I also have a "Mall" chainsaw, anyone heard of them. I remember it being used on the farm about 55 years ago. It hasn't run in many years, big old heavy thing. At one time it had a long bar with a handle on the tip for two man operation. I think it may be a four cycle engine rather than a 2 cycle.

Did Mall make a saw on which the bar and drive sheave could be rotated ninety degrees such that both the power head and the bar were horizontal? For clearing off a really big stump in comfort. A friend of mine claimed to have one of these in the late 70s. I never saw it but he was very proud of the old thing. I think it was a relic when he got it.

There are certain types that only use Homolites and Crapsman hand tools.

I'd hate to think what you'd call my little 12" Echo , Darwin...

But I tell ya, that little puppy saws wood!

Knowles Knows. I have the same exact saw and it is as good as any saw sold.
I sell chain saws and can have any I want at reduced pricing and I have that echo echo echo.

Ain't that Echo a sweetheart? So light, one-hand-operation is possible; so powerful she'll gnaw through anything she's put to as if it was a pound of butter!

That's the saw I bring when I'm camping alone...

But when couple-camping it's a different story. The vid illustrates my Husband's favored approach- whence my "hauling problem". I may just throw in the towel, get a flatbed trailer, and stick the Trillium on it piggyback-style, giving him all the room he needs!

Wonder how big it'll have to be to haul the backhoe, too...

Talking chainsaws as projectiles

I know you have seen persons juggling chainsaws but have you ever seen one used as a projectile?

Do you wear head, eye, ear and hand protection and chaps especially made for chain saw use along with steel towed footwear and never operate a chain saw alone?
Eye protection and steel toes yes...

I wear 'em all day every day for work anyway. Its to the point that I feel almost naked without boots.

A chain brake is good protection for the occasional kickback and makes starting a high compression saw a bit safer.

I bought the gloves after having a chain break and wrap around my wrist. My only saving grace was that I had some seriously heavy welding gloves on, due to packing the branches onto my trailer.

I was scared to take the glove off. It was cut wide open, I didn't have a scratch. I took it as a sign to buy the gear.
