Thanks for sharing the video. Sure is nice to know that another piece of equipment was saved from the scrap heap.

Excellent, DanO. I used to use a similar one when I was a kid, although nobody had added any safety guards. It was just the open blade and the deck. It ran off the PTO wheel with one of those wide canvas belts. When I was small we'd use a Massey 55 to power it. Later we used the Deutz.

It had been my great grandfather's at some point, then my grandfathers. When we sold the equipment, a neighbour bought it and fixed it up. He mounted a small engine (not sure what, I haven't seen it) to power it. Now he uses it for all his firewood. It has to be getting close to 100 years old.

We did have one almost just like that saw around here. Not sure if it's still around. I guess I should look to see & if still here, fix her up some day. I'm sure my Dad & Grandpa used to use it.
