What fun. Danger with a capital D, plus a shower of ice cold water. If that saw blade caught the machine would run over the operators and likely cut something off on the way across the lake. Looks like a Chevy.

No need for blade guard. If injured apply ice.

Yeah but look at the direction of the water spray. Maybe it is balanced so that it pushes the blade down?
