Written by experienced City & Guilds NPTC trainer and assessor David Vickers of Drivelink Training and supported by Makita UK, the 131-page Guide to Chainsaw Maintenance covers the theory and practical tasks required to look after and maintain a chainsaw in regular use.

It covers bar and chain configurations, guidance on fuel systems and air cleaner routines and safety precautions, it is described as ideally suited to those new to chainsaws, or those taking their Level 2 assessment.

Makita UK marketing manager Kevin Brannigan said: "Makita UK has supported David Vickers in the production of this very useful guide as we recognise that all chainsaw operators need to be mindful of routine maintenance to keep the performance levels of their saws in top notch condition."
