Chainsaw Permit/License, where?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Does anyone know where to apply for a chainsaw permit, and who can apply? Any info as to what is required would be a help. As far as I can make out, if the blade is 12" or less then no permit required, anything over 12" appears to need a permit. Strange thing is, sellers I know will sell me 16" but not 18", so this is a bit confusing.

If 16" does not require a permit then I can live with that, but if I have to go and apply for one I may as well get an 18-20" instead. Wonder if they send someone pretty out to measure my tool?

Why would you need a permit for a chainsaw? 

 

I cant say Ive ever heard of that, anywhere. 

 

Edit: I googled and there is wording about needing a permit for a chainsaw. 

 

How stupid is that.

It is a requirement on many saws, there is a control on blade sizes to prevent illegal logging! Those big circular saw blades are licensed, you cannot just go and buy one if it is over a certain size. There is also some really obscure law called "The electric saw act 2002" but it doesn't detail blades. There is even a legal position called "The Chainsaw Registrar" believe it or not! I have already been told by a seller that both the buyer and seller have to hold a license to buy the 18" Bar, but he will sell me a 16" bar, yet as far as I can tell the law is in place for 12" and over.

Absolutely stupid, so yeah its probably implemented in Thailand. 

Indeed, jobs for the boys, open to back handers.

If she's a Thai girl then she'll more likely use the chainsaw to cut your tool off!

She definitely won't need a chainsaw license for a 3 inch chainsaw!

Well your Thai wife can take care of that.

12 inch is more than adequate for a chain saw.

Gradually it deteriorates......The usual suspects! Guess I will stick with my one foot tool for now, maybe push my luck and up it to 16" if I can manage it at a later date.

Did you really expect anyone to take this post seriously?

An old thread but perhaps still informative.
