Sunday 25 March 2018 9.30am – 3.30pm – Bywong NSW

Chainsaws can be a highly useful addition to your tool collection but poor maintenance and lack of confidence in using them can often see chainsaws parked under the work bench. This is an introductory workshop for beginners as well as people with previous experience who want to know more. Topics include chainsaw safety, operating a chainsaw, understanding kickbacks, maintaining chainsaws and using axes. Barry Aitchison is a certified trainer and assessor with over 35 years of experience in developing and delivering chainsaw courses to government and individuals.

BRural is providing sponsorship for this event and will be presenting a short information session about their products at lunchtime. Sponsorship allows us to reduce the cost of the workshop.

Tickets cost $ 38.00 per person and include morning tea and lunch.  Read more
