Chainsaw Safety

Working with a chainsaw involves many different work situations with both simple and more complicated steps. The chainsaw is a very effective tool, but it can also be dangerous if used improperly. In order to avoid accidents and unnecessary strain, you should use the correct working techniques, the best possible safety equipment and a modern chainsaw with functioning safety features.

Log Splitters & Saw Horses

Log Splitters & Saw Horses make cutting logs and splitting them to make firewood much, much easier, and also much safer.

Log Splitters
A log splitter is a piece of machinery used for splitting firewood from logs that have been pre-cut into sections, or rounds. Log Splitters consist of a hydraulic ram or electrical rod and piston assembly and are usually rated by the tons of force they generate. The higher the force, the greater the thickness or length of the round that it can split.

Saw Horses
A basic Saw Horse is just a beam with four legs used to support a board or plank for sawing. More elaborately designed saw horses designed to cut branches ready for splitting into firewood are called sawbucks in the USA.

Saw Horses are available that help you to cut rounds of an equal length, and even more elaborate ones support the chainsaw for you, making the job even easier and safer.
