Don”t discard or throw that smaller wood into the chipper! The Chainsawbuddy is designed to cut downed wood without grounding the chain, while also “holding” the wood in place. How many times have you stood on one leg while using the other leg to steady the wood you were cutting? Such a dangerous practice yet, hard to avoid, until now. The Chainsawbuddy holds the wood for you, letting you work in a safer, more balanced position. This gives you extended saw chain life, as well as a quicker and safer way to use your chainsaw. While the two swing arms are holding the wood underneath, two serrated uprights are holding the wood in place. When the chainsaw starts digging in, the uprights prevent the wood from rolling or climbing the chain.
