    And NEVER pull back on the saw if the bar gets pinched. Saw a very gruesome accident where a guy was killed. I hate using chainsaws now.

    I wondered if anyone would post this story. That's crazy - I'd have freaked out.

    Ha! Did our local boy make the rounds nationally?

    I'd have thought more people here would have something to say about the story.

    Chainsaw's are for sure a dangerous item. But think about those big chipper's. Every year in the the US, about 10 people go THROUGH a chipper. Your just a big pink spot after that.

    Oh those chippers.....I shutter at the thought. Had a couple nightmares of getting my leg caught in a branch as it was being chopped up.......

    I'll never use one of those.
