Weathering the Storm: 9 Required Advices For Using A Chainsaw To Remove Debris
It is storm season, as soon as a tornado or hurricane attacks, clean-up gets started.
Often times, storm clean-up involves involvement from volunteers who supplement the work of specialists in cleaning out miles of debris. Many are weekend warriors who have never tackled this type of huge task – and may also never have used a chainsaw in such rigorous circumstances.
Those brave volunteers need some guidance on how to get ready for, use and preserve a chainsaw all through intense storm clean-up efforts.
Jared Abrojena, an Antioch, California-based certified treeworker and licensed arborist, addresses the topic in layman’s terms. The 2015 ISA Tree Climbing World Champion, Abrojena is an skilled regarding how to trim and fell trees. He usually shares insights from his own experience working with a team of arborists to clean up hundreds of dropped trees on the grounds of the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, just weeks ahead of 2013 Masters.
Abrojena’s 9 needed strategies – if followed – makes sure that the work of courageous storm clean-up volunteers is safe and effective. They are:
* Safety first. Take a little time to practice just before getting started. Make certain to read through the owner’s handbook for the chainsaw you will certainly be using.
* Be prepared. This is a catch-all of tips concerning regular chainsaw maintenance and the possession of personal protective equipment (PPE).
* Map it out. Evaluate the overall scope of destruction, and also making a plan for how to tackle it. The plan ought to include coordinating with other volunteers, divvying up the job and prioritizing
* Know your limits. You should not volunteer for a job you are unprepared for. There will be lots of work to go around, so only tackle jobs that you’re comfortable dealing with.
* Buddy up. No one must cut trees by themselves, due to the risk of error or injury. Pair up with another volunteer, but stay a safe distance apart when operating saws.
* A good start. A chainsaw is best started on the ground, having the chain brake engaged. Don’t “cut” corners throughout intense, fast-paced clean-up efforts.
* The right cut. To obtain the correct cut, use careful pruning methods to relieve tension from a branch or tree limb.
* Relax. You’re not Superman, and most errors happen once you are tired. Get regular rests and keep replenished with water.
*Pamper your tools. Continuing maintenance at the time of storm clean-up is necessary, since you will be pushing your chainsaw hard. Stop regularly to clean filters and tighten chains.
