Chainsaw Competitions will thrill crowds at WoodEX for Africa

South Africa’s most skilled chainsaw operators and talented wood carvers are sharpening their blades for the chainsaw competitions scheduled to take place this Saturday, 24 March 2012 during the WoodEX for Africa Exhibition held at Gallagher Convention Centre.

Arranged by the South African Loggers Association (SALA) who is solely responsible for the running of chainsaw competitions in South Africa, these competitions will consist of speed cutting and carving components, as well as a novice class. For the novice class the main manufacturers, Stihl and Husqvarna, will supply 70cc saws for novices to compete with, but participants need to have a basic knowledge of a saw and their own safety equipment.
