When working with chainsaws, there is always no safety shortcut. Danger lurks everywhere you could be: logging in the woods, homesteading, landscaping or any other job that includes the little roaring beast. Atop the list of safety precautions is always to wear the chainsaw gloves.
In the course of your work, your hands are your greatest assets. You wouldn’t want to see them chopped off in case the chain snapped off accidentally, wouldn’t you? Well, you might argue that your hands will feel uncomfortable among other excuses, but the risks are just too much.
