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.
Been waiting for mine and yes I am very lucky, I have never used them and when I was younger cut many cords of wood, just recent I was trying to start a saw and got a small bandage injury, had the saw started it would have looked like your injury I am sure. I lost control when the pull cord abruptly stopped when pulled. I was trying to start the saw after replacing the fuel system. Thanks! For sharing I am sure I would have broken down and worked on the wood before the chaps arrived as I got a notice today the shipment was delayed. Good thing I read this this afternoon. Thank you! I will be waiting.
