I don't know what it is but if i see it coming I'm running in the other direction! I wonder if it's some sort of brush saw but with no propulsion it seems it would be for use on level ground.

No I don't think it is. We were a Bachtold dealer for many years and I don't ever remember seeing one like that.
Bachtold did have a saw blade on their weed mower and we still have one on the farm. You could also turn it 90 degrees and use it to cut up firewood. It was the reason there were so many one legged farmers back in the 60's.

It's a Christmas tree cutter, so I've been told. I've never seen one in person, but I found a link for a more modern and much larger version.

Christmas tree saw!! That makes sense. It still looks like a dangerous beast though!

Hmmm. At only 50 miles or so apart, that makes for a possibility of some kind of relationship, what with all the buying, selling, and moving of companies over the past 40 years.

The concept is very similar. It's just the scale and updated safety features that's different.

I'm not saying they are related, just that it is a possiblity.

I think I found another one of these. It looks to have a Clinton motor, I can probably buy this one.

I don't really have a need for it but, I just want to fix it up for show. I would never fire it up at a show, just to dangerous.

Youre saying its another brand or that it's not the same kind of tool?

It is a different brand, Bachtold had a gear box on the left side and the frame was a little different but the design was the same.
