Using a Chainsaw
Using a chainsaw is useful for lot of purposes, but it is also possibly dangerous work. It is not recommended to use a chainsaw until the user is familiar with its hazards, safety requirements and techniques. User’s manual contains all the safety precautions and instructions.
It is important to choose a model that a person is able to operate comfortably, large enough for the purpose. The Husqvarna 455 Rancher is a great saw for people that use the chainsaw on part-time basis. Cutting projects are especially convenient to be done by this model of saw. One more advantage of this saw is that it includes ergonomic technology that is very helpful in doing any project. Features of the Husqvarna 455 Rancher are easier starting and the engine flood risk is greatly reduces, it is possible to replace and clean manually the air filter while the centrifugal air cleaner removes large dust and debris. Fuel usage is reduced by up to 20 % and fuel emissions are reduced by up to 60 %.
The air filter tends to clog up with debris and dust and thus has to be cleaned from time to time. Although every chainsaw nowadays has safety features and protective clothing, there is still possibility of injuries to arise. The risk is present because of the large forces involved in the work, fast-moving, chain is sharp and machinery vibrates and has a loud noise.
Gasoline-powered chainsaws expose users to harmful carbon monoxide, especially indoors or in partially enclosed outdoor areas. Chainsaw training is organized and planned to provide technical knowledge and skills for safely use of the equipment. Techniques that are used nowadays are sizeup, felling, limbing, bucking, binds, brushing and slashing.Chainsaws are used also to cut concrete, brick and stone, but those chainsaws are special, similar to ordinary chainsaws but having cutting edges embedded with diamond grit.
