Guest Editor Yuantao Teng (Jilin Normal University, Shiping City, China)

Knapsack brush cutter is a kind of portable forestry machinery which is widely used at home and abroad. It was mainly used in forestry operation field such as landscaping, garden maintenance, forest cleaning, forest tending and harvesting crops. Chronic occupation injury and safety accidents caused by cutting irrigation operation ever are increasing in China. Worker's wrong cutting irrigation posture is the main cause of workers' occupational diseases and hazards. Based on ergonomics, the redesign of shape and structure of brush cutter can standard the postures of operators, thereby reducing the disease rate of the operators' musculoskeletal disorders and it can reduce the occupational safety accidents.
