KICKBACK

DAN
GER:
Kickback may occur when the nose or tip of the guide bar touches an
object, or when the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut. In some cases, tip
contact
may cause a lightening-fast
reverse action, kicking the guide bar rapidly back towards
the operator. Pinching the saw chain along the top of the guide bar may push the guide bar
rapidly back towards
the operator. Either of these reactions may cause a loss of control over the
saw, which could
result in serious injury to the user. Contact with foreign objects within the wood
can also induce a loss of chain saw control.
+ Rotational
Kickback
can happen
when the upper
tip of
the guide bar contacts
an object
while
the chain
is
moving
(Fig. 1 & 2). This can cause
the chain to dig into
the object
and momentarily
stop moving.
The guide
bar
is then kicked
up and back toward
the operator
in a
lightning-fast
reverse
reaction.
+ Pinch
Kickback
can happen
when the wood
on either
side of a cut closes
in and pinches
the moving
saw chain
along the top
of the guide
bar. This can cause the chain
to instantly
stop.
The chain
force is then reversed,
causing
the saw to move in the opposite
direction,
sending
the saw straight
back toward
the operator.
+
Pull-In
can happen
when the moving
chain on the bottom
of the guide bar hits a foreign
object
inside the wood.
This
can cause the chain to suddenly stop. The saw is then
pulled forward
and away from the operator,
which
could
potentially
result in the loss of control of the saw.
KICKBACK
SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS
+ DO NOT over reach.
+ DO NOT cut above shoulder
height.
+ DO NOT make cuts with the tip of the guide
bar (Fig. 1).
+ DO NOT let the tip of the guide bar contact
any object,
such
as a log, branch,
ground
or other obstruction.
Remove or avoid
any obstructions
that might impact
the
tip of the guide bar while
cutting
(Fig. 3).
+ DO NOT cut more than
one log or branch
at a time.
Kickback
+ DO NOT twist the saw when
removing
the guide bar
from an undercut
while bucking.
+ DO NOT operate
the unit with one hand! Serious
injury to
the operator,
helpers or bystanders
may result from one-
handed
operation.
This unit is intended
for two-handed
use. Always grip the unit firmly with both hands when the
engine is running.
Keep the left hand on the front handle
and the right hand on the rear handle. Use a firm grip with
thumbs
and fingers encircling
the handles. A firm grip will
help maintain
control
of the unit and reduce
kickback.
Do
not let go! Stand slightly to the left of the unit to avoid
being in the direct line of the saw chain.
Follow all the
Proper Grip on Handles
instructions
in the
Operating
Instructions
section.
