ABSTRACT

Insights and Lessons from a Fuel Geyser Event   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "'I share this incident to remind us all that caution needs to be taken as non-COVID [coronavirus disease 2019] threats still exist in our fire world.' [...] Our Grizzly Peak Module recently received a new fleet of STIHL MS-462 R C-M chainsaws. Overall, this seems to be a lighter saw with ample power. They have been running well, with minor issues related to operators learning the nuances associated with the electronically controlled carburetors. Then, this Monday, an experienced sawyer on our module had the first geysering incident--thankfully with minimal consequence."
