Dont be stupid like me wear your chaps. hit my leg with my ms460 got part of the bone cutting an exit root from a tree i was felling. No surgery no major deal some stitches no major arteries nerves or tendons. What a stupid rookie move i made using the saw. Some downtime and a whole lot of hurt pride but coulda been alot worse. Hurts like heck though. Trust me you look down and see some bone it will get your attention fast.
