Not a lot of safety features there, you could loose a limb pretty quick.

Is this thing looks homemade to me, was this actually a factory option?

I think it would be perfect for a Mad Max Tractor.

I have no idea if that is a factory attachment or not. I have seen a few buzz saws though and have never really seen much of anything on them for safety features. I'm not sure what you could put on one to make it safer. That is likely why you don't see them being made any more.

I have a saw that looks like that one. I do believe it's simplicity.

I wonder if all the pieces needed to run it are there . My DB has a special engine pulley and jack-shaft that were part of the attachment .

I have used a few different Buzz Saws and owned one at one time.  They all cut on the right side of the table.  This one cuts on the left.  No table return spring either so don't think it is all there.  Definitely need a blade guard.  Probably a stationary type saw that stakes to the ground and used a belt pulley on the tractor to drive the saw.  That is the way mine was set up and worked good with a sharp blade.

I think safety has taken the place of common sense.
