Homeowner's Complete Guide to the Chainsaw

Title: Homeowner's Complete Guide to the Chainsaw
By: Brian Ruth

For the weekend lumberjack, details all the common uses of the chainsaw: cutting firewood, felling, limbing downed trees, even turning logs to lumber with chainsaw milling attachments. A chapter on splitting and stacking firewood is a bonus. Every procedure is amply illustrated, step by step – everything is there in pictures and words. All the many dangers are clearly described, and the authors are not shy about labeling situations best left to a professional. Chainsaw sharpening, maintenance and purchase are also covered. A very nicely done how-to book, certainly the best I’ve seen on this topic. Chainsaws are commonplace in the mountains around here, and I notice our copies of this book are seeing constant use.
