      Bob says be really, really, careful if you're doing the one-handed thing. And thanks for recommending his new toy...to be delivered Friday. (As I told him, this makes a lot of sense considering that he old-manned down to an electric chainsaw years ago and there are places where several extension cords or wet ground make that one impractical.)

      Let's see, should I get it for an anniversary present for my husband when I know he'll never touch it or should I just treat myself?

      Tsk. Tsk.

      Just treat yourself. If he says anything, just say, "well...you know what I could have done..."

      Well, I for one would not advise doing things one handed. With a chainsaw that's probably the best way to get cut. You have to remember it is still a spinning sawblade no matter the size. The big metal thing where you put your second hand is an emergency brake. It is designed for kick back which can and will happen. When it does it is extremely violent and not even the biggest of lumberjacks can stop it. When it happens, it is designed so that your second hand, the one holding on to that handle at the top will mash into that guard. The Guard applies an emergency brake to the chain stopping it before it can cut you. If you use that one handed the kick back can actually kick it and spin the blade around back into your arm, because trust me the human wrist can't stop that.

      Please hold the chain saw properly for your own safety. They are designed to be held two handed for a purpose. It may seem small and harmless. If used properly they are as safe as any other saw. However used properly are the key words.

      Watch this video, the guy goes through it kind of quickly but he covers the braking system on a chainsaw and how to use it.
      The design is completely different. Everything you described is everything I hate about chainsaws. It stops instantly when the safety trigger is released and is so short that it can't bend around. It's actually meant for people who climb trees.

      Let me know what he thinks. I just love this thing. It's actually easier to operate than my reciprocating saw and a lot more powerful.

      Let Bob know that the tip guard is permanent. It looks like it should come off but it doesn't.

      Just be careful. Again part of the design of the chainsaw brake is because typically when something happens, it is going to happen fast, and people when they get scare the natural reactions is to clench, not let go. Just looking for your safety. I know it is a teeny tiny chainsaw, but human flesh is softer than wood and as fast as it goes through a piece of wood it will go faster through flesh. Just saying be careful still.
