Lay down a pic of your saws. These are the stoves next best friends other than dry wood. ;-)
I thought this thread woulda took off. Well, here ya go......
Stihl 034AV, Husqvarna 316 (elec), Mac 3516 (given to me in exchange for cutting a branch), old 12" Craftsman (given by a friend cleaning his garage), In the background is my HF 8hp B&S;/27 ton splitter. Not pictured; Remington-saw-on-a-stick)
Oh, we mean business.
I don't really know what they are, but they are oh-so-cool! Thanks for sharing.
The one on the left I believe is a Mall chainsaw. The one on the right I have no idea.
Now were talkin. ;-) Thought maybe I was banned from here.
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.
Thanks Eric! Anyone else? C'mon, I know you can put my puny pile o' saws to shame!
I guess the rest buy their wood already processed. Ya know the softies like Gunner, Bro B, Hogz, iceman and so on....
Psssst That outa get em started. ;-)
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.
Holy Smokes! That's a lot of saws!
Is that for real Gunner? What a 5 foot bar?
He probably uses it to trim his toenails. Saves bendin over.
No it's bogus, saw it on the saw site.
Just running a Stihl 029 Super. But then again, all I do is cut wood. %-P
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!
Here ya go:my weapons of choice and my start on next year's wood.
Tree service guys buy those. And, loggers like the one in my avatar.
wall yes the one on right is a Wright Reciprocating Saw for sure The one on the left might be a mall it could be a disston their tons of others it might be 2
In the soup
What is a ported saw?
Would this be good on a MS441?
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
Flash's MS660 and my 5100s.
That was a work out for my poor little saws...
