I was always pretty careful about position for that reason, but more concerned that the bar stayed up on that leather patch.

Longer bars have the power head away from ya more. I liked to palm the tip with my gloved hand.

Gripping the tip on the short bars is fine, myself I prefer to wrap my hand around the bar at 90 degrees at my elbow. As far positioning it depends on what powerhead and bar itís running for where it sits best for hiking without moving around too much.

It's about balance;where a long bar saw feels most comfortable to walk with. Your brain kinda tells ya where the 'fulcrum' should be.

Ya know, the problem with this thread is that nobody can actually answer the question in the title. (Maybe the guy in the pic if he's still alive.) Just not enough info in that pic for a difinative analysis.

But the concept could be fun. Maybe someone can post a partial/similar pic of a saw that they actually own and see how long it takes for someone to nail the actual brand and model?

@Spike60 that would be super fun actually, maybe even as a competition or something on the FF chainsaw board. We need something like this.

I've been looking at the pictures and thinking about it. The pictures were most likely taken during a winter in the early 80s in Arkansas. I remember Potlatch and the mill very well. The pictures were on a folder we sent paper samples to our customers.

At that time Potlatch was quite automated and the loggers should not have run a chainsaw much. They were cutting plantation pine. Trees were cut, skidded, delimbed, etc with machines. A marketing slogan back then was "We grow the working trees"

Unfortunately I never met that logger. He would be near 100 now if he's still with us.

Well, I'm not near 100 and I logged back then. It's true the harvesters have taken over loggin', but so far, they can't do steep inclines which still requires fallers and high-lead riggin'. And then again, not every gypo can afford a harvester.

Somebody mentioned that the guy looked like a fellow in HR for the company and that would lend more credence to my theory that he was 'put together' for the photo shoot. My educated guess is that he wasn't a logger at all.......

The blue color would indicate a Homelite. Too big a bar for a Super XL and probably newer than the C5 and C7 type saws. It may be something like a 923.
