Looks like an intermediate disc, the conversion looks a lot like what Fabtek did to the 490ís.

  The stroke could be adjusted with the bumper stops from like 94 to 106".  We had white paint marks on the beam @ 2' intervals to cut 10s and 12s.  Intermittent saw.  It only ran when the button was pushed.  There used to be a following for them to cut northern white cedar cabin logs because there are no feed roller marks on the wood.  It would bunch too but multiple stems wouldn't always stroke evenly cutting to length. There's a Timbco that shows up on the Yooper Craigs List now and again with a Slingshot Head.
  I've heard the EX 150 Hitachi and the 490 JD are the same machine except the Hitachi uses an Isuzu engine and the paint color.
