Slide 29


    Type: Picture slide
    Content: Two images: one illustration of a worker holding a chain saw and one photo of a hand-held chop saw.

    A hand-held saw is portable and requires only the hand to operate it. Hand-held saws can be powered or manual. Powered hand-held saws are potentially more dangerous because the operator can lose control of the machine.
