Wow where did you ever find one in that good of shape?!

 

 

If you dont mind can you take a straight on picture of the swifty decal thats intact and give me an OD measurement so I can catalog it in my decal folder in case we ever have to get these reproduced.

OK, nice saw, but "Swifty"?  That a Bolen's brand then?  Must have been ONE LONG box with the blade on there, ha!

Will do

A heavy package with a really nice saw inside. Please give us a little background please. Congratulations on such a fantastic find.

Well have tried on several Bolens saws over the years on ebay only to get a last second "sniped", prevailed on this one. It is clean ,was well taken care of , sorry I have no history about it other than the seller and the saw are from Wisconsin. Thank you.

Very nice! Does it run?

Thank you, it would run on prime, put a kit in the Tillotson carb it's running like a scalded dog now 😂

What years were they made?

1961-62, 4.7 c.u. 77cc powerhead 19.5 lbs. ( heavy SOB, but very old school cool!)
