Lee,

   I don't know what it is but I saw saw that looked a lot like that all over southern Norway. The folks hooked them up to the tractor PTO and cut firewood with them. Over there they mostly cut small (4-6 inch diameter Birch) into approximately 1' lengths. They usually had a roller system they used to move the firewood and wood to palletize and shrink wrap it for sale or use.

Buzz Saw. They were common all over the deep south back in the late 40's and 50's. Pics in Mr. Tom's gallery. No belt guards on most of them. The blade could be swiveled to horizontal for felling, which didn't work very well. If the blade pinched in the log, Dang things would kick like a mule. They were replaced by chain saws, some of which required 2 men...Pull rope start, but most of the time, the rope got lost and pulling the belts sorta worked. I knew more than one logger who lost fingers getting them hung in the belt/pulley.

We've got one on the farm that is rough, but still has engine and some paint.  May be a bit smaller and doesn't have a fancy belt guard like that one.   ;D

I remember the ads in the 50's and early 60's about every garden tractor company sold a saw attachment.  They claimed you could saw a winters worth of firewood with ease.

When I was a kid(a long, long time ago), our next door neighbor was a logger and he had several of those.  They called them cordwood saws.  They used them for bucking logs and maybe some light felling.
