That is quite some collection of saws you have there,

I recognise in the foreground of picture four a Danarm / Consolidated Pnuematic air saw, have you had this saw running on air? The pair that we had at work were powerful beasts but fell foul of elf and safety regs with no chain brakes etc so ended up in a local saw collection along with their hand books, spare parts also became a problem if I remember correctly.

The claim was that these saws could be safely used under water but I never saw that put to the test!

Congrats on a truly impressive collection of British made Chainsaws etc. and welcome. I confess I did not know of the make, but just checked out the Company history and now aware. Well done and thanks for sharing

First of all ,good to see you back here Richard (Anglo Traction) .

Great collection of chain saws, are they all working.?

only three dont run as the coils have separated but they are only for display and i do use them every now and then so if they dont run they will not get me as they are very heavy and quite unpredictable with no safety features    ;)   all the best    danarmdave

Unfortunately Dave (the owner of all these saws) died last year and they are all up for auction through Pentland Livestock on 27th May.  www.pentlandlivestock.co.uk
