Indian Chain Saw
« on: August 11, 2015, 11:27:16 PM »
 

 

Any one have one of these.

I found this in a privet collection and might be able to buy it someday but not now.

I think it's a pretty cool saw.
How about you?

Cool saw. With the length of those cutters, you could still be sharpening them in 2045.

Do you think it's the same company as the Indian Motorcycle?

If so,  they probably had it made by someone else and put their name on it.

No relation to the motorcycle company.
From what I see the saw company started out as rebadged Clinton saws in the early 1950s manufactured near Chicago.
Went out of business around 1964.

Just to add Magnus from Chainsaw Collectors SE  says they were sold in Sweden as farmer grade saws.

I'll bet you can hear that one running, a few towns over. Like an F/A-18 with "burners" lit.

Just looking at that "muffler" makes my ears start to bleed.  :o

I think  that if my Forestry School had had one in 1958 I would have run  that  sucker too.
We had a Mall which weighed at least 150 pounds (tongue in cheek)and we hated it.
EDITED BY ADMIN
We also had 2 homelites a 6-24 WHICH weighed  6 POUNDS an had a 24 inch bar,which was a 2 position carbuerator and a 7-21 which weighed 21 pounds and had an all position carbuerator
\We liked these 2.I think the 6 and 7 designations were for HP

They used Chrysler motors.
