and in the company of an experienced chainsaw user will help you learn how to operate the saw comfortably. For general questions about chainsaw safety, maintenance or operation, visit your local Tractor Supply Co. store and an expert team member will be happy to assist.

    Getting Started Using a Chainsaw: Safety First

    Chainsaws are efficient power tools that, when used incorrectly, can be dangerous. Safety should always be the first priority for anyone using a chainsaw. Here are a few quick chainsaw safety tips.

    What to wear while operating a chainsaw is important, protective clothing helps protect chainsaw users from injuries to areas of the head and hands, the most common types of injuries to occur while using a chainsaw. Eyes, ears, and fingers are especially vulnerable. The best way to fully protect yourself while using a chainsaw is full-coverage safety clothing that is specially made for chainsaw safety. Tractor Supply Co. carries a wide variety of chainsaw safety apparel and accessories. Chainsaw protective apparel does not prevent accidents from happening, however protective clothing can help decrease the amount of injury that occurs should there be an accident.

    Tractor Supply Co. carries all of the personal protective clothing you will need for using a chainsaw, including:

    • Chainsaw helmet with full-coverage visor to protect the eyes and ear protection to prevent hearing loss. Never use a chainsaw without a full-coverage helmet.
    • Thick work gloves will help protect your hands while operating the saw.
    • Steel-toe work boots with built-in saw protection protect feet from falling objects and will reduce the extent of the injury in case the saw accidentally comes into contact with your feet while the chainsaw is running.
    • Other safety work wear such as a high visibility safety suit, protective chaps or pants and a protective jacket can help reduce injury if a chainsaw accident happens. This type of protective clothing is specifically made for chainsaw safety and is constructed using strong threads of fiber that become tangled in the rotating saw as soon as the chain saw comes into contact with the fabric, causing the chainsaw chain to stop rotating.
    • Have easy access to a first-aid kit, mobile phone and a whistle. You want to be able to call for help if you need to.
    • Take an experienced person with you if you are a beginner. And, even if you are an experienced chainsaw user, it is always a good idea to have a buddy nearby when operating a chainsaw in case you are unable to call for help.
    • Before attempting to fell trees, make sure you have a good understanding of how to fell a tree properly and safely.
    • Before attempting to saw a large or precarious trunk or limb, learn about proper cutting techniques for each scenario.

    Learning about chainsaw safety and techniques not only helps you work safely, but proper chainsaw use could save time in the long run.
