How to use a chainsaw in cold weather
Working with chainsaws (both electric chainsaws and petrol chainsaws) during winter can be challenging. Here are some tips on what you can do to stay safe and productive when it gets cold outside.
Limbing thick branches
A different work technique is used for limbing thick branches than that used for thin branches. This applies to leaf trees and other trees with thick, extensive branches. The working technique often matches the technique used for crosscutting. In order to avoid splitting and the guide bar pinching, it is important that you use the correct technique and sequence.
Consider the crosscutting carefully, especially for larger logs. An incorrect work technique can be dangerous and cause the trunk to split or the guide bar to become pinched. First assess the tension in the trunk. Make it a habit to look at how the trunk reacts to being cut. You may have misjudged the tension.
Crosscutting - Compressive stress from the bottom
Crosscutting trees which have compressive stress from the bottom should be done by following this technique.
Limbing the downward face
Follow this working technique when limbing the underside of the tree trunck.
Limbing calmly and methodically
Stand on the left side of the trunk and begin limbing on the right side of the trunk. Work calmly and methodically, branch by branch.
