Picked this up today. I will need a control rod for it though. This is the one for 3hp tractors. It has a 20" blade. It looks to be in good condition with a straight and true blade. I think after I get it cleaned up that it will be a very nice piece.

Wow that looks mean, you would not be able to buy that now as there seem to be to many safety restrictions, personally i think there are too many idots out there who dont know how to handle stuff correctly or safely,

That would be neat.  Maybe cutting a small tree?

Wonder why they don't sell stuff like that new anymore ? Or do they ?

Looks like a huge lawsuit waiting to happen.

They'd also be good for weeding out troublesome forum members. : )

I have several knee high stumps in an area that I cleaned up last year. It will be good for cutting them flush to the ground so that the bush hog can pass over them.

I am new to this site, so I will give some brief into.  I am a retired Environmental, Health and Safety Engineer and live just outside of Charleston, SC.  My brother, who lives in south Georgia, has a David Bradley Mobile Power Saw, Model No. 917-58604.  It is in fairly good condition.  This saw belonged to my father who bought it new in 1953.

Back in the late 50’s, I helped my father cut firewood with it.

With some minor adjustments it should crank.  My brother is interested in selling it.  No price has been set for it and I am interested to know what something like this would sell for.

I have some pics of it.  Also have some papers indicating Model No. and attachments.
