Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross-cutting
Chainsaws are powerful and dangerous tools, therefore it is essential when operating and maintaining them that you have total confidence and expertise in what you are doing, so avoiding accidents. Our two day chainsaw maintenance and cross-cutting course for occasional users* will provide you with the appropriate techniques and safety guidelines to ensure that you are not only confident when using a chainsaw but also aware of relevant health and safety guidelines making sure you stay protected.
* If you are using a chainsaw in a professional capacity it is recommended you register for our Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross-cutting training course or our Lantra Awards Level 2 Award in Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross-cutting.
