Reactive Force Events


When operating a STIHL Chainsaw, reactive forces – kickback, pushback and pulling may occur any time the chain is rotating. Reactive forces can cause serious personal injury or death. Watch this video for demonstrations on important safety precautions that you must take while operating your saw.

Be sure to read your Instruction Manual and always wear the proper STIHL Chainsaw Protective Apparel. Visit your nearest STIHL Dealer for more information.
