Available in five styles including Bib & Brace, the chainsaw trousers have Kevlar fibres beneath an outer layer to meet European EN381 Class 1 standard where the chain runs at a maximum of 20m per second. They are made to Type A regulation, which provides protection to the front of the leg.
The trousers come in five waist sizes from 32in to 40in. Entry-level trousers and B&B versions in green are made from 50 per cent cotton and 50 per cent polyester. Grey Super Trousers, Grey Super B&B and Orange Pro Trousers are 100 per cent polyamide.
The Pro Cutting Jacket also meets the EN381 protection standard, while the Working Jacket and Working Jacket Super are also available. Makita's Starter Safety set contains protective forester trousers in line with DIN EN 381 standard, protective helmet with visor and ear protection in line with DIN EN 397 standard and protective gloves for chainsaw use.
