Chainsaw Operation

A Practical Guide to Safe Work Techniques for Chainsaw Operators

By Karl Liffman

Chainsaw Operation is a practical guide to safe work technique for chainsaw operators. The introductory chapter provides an overview of chainsaw development through the years. As such, there are a number of old illustrations. Further, this chapter offers advice on the selection of present day chainsaws. To this end, it is supported by a table of specifications for a number of professional type chainsaws. The book makes a point to discuss the safe use of chainsaws generally, and also covers the topics of trimming, cross cutting, ripping, tree falling, chainsaw maintenance, and environmental care. These are supplemented by four appendices relating to the specialized subjects of pole saws, chainsaw mills, the chainsaw drill attachment, and emergency service chainsaws. The text is liberally illustrated with numerous line drawings, photographs, and even cartoons. Chainsaw Operation is a 'must' for those involved in the safe operation and proper maintenance of chainsaws. As such, it is a worthy addition for those in such fields as amenity horticulture, forestry, conservation land management, agriculture, and the emergency services. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO [Subject: How To / DIY Guide, Forestry]
