If you call cutting someone to pieces with a chainsaw tame
This is never shown on camera, it is merely emphasised, much like the ear cutting scene in reservoir dogs. The actual cutting up occurs off screen. It also happens twice and one is a little more up-close and personal, but again it happens a little bit off camera, so theres no actual gory fx of someones guts being torn out by a chainsaw.

The other scene yet again involves a hammer which is gently being hit against someone by a feeble old man who cant quite do the job well.
Leatherface also manages to cut into his leg with his own chainsaw because he falls over and it lands on him.
