Old Two Man Chainsaws

Recommended Posts

Was augering post holes with a modern version that was supposed to have a "safety clutch". This was out in the woods, little ways out, you could see the town, but that's because I was like 1000' in elevation above it.

Hit a large root and it dislocated my shoulder, hurt like a SOB. I left the auger and stumbled to the nearest tree, lined everything up with my other hand and then slammed it back into place against the tree. Instant relief. Sat down for a few minutes to let my head clear, drank some water, and got back to work.

Doctor was mad at me, said I should have come right in and not used shoulder for several weeks. He didn't volunteer to pay my bills for the interval so I guess it wasn't that important to him.
