This is the saw I use on the ferguson. I could not remember the name of it in another post. So here it is. Befa. It a great saw, and I like the safety of it. Works really good.

Any body ever see one like this. Can't find much information on it.

Never seen one like it.  Everything is enclosed.  Used the Ford saws a lot but they were about all open except for the blade.  Belt drive off the 90° pto pulley.  The one I had was a stationary 7 type where you anchored it down and drove it with the belt pulley off a tractor.  Can tell by the singing of the blade when the speed was right.  Lot of fun to file the teeth  and keep the points even.  I finally sold it as I found I could cut it faster with a lightweight chain saw than mess with setting up the buzz saw lifting the wood onto the table, etc.

I figured it would be easier than a chain saw on the back. But time will tell, on my back!

That is a nice design.  ...I'm only familiar with the old Ferguson/Dearborn saws, which were not enclosed like yours.

 

How is the saw driven, Noel? ....Shaft drive from the PTO, or belt drive, or hydraulic drive ?

Bruce, it's drivin from the pto, to a 90 degree gear box, then, the out put shaft of the gear box has a three V belt pulley on it that drives the shaft that the saw blade is on.
