Kickback is the cause of most major chain saw injuries, and it happens when the chain jams and stops in the wood. Make sure to position yourself so you won’t be in the path of the chain saw if it kicks back by standing slightly to the left side of the chain saw. Also, always keep both hands on the chain saw while cutting with a firm grip!

STIHL Tip: Your STIHL chain saw only provides top performance when your chain is sharp. If your saw chain no longer pulls itself into the wood, creates a fine sawdust or your chain saw stops cutting straight, your saw chain may be dull!
