These boots contain pads of cut and puncture-retardant material designed to reduce the risk or severity of injury to the parts of the foot covered by the pads in the event of contact with a rotating chain. In some contacts, the pads may stop the chain. In other contacts, the pads will resist the cutting process only for a fraction of a second. The actual degree of protection afforded will vary with the speed of the chain at the time of contact, the power of the saw and similar factors. Severe personal injury can result from contact with the chain of your chainsaw despite use of these boots. These boots are not intended to be a substitute for good safety procedures in the use of your chainsaw. If the protective pads of these boots are damaged or cut, the cut-retardant qualities of the padsmay be eliminated. Once the protective pads are cut or damaged, these boots should no longer be used as protective clothing.
WARNING FOR ELECTRIC CHAINSAW USERS!
The fibers will not stop the sprocket on most electric chainsaws because of their constant high torque.
WARNING! Improper use of any power tool may cause serious
or fatal injury. Read, understand and follow carefully the operating
and safety instructions in your instruction manual before using such products.
