Abstract
Various factors influencing the design of antivibration type chain saws are described, methodology advantages, and disadvantages of various testing techniques are also explored. The hand held method, Swedish method and Swedish exciter method are described for measuring vibration. Some improvements in design and the consequent reduction in vibration are noted. There is an appeal to the scientific community as a whole to provide adequate damage risk guidance to manufacturers so that they may further reduce the potential vibration induced white finger damage of their products.
