2. We had a young Soldier damn near take his leg off at the thigh.

He dropped his and tried to grab / recover it as it fell. The blade dug into - but not completely through - his femur.

Horrific.

8. Since when did you need a license to drive a forklift?

During college I drove one for two summers at a salmon processing company and I didn't need no stinkin' license.

It was a fun place to drive a forklift. The floors were covered in fish slime so you could drift the forklift around corners. They didn't brake well on the fish slime either so you'd drop the load on the ground to stop.

12. oh - for quite some time now, especially in larger companies.

Back in the 90s when I worked for CP Rail in the Toronto Shops we had to take a safety course, and pass a practical on driving it - the circle check, and stress on the safe handling of changing the propane tank.

Same thing in the lumberyard I worked in around ten years ago.

Electric one was all the above except safe checking and charging the batteries was part of the training.

ps: some people need to be TAUGHT that parking a forklift with the forks in the air is not a good idea

13. First rule of fork lift driving - FORKS DOWN!

The ones I drove were electric since we were indoors most of the time and processing food.

9. I've spent many hours using a chainsaw.

I always wore the safety gear. Pants and helmet, good boots and face shield, gloves. Arms and shoulders not protected though.
Kickbacks aren't a joke.

10. I'm ranch raised and have been operating chain saws since I was 10 or 11.

So far, none of my dna has bee scattered around the mountain and I have not fallen a tree on my truck, a cat, another saw, or my head.

We have a very large home in snow country and our primary heat are 3 air tight wood stoves. We burn just over 15 cord in a normal winter.

Just for giggles and grins I'll ask the liberals on here a question.

What, except for the diameter of the logs you are cutting, determines the correct bar length for the worker?

11. A guy I knew accidentally killed

his wife with a chainsaw. She was standing behind him as he tried to cut an overhead branch. The saw kicked back and caught her in the neck. Chainsaws are fool killers, for sure.
