Where Do They All Come From?

Recommended Posts

That's what my wife asks. I told her it would take too long to explain how I got a chainsaw from Ottawa Quebec and Missoula Montana the same day and two ,ore arrive the next day from Fremont New Hampshire and upstate New York. I have three Canadian saws, two made for Homelite by Terry Industries of Pointe Claire Quebec and a Pioneer saw  from Peterborough Ontario. The Homelite-Terry XL-76 is a 58cc automatic oiler that is fairly hard to find, but the other Terry saw, the VI Super Mini SL is even harder to find, especially early models like this one with the newly developed chain brake. I acquired a second one year Homelite XL-850 (82cc) a week or two ago without a bar and chain and found a NOS bar and chain cheap. My two recent arrivals are a 1966 Homelite XL-800 another 82cc auto oiler that is extremely difficult to find, and the other one is a HUGE 115cc Homelite 2000-P Automatic with a 28" roller nose bar. I'm looking for a few 54cc XL-100 series auto oiler saws and a couple more 115cc saws, then I might have my Homelite collection wrapped up

My friend has some old Homelite saws and I know one of them is #1 real old #2 it's big. I even want to say it has a 36" bar and it screams when it wants to run. Another thing he has is a hydraulic driven two man chainsaw  . I think it's a Von Ruden . It's all self contained as one unit . There's a pump that hooks up to a pto and tank that sits on the ground or mounted. Two hoses go to the saw . The teeth on the saw if I remember correctly are like a 1/2" wide and the bar is 48" . Definitely something you'd not want to getaway from you :blink: . I found a blurry pic of one in use and a smaller saw with tank pictured .

Well Alain! Impressive collection, the old ploy of buying a lot of shelving initially worked ok then ! ..........

Give's you the ready made excuse when your Wife asks why so many Chainsaws ? .....is that you have to fill all the shelves with them !! :D.........

The only downside I can see (if there is one) is that you will have absolutely no excuse to avoid cutting up the Logs by saying you don't have a serviceable Chainsaw! 

There's still some gaps to fill on those shelves though  :thumbs:.

Thanks, I have a chainsaw project waiting as we speak in the form of a large Maple tree the tornado knocked down, just beside our home. I'm waiting for it to dry a little and the weather to cool. I'll have those shelves filled before long, lol
