Chain Saw Injury Statistics

Chain Saw Injury Statistics:
"According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission there were over 28,500 chain saw injuries in 1999. More than 36% were injuries to the legs and knees.

The average chainsaw injury requires 110 stitches and the average medical cost...can be estimated to be over $12,000.00."
Why we require chaps for using a chain saw. Also steel toed boots are HIGHLY recommended.
