The chaps are important because most chainsaw accidents occur on legs, with arms and hands a close second. A lot of accidents involve a kickback from a chainsaw so remember to hold the saw firmly, do not overreach to cut, don’t use the tip of the saw for cutting, run the saw at high speed when cutting, and do not cut above shoulder height. This last tip is especially important given the number of partially broken off limbs still hanging in trees.
