OMG, is he really pulling the starter cord with the blade in that location?? At least it will prevent the promotion of his gene pool!! :lol: that close to the femoral artery (not to mention his wedding tackle), this is a recipe for a very nasty result. I hope someone explains the error of his ways to him before it's too late.

Arborist by trade here. You wouldn't believe how many greenhorns actually think we are serious when we tell them this is the proper way to start the saw. We of course stop them before they actually start it, but come on...... are you that gullible? Just put the saw down and take the keys out of it...

Let me tell you my chain saw story: I had just been discharged for the Army and returned to Southern Oregon. My friend got me a job logging, I first started setting chokers on a High Lead outfit. I did this for a year and then had the oppertunity to help fall timber, so off I went. I had this Stihl 090 that I was using. I set the bar into this 3 foot Spruce and proceed to cut the face and then the back cut and sure enough down she went. Now Spruce trees are not your ideal tree to limb or buck due to the amount of limbs on the tree. A Spruce tree limbs start at the forest floor and go to the top of the tree. So now that I have the tree on the ground, I start bumping limbs from the tree, as I walked down the tree I hit this knot with the tip of my bar, just then the saw kicked back and I felt this ripping at my rigging pants, I shut the saw off and looked down at me pant, then I get that real sickening feeling in my stomach, I thought oh ****, I cut my leg off. So here I am standing there waiting to see the blood start flowing down my leg and over my boots, no blood, so I slowly opened up the 12 inch rip in my riggin pants and to my surprise, not a scratch on me. That made my day.

That's lucky. My Dad had the habit of when he was limbing a tree before dropping it he would, with one hand, hold the saw as high as he could and drop it down the side of the tree cleaning all the limbs off. He did this for several years until one day he dropped it and it not only took the limbs off but it took his pantleg right at the outside seam off too. Never touched his leg, but tore those pants all up. He said that was a very close call, never did it again.

Worst scare I ever got from a chainsaw was while cutting logs to fireplace size before splitting. The chain came off the bar and wrapped around my hand holding the side handle. Luckily the chain hung up on the saw itself and the motor died. Not a scratch. After a few minutes of shaking, I put the chain back on and made sure it was tensioned right. Can happen to any body, Ted Nudgent cut his leg live on TV. Even famous people bleed.

Wow, I think if I was you after I got the chain off I would have said a prayer of thanks. That could have turned messy so easily.

If this comment was meant for me all I can say is "I got lucky" no other excuse. I was trying to get the last few cuts in before I quit for the day. I knew the chain was a little loose, but didn't expect it to come off. Shows what getting in a hurry can do for you, I try not to do that ( hurry) anymore. I also wear leather work gloves when cutting now. Not that they will stop a chain, but can't hurt.
