One of the rare videos you can find online that actually says and demonstrates how to be really safe from chainsaw kick back related injuries. A top quality chainsaw stand like our Timber Croc Log Holder is a must have.
Having only a safety gear and not using chainsaw stand is not the best recommended practice. Most of chainsaw kick back related injuries happen when the timber is cut on the ground when chainsaw bounces back on a contact of second log ( unsafe practice when people cut two logs at the same time in one go).
Having a chainsaw stand in combination with proper safety gear is the only thing that will really prevent from chainsaw kick back related injuries.
