Originally printed in 2009 as Homeowner's Complete Guide to the Chainsaw, this revised and expanded edition is a must-read for anyone who uses a chain saw.
It covers virtually every aspect of handling the tool safely and confidently for a variety of tasks, beginning with advice on buying the right model, wearing protective gear and avoiding accidents when operating a chain saw. Step-by-step instructions, supplemented by hundreds of photos and illustrations, take the reader through cutting and splitting firewood, trimming hedges and overhead branches, felling small and large trees and milling lumber from logs. It concludes with a detailed chapter on sharpening and other maintenance routines.
