What chainsaw protection boots?
I’ve used steel toe capped work boots while using my saw but feel something specific should be on my feet given how much I use a chainsaw.
There seem to be two types, wellies or leather boots. I won’t be climbing trees, most all my sawing is done on the horse, so what would best suit my needs?Posted 5 years agoskiMember

Wellies are fine if you never want to walk anywhere in them or go on slopes, they are an even worse fit than regular wellies and no more waterproof than a decent pair of boots.
Eltens – avoid like AIDS, had various types between us, very comfy out the box, but leather is soft and rips, stitching breaks and on the last pair, the sole just disintegrated, gradually losing lugs. None have lasted more than 6 months.
Got some Husqvarna boots now, best pair yet, boss has them, sawyer has them, contractor has them. Tall and stiff like ski boots at first, but only pair of boots I’ve had that haven’t eaten the heel of my socks. Just like wellies, you won’t get wet feet until you go over the tops.
Got some old Oregon riggers type boots with rear laces at home, very tempted to get them re-soled as near slick, but they are made so strong, I’m not sure they’d be able to sepaerate them
EDIT: Husqy boots are Technical 24Posted 5 years agofreeride_frankieMember
Go for leather boots rather than the welly type. Even with the ballistic nylon inside, the leather is still the best protection.Apart from that the choice is yours. Haix are prob the top bods. I use Elten Aquafell as I find them far more flexable, flippin expensive thou, as are Haix!!Posted 5 years agomechmonkeyMember
You can’t beat the Meindl boots. Comfy as slippers almost from the get go, incredibly breathable which is a problem I always had with wellies and versatile enough to be a great hiking boot to boot.
They are overkill for what you need but I think you do need them. 😀Posted 5 years ago
