  • Different kinds of chainsaws are operated by electric or with petrol and you need to check its bottom. There is a metal bar at the bottom, which is known as the chain catcher. Please check this catcher before you use and if there is any damage in this bar then replace the same immediately.
  • You have to lock the throttle before using the machine. It is mostly located at the rear handle of the machine. It is a trigger, which controls the chain during the operation. You can find a stop control button or a lever located at the rear portion. During the operation, if you want to stop it suddenly to avoid any accident, then you can press this button.
  • Along with the lever, you can also find a flat guard, which will protect your right hand while operating it. Sudden kickback of the chainsaw can lead to some dangerous problems and you cannot resist the pressure of this kickback. So beware of this situation and always press the stop lever if required!
