Is this Power+ saw safe with normal chainsaw safety gear? There is a big warning on the gear:
"WARNING FOR ELECTRIC CHAINSAW USERS!The fibers will not stop the sprocket on most electric chainsaws because of their constant high torque."

Between the original warning regarding chainsaw chaps vs. long pants; the original was more appropriate. Any long pants that are not designed as PPE (personnel protective equipment) specifically for chainsaw operations will provide marginal protection over no pants at all. Granted, having jeans or any thick material pants would be better than bare skin, but no by much.
My concern with the above revised statement ("long pants") is that a lay person might take that as appropriate and endorsed safety gear.
