Company provided saws

Recommended Posts

The large company I used to work for made you provide your own saws (50cc or 60cc standard ground saw, top handle for climbers), but you could buy them through the company and pay the cost of eg £20/week if you wanted. When you left, obviously the saws were yours and you took them with you. Big saws, hedge trimmer blower and the like were provided by the company.


I much prefer this system, as it encourages people to look after their saws, and you can have whatever make & model you want. As above, the thought of communal saws make me wince!

I don't have a problem with the system to be honest and as previously said as it is my saw I ensure it is sharp and maintained but was just wondering about the legislation


It would be nice if the company provided chains/bars and covered servicing and Wear parts however
