  • Chain saw gear.. whats best ?

    Getting more into wood gathering these days for my big stove and wondering if anyone has any recommendations for protective gear ? I nearly took my kneecap off a couple of years ago due to unpredictable fallen pine clearance work, and, as I get older, rekon my need for decent safety kit is now paramount, slower reflexes and fatigue being my new enemy. Plenty stuff on the market .. just want to know what works ?

    Stihl has a line of ppe a set of chainsaw chaps would protect you from accidental knee cap removal. Hard hat with a screen maybe? Gloves as well.

          I think its helmet and leggings of some sort for me .. anyone use trousers or find them too hot compared to chaps ?

            With my physique I find the leggings easier to put on and wear................
