    It's back by popular demand! Essential information for anyone who uses a chainsaw.


    One of my favorite courses to teach!

    Sandcut Outdoors is offering a Basic Chainsaw Skills class for homeowners and other non-professionals. Whether you’re considering buying your first chainsaw or whether you use a saw occasionally, but were never fully comfortable using it, this class is designed for you. This demonstrational program will introduce new chainsaw users to the basics of using a chainsaw including operation, safety, and some basic first aid. This class will demonstrate how to read compression and tension in wood, as well as how to understand kickback and pinching and how these forces work on your chainsaw.

    Not suitable for children under 14. Part of this class will be outdoors. Please dress for the weather. Hearing protection is recommended.

    $20 per person.

    The class will be offered on Saturday, October 12, 2019 and will run from 9 am to 2 pm at the Hauser Nature Center, 1567 Long Pond Rd., Long Pond, PA.

    Pre-registration is required by Wednesday, October 9, 2019, and space is limited to 30 participants.

    Man, I could have used something like this a couple weeks ago. I could not get that chainsaw through anything without binding (or coming close) other than the first cut.
    Got a video? lol

    It used to be so easy, too.

    Nope. No video. Sorry. I'm archaic. :)



    I know how that goes. I have some classes that I want to take as well, but I nave my own classes scheduled on those same weekends. It took me two years to finally complete the Game of Logging trainings.
