Just picked this Mall up today. It is a two man saw, and is heavy as heck. My plan is a new cord, clean it up , and see if she runs!

Looks like it'd make a man out of you in a hurry.

Trying to get a feel for scale, but that tag says 1.5 Hp? If so, it's bigger than it looks in the pics, I bet it is heavy!

She has a 26" bar on her. And yes, it is big and very heavy! Have not weighed it yet. May take it to work tomorrow and put her on the scale to find out. And the tag reads portable. For who? The hulk?

Yeah, the only limitations would be cord length and the strength of the guy trying to carry it.

Neat saw.

Or make several pieces out of a man if you weren't careful. That thing looks dangerous! Are those blood stains on the bar?

That's cool, never seen one before.
Please keep us posted on your refurb.
How does the chain get oiled? manual, or auto?

I have not a clue how it is oiled. I just brought it home with my two wheeled tractor today. It went straight into the garage for now. We are going to Fargo this weekend, but I do plan on cleaning it up some next week and see what I have. I cannot find anything about it on the internet, either. Not one single thing. The model # is 26150, and serial # is 108136 if anyone else wants to take a crack at some research also. Thanks.

I inherited one like that from my great grandfather a few years back. And it looks to be about the same size.

I still cannot find anything about it! Would like to get some information.

The more I look at that, the more that extra "Handle" calls out to my now fragmented memory. Like I've seen it before... then it dawns on me.

The extra piece mounts in a spring loaded pivot. This ive seen before on tools scavanged from the old Cyclops Steel plant in Titusville. They had a few chop saws that were pretty good sized and would slide a steel bar to a stop & run the saw... wa-la, cut to length.

If I were a betting kind of guy, I'd say this was mounted on a table in a saw mill and used for getting the right lengths or truing the ends of the logs or dimensional lumber.

This is what I was thinking, Alan! Using it as a 'chop' saw. Set up a long table with this at one end. Put your long wood up there and chop to length.

I "saw" one of those before but it didn't have the bar at the rear, i would go along with the others and say it was to mount it on a pivot for cross cutting, yours looks like it is part of the design and has always been there, perhaps its mounted on a bench and you stand on the helper handle side? but then how would you control the throttle..

This is one of mine i restored a while ago, although its a bit of a beast to work with i would call it a one man saw, but it has a helper handle on it, in this case the handle is used to move the saw around, so instead of carrying it you pull it along on its wheels (in theory..i tried it and its almost impossible to drag it through branches etc, much easier to just carry it)

That said, the other one like yours i saw didnt have the rear support bar but did have a helper handle, i think if i was using your one as a portable saw, i would really like someone on the other end !
