    top-quotation-marks-left.png Like an idiot I got tunnel vision and like a idiot I don't have chaps. Was watching the tree to see what it was doing became fixated on it and stuck the saw in to cut just a little more. When I pulled the saw out, fortunately it wasn't going full throttle I brushed it against my knee. 14 stitches and extremely lucky. Later I told the wife, who is a ER nurse, I won't be cutting again without chaps PERIOD. bottom-quotation-marks-right.png

    This is the exact spot where most people get cut by a chainsaw.

    I've been running a chainsaw for years. Never used chaps until about a year ago (or so). Since then, they've saved me TWICE. DON'T cut without them. Its not a matter of IF, but WHEN..

    Same injury ten years ago, same double bounce, 29 stitches left knee cap. Hedge jumped at felling cut gave me a quick lesson in chaps, 100 percent of the time even when just making a couple quick cuts they are on now. Ruined a pair of stihl chaps already, now running husqvarna technical chaps. They wrap up tighter around the leg.

    The cost of a set of chaps is way less than your Co-Pay at the ER.

    The newbie of each chainsaw owner need to see this catastrophe. When they try to use any chainsaw; they should use the helmet, chaps, gloves, boots etc.

    Didn’t own chaps until I found FHC. Glad I have them. Have too much going on to be sidelined on an avoidable thing.

    Cut your chaps and you think , crap I gotta buy a new pair of chaps. Cut your leg and it's not even in the same thot process. And it will ALWAYS cost exponentially more.
