  1. You makes I fair chuckle Steve mate ๐Ÿ˜
  2. I never engage the chain brake when moving about and I will be 69 this Januarry . Never had an accident . Will I go to prison ?
  3. I don't know the figures or any data but I know some accidents , even deaths occur when cutting in a tree . The classic " holding and cutting " is at best a nick on the left hand and at worst a cut tendon or a cut artery and bleeding out . Thankfully I have never experienced the above other than my mate cutting his knuckle .
  4. Just clumsy feckers who don't know what they are doing I would suggest .
  5. Husqvarna did something like that on a 346xp I seem to remember . Not popular and I think it was dropped . You wont beat a standard chain brake in good working order in the case of a kickback IMHO .
  6. You would be hard pushed to stop the chain quicker than the inertia brake . Try it. Get your saw , rev it up and poke the nose of the bar hard into a log . The brake will come on instantly ( provided it is in working order ) the saw will recoil in your hands some what but the chain will be stopped dead before it gets anywhere near you .
  7. See my post above ๐Ÿ˜
  8. Your not quite right on the inertia brake bit . It does not require a reactive force by the user . Its a reactive force all right but but usually totally uncontrolled by the user . A kick back for example will set the brake on before the operator knows whats happened .
