Chainsaws and Hedge Trimmers are probably the 2 most powerful yet dangerous tools in the Landscape Industry. I want to know how many of you guys had accidents with these tools before? I had an accident last summer with my Hedge Trimmer. The handle of the trimmer was wet and my hand slipped and I couldnt let go of the throttle fast enough. Cut a hole the size of a quarter right thru my pants, and boy did it leave a wound on my left leg! . Somebody I know actually got hurt big time using a chainsaw a few years ago. No Chaps, No Helmet, was actually lifted up in a Bobcat bucket not strapped in to trim the top of a 12' Tree . Anyways, the saw kicked back, he fell from the bucket and down he went with the saw still going. Face was banged up for a long long time after that. Can never be too careful I guess. Whats your guys stories?
