    The one on the left I believe is a Mall chainsaw. The one on the right I have no idea.

    The one on the left might be a Mall. There were a whole bunch of different brands that looked pretty similar back in the late '40s and early '50s, I believe. The one on the right is a Wright Reciprocating Saw. The blade slides back and forth and is driven by the driveshaft. I've never fired it up, although it does generate a spark when you yank the cord, so it would probably run. I wouldn't want to tangle with that big two-man saw. You can turn the bar 45 degrees for felling. Or, I should say you have to turn the bar 45 degrees for felling, because unlike a modern chainsaw engine, the carburetor on those things only worked in the vertical position.

    I'll list 'em, I don't have a group picture.
    Stihl. 009. enough N.O.S. parts to build a brand new 015. and a PORTED MS-361
    Husky one lone PORTED 2100 (this will pull your arm off on start-up if you're not ready for it)
    Dolmar 5100 with heated handles and one without. 7900 with heated handles and one PORTED one without.
    Wright Blade Saw model 520 runs and I have cut with it (slowly)
    MacCulloch 1-40 restored to showroom condition runs like new
    Homelite blue XL-12 restored to showroom condition runs like, new oils when it wants to (manual oile loses prime)
    Mini-Brute 12volt electric saw powered by a Bosch starter motor.
    Sears older electric saw for when it's too early or late to run a gas saw.

    There were 3 Jonsered's 49-SP (great saws, gave 2 of them to friends and sold the other one, which I regret)
    There were 2 Stihl 064's an 026 an 011 or two, 2 or 3 015's , some more Mac's, a David Bradley, a Dolmar 112,119,120 and a KMS4
    (rotary engine saw in a billion pieces, got it that way for $50 and traded it for a new 7900 with 20,24,28 bar and chain set ups)
    At one point there were 20 or more running saws and there have been more than 40 total, I can't even remember them all.

    My local Stihl dealer (Ed's Rentals, Erial, NJ) has an MS880 with a 59" bar. (might as well say 5') I think the price is like $2500. The guy told me they actually sell a few a year.....imagine.....in South Jersey!

    you can port any saw its just opening up the muffler and retuneing it gives you more horse power, and yes that 441 would run like a bat out of ____ ,the 441 are very resticted mufflers trying to meet new emmisions
