Things to consider when limbing.
Only move when you have the trunk between yourself and the bar of the saw. Branches on the upper side of the trunk can be cut with the saw lying on its side. You can limb the branches on the underside of the trunk at the same time as the rest if you have a good working height. If the tree has large branches, they can be under great tension, in which case you should limb them from the outside and in towards the trunk. Saw with the bar held vertically to reduce the risk of it getting caught. If the branch is very large, you might have to cut it from two sides. Observe how the branches are tensioned so that you can saw them from the correct side, otherwise there is a risk that the saw will get caught.
If the tree is lying right on the ground, you will have to wait with the branches on the bottom, until you are finished with the others and can roll the trunk over. Be careful when the trunk is close to the ground, since it’s quite a risk that you will touch something with the tip of the bar, which will cause a kickback. Now you got crosscutting left, study the tree before you start especially if the trunk is thick.
How use the chainsaw for Cross Cutting
When you finished work, it’s a good idea to take a look at your saw to make sure it’s functioning properly, it’s safe and ready to go the next time you need it. Of course, maintenance requirements depend on how much you use the saw.
