Nov 10, It doesn't matter if you are a forestry worker or an experienced weekend warrior, using safety gear should be a standard part of your chainsaw practice. Let's not waste your time. If you just want to know which is a great pair of chaps then the Husqvarna protective wrap chaps are. Feb 20, If your smart about cutting then these are a good level of protection for the weekend warrior.
The tough fibres lock the sprocket in place thus halting the chain and hopefully limit damage to the chainsaw operator's leg.
I'd also recommend a cut rated boot too. If I was a professional I would invest in a set of full wraps but for what I do it doesnt make sense. Hell, when I use to work for a logger I didnt even have chaps, neither did anyone else on the bushmulching.barted Reading Time: 7 mins.

Dec 30, Just a weekend warrior trying to be a bit safer. Thanks, and Merry Christmas to everyone! He was a big fan of chaps. They had a tree guy one day at work who should not have been doing tree work. Long story short the only reason he still has his leg is because of a pair of chaps. If you take more than a step without cutting set the brake.

However, if you want to have head, ear, and face protection at a reasonable cost for a weekend warrior like me, then this is he way to go. It is ANSI type 1 class C approved head protection, 22dB noise reduction, dial adjustable 6 point suspension system, removeable sweat band, and comes with both a clear poly carb shield and a wire mesh shield /5(K).
Worse, they take on trees that are straight and easy to cut, leaving the low-quality leaners and misshapen trees in the woods. Find and use a chainsaw that is not too heavy for you.
Work on one tree at a time, taking an hour or so to plan the process, make proper cuts for a fall in the correct location, and bring the tree down with timber wedges.
