Kickbacks, skating, bouncing and droppingDifferent forces can have an effect on the safecontrol of the product.

  • Skating is when the guide bar glides ormoves quickly across the wood.
  • Bouncing is when the guide bar lifts off thewood and touches it again and again.
  • Dropping is when the product drops downafter the cut is made. This can cause themoving chain to touch a part of the body orother objects, causing injury or damage.
  • Kickback is when the end of the guide bartouches objects and moves rearward, up orsuddenly forward. Kickback also occurswhen the wood closes in and pinches thesaw chain during the cut. Loss of controlcan result if the product touches an objectin wood.
  • Rotational Kickback can occur when themoving chain touches an object at thetop of the guide bar. This can cause thechain to bury into the object and causethe chain to stop immediately. The resultis a very fast, reverse reaction thatmoves the guide bar up and rearward inthe direction of the operator.
  • Pinch-Kickback can occur when the sawchain suddenly stops during the cut. Thewood closes in and pinches the movingsaw chain along the top of the guidebar. The sudden stop of the chainreverses the chain force and causes theproduct to move in the oppositedirection of the turn of the chain. Theproduct moves rearward in the directionof the operator.
  • Pull-In can occur when the saw chainsuddenly stops when the moving chaintouches an object in the wood along thebottom of the guide bar. The suddenstop pulls the product forward and awayfrom the operator, which can easily cause the loss of control of the productby the operator.Make sure that you understand the differentforces and how to prevent them before youoperate the product.To prevent kickbacks, skating, bouncing anddropping
  • While the engine runs, make sure to holdthe product tightly. Keep your right hand onthe rear handle and the left hand on thefront handle. Tightly hold with thumbs andfingers around the handles. Do not let go.
  • Keep control of the product during the cutand after the wood falls to the ground. Donot let the weight of the product drop downafter the cut is made.
  • Make sure that the area in which you arecutting is free from blockage. Do not let thenose of the guide bar touch a log, branchor other blockages while you operate theproduct.
  • Cut at high engine speeds.
  • Do not overreach or cut above shoulder height. Always have fire extinguishing tools and ashovel available to help prevent forest fires.

Note: Stop engine (0 )Open engine (1 )

To fell a tree

  1. Remove dirt, stones, loose bark, nails,staples and wire from the tree.
  2. Make a notch 1/3 the diameter of the tree,perpendicular to the direction of the fall.
  3. Make the lower horizontal notch cut. Thiswill prevent either the saw chain or theguide bar from being pinched when thesecond notch is made.
  4. Make the felling back cut (X) at least 50mm (2 in) higher than the horizontalnotching cut. Keep the felling back cutparallel to the horizontal notching cut soenough wood is left to act as a hinge. Donot cut through the hinge. The hinge woodkeeps the tree from twisting and falling inthe wrong direction. 
  5. As the felling back cut nears the hinge, thetree starts to fall. Make sure that the treecan fall in the correct direction and not rockrearward and pinch the saw chain. Stop thecut before the felling back cut is completeto prevent this. Use wedges of wood,plastic or aluminium to open the cut and letthe tree fall along the necessary line of fall.
  6. When the tree begins to fall, remove theproduct from the cut, stop the engine, putthe product down, then use the retreat pathplanned. Be alert for overhead limbs fallingand watch your footing. 


To limb a tree

  1. Use larger limbs to hold the log off the ground.
  2. Remove small limbs in one cut.

3. Cut branches that have tension from the bottom to the top to prevent pinching the saw chain or the guide bar.

To buck a log

CAUTION: Do not let the sawchain touch the ground.

• If the log is supported along its entire length, cut from the top of the log (known as overbucking).

  • If the log is supported on one end, cut 1/3the diameter from the underside of the log(known as underbucking)
  • If the log is supported on both ends, cut 1/3 the diameter from the top. Complete the cut by underbucking the lower 2/3 of the log tomeet the first cut. 
  • If you buck a log on a slope, always standon the uphill side of the log. Cut throughthe log while you maintain complete controlof the product, then release the cuttingpressure near the end of the cut whilefirmly gripping the rear handle and fronthandle.
