Just wanted to show you guys my John Deere Saw.  I have completely reconditioned it.  Made the decals myself, too.  She hasn't been run in a few years, but I do plan on getting it running this summer.  I am sure the carburetor needs a good cleaning by now.  New plug, and away she should fire right up. Boy, this saw is loud as heck, too.  Anyhow, here she is.2216760047_315ec0fac0_z.jpg

I didn't even know John Deere made chainsaws until last month.  How rare are they? 

 

You did a great job, by the way!

Hi,
I don't think John Deere made their own chain saws.
For example from in the 1980's and 1990's they were made by Kioritz(sp).
The same company that makes Echo brand power equipment.
It probably has a label somewhere that tells who made it.

By the way, looks very nice.

Chuck

I have a big, old, heavy Deere #60V saw made by Kioritz. It came from a surplus auction from the State of NH - a friend bought it, never ended up using it, then gave it to me. 

 

Not mine, but mine looks just like this one:

I think this is the only picture I have of my saw:

This saw is from approximately 1971 or so.  It is actually a Remington SL9 with John Deere paint and decals.  Remington produced saws of this nature for John Deere back in the day.  Regardless of who actually manufactured it, I love this saw and it has two of my favorite colors.  Green & Yellow!  Cheers, all.

Nice restoration, You have possibly inspired me to start work on my Pioneer 620, it had unfairly been put on the back of the queue for too many years, i really enjoyed the last saw resto i did.

Thanks.  I will start working on it as soon as I can.  Believe it or not, we are supposed to get 8-13" of snow tomorrow through Monday.  I don't believe it will be too hard to get going again.  When I do, I promise I will get a video of it running.
