It is a Oliver, it spent it's life working in a junk yard. On the back it has a factor three point weight that has a factor tool box on top and the owner set it up to carry torch set up with a hose reel. All so the owner took off the engine cover Panels when it was new because they restricted access to the engine but the best part is they were saved all these years and are back on it now as shiny as the day it was made.

Any idea about the garden tractor in the 3rd pic? Was it a factory unit or something home made?

Yeah, Doug, Me too! Gilson with steering?  Kinda looks homemade, cept that front axle. Has the usual Ford rear-end, can't tell much about it just one picture. Also have never seen  a Jacobsen G10 before I guess. That must be a plastic hood?   First time for me to see one like that.  ON the hit and miss saw, was wondering what part moves  to push wood into the blade? Blade move? Seems would be heavy to push back and forth was thinking. Wonder if that had enough speed and power set-up like that?

That is a hand powered drag saw for cutting firewood. They were made to fold up so you could carry it to the woods and then set it up. Can't remember the name off the top of my head and I've got one.   :wallbanging:

 

 

 

Hopefully this link will take you to some search results I found on Ebay. For some reason this doesn't sound like the name on mine but it has been awhile since I've looked at it. I think the price on the complete one is on the optimistic side.  http://www.ebay.com/...olding drag saw

He doesn't have it  set right. See the black arm hanging down back by the handle? that has a roller on the end that is supposed to ride on top of the blade and have spring pressure to make it cut into the wood. With that and a sharp blade they will cut fairly fast. They claimed it would cut faster than 2, 2 man crosscuts.
