2 By 4 Makes Chainsaw Easy To Start
As I get older it gets harder to start my chainsaw, because its hard to hold the saw down and pull on the starter rope at the same time without the saw jumping around, says Ron Pocius, Leonard Mich. Ive tried to stabilize the saw by sticking my toe through the handle loop, but I cant get my whole foot in there.
My brother came up with a simple way to stabilize the saw. He just sticks a short 3-ft. long 2 by 4 through the loop at an angle against the ground, and then stands on the bottom part of the board and pulls on the rope. The saw stays down without jumping around.
I think this idea would work on other gas-powered tools equipped with a starter rope, such as a weed trimmer.
