Never, Ever, Ever work the chainsaw like a See-Saw.
ALWAYS keep the heel of the blade butted up against your work.

Of course, trying to tell her this led to the 'Why don't you do it then?'
Why do they always say that?
They have figured it out...the easiest way to get you to do something is to start it themselves, especially if some danger is involved.

Step one: Watch Axmen
Step two: Email the History channel and bitch at them for putting such garbage on a once good channel.
Seriously though, it was interesting and insightful during the first season but then it went the way of jersey shore type crap.
Every other word was "beep" this and "beep" that.

Nicest saw I ever had the pleasure of using was my brother in law's Husquvarna 455 Rancher:
It was a used blade but it still walked through 18"+ diameter trunks, limbs and branches With Ease.
90 degree sideways cut through a near 20" base took only a few minutes.
Good tip to remember:
Some times you just have to let the saw sit so the blade can cool down.
It doesn't have to be dull to throw out fine [near sawdust] cuttings. just being too hot will result in the same thing. a mere 3-5 minutes is often all it takes.
