It's a "modified" IHC cart with a slide table, do you want to sell?

DJ- It sure looks like a Galloway cart to me. The castings that the rails bolt to are one telltale sign. With the frame rails bolting to the sides of those castings, it doesn't give a guy much of a chance to bolt any other brand of engine on the cart because the frame rails are at a fixed width. Take a picture of the front of the cart in a "head on" shot so that these guys can CLEARLY see that casting between the frame rails, and they will probably change their responses.

DJ: They are Galloway saw rig trucks. There are two different style of wheels for these. I think the one in your picture is of the older type. - Ted

That is a 7 1/2 Galloway saw, identical to mine. Post the picture of mine if you can d.j.? I think that the flywheel is an add-on? Bill

Sure looks like a Galloway rig to me. For some reason the front end frame casting is pushed in several inches. I've not seen one that isn't bolted to the very end. Here are 2 scans showing the parts of the Galloway truck & saw attachment. Hope this helps.

Here's my new style. I believe a Masterpiece would ride on top.

What throws me off is that yours has an intertia wheel on the saw arbor.

Galloways used angle iron frame rails, not channel like the Herc's.

Look for p/n's on bolsters..possibly names rolled into the I-Beams

Here's my new style:

http://community.webshots.com/photo/...39077051bPdqvL Ignore the flywheels.

The front casting is turned 180 degrees from what it should be, assembled on a Monday? I have seen illustrations of Galloway saws with the flywheel outboard of the drive pulley.

Martin could be right. Now that I see the closeups it doesn't look like a Galloway cart. I'm just about certain about the saw table being Galloway though.

This saw j.d. has is the same as the one I was asking about a couple weeks ago. The big Galloway sits with it's head toward the tongue, and it turns in conventional rotation. Both of my end brackets are recessed. Frame rails are about 14 1/4 wide. A couple brackets and a short piece of channel make a third rail at the rear above the axle, on the blade side. The castings that join the axle to the frame at the rear are different side for side, one has to be shorter to clear the saw attachment. The parts look just like the ones in J's parts breakdown. There is no doubt in the barren wasteland that is my mind that mine is all Galloway, and it looks just like d.j.'s. Now, having said that, I have not mounted the engine yet, but the four holes are a perfect match. You guys did panic me enough to go out and look, and I got a picture of my kit, if one of you guys can post it. One of these nights I will chain up the dogs and get some help to throw it together. Thanks Bill
