Default Gasoline Powered Circular Saw.

Just got this from a felow staker.. Thought it was pretty neat. Found out from a website that its from 1975. They stopped building them shortly after they started production, and started building weed eaters. The company is now under a different name and makes One man helicopters.

I'm not sure, but I think they used O/R engines they also had power drills and other hand tools with these little engines, they were 2 cycle high RPM, oh by the way my daughter has one of the little engines.

Thats the neatest thing since sliced bread. I've never seen anything like that before. Why wouldn't someone continue making that? I have an 18v DeWalt i use on job sites, but the battery is only good for few cuts before she starts to go.

Im guessing they dont make them because of oil splatter on the wood... but thats just a guess....

I cleared out the wife today! She came home from work to find an engine baking in the oven... again. You would think that after a while she would get used to it.

Many small power tools were made using O&R engines: half-inch drill, hedge trimmer, chain saw, circular saw, generator, weed whacker, and probably a lot I can't remember. One thing that spelled the end of the O&R powered tools was the introduction of rechargeable battery-powered tools, why bother keeping a noisy little 2-stroke engine running when all you had to do was plug a battery pack into a charger.

Got outbid on one of those circular saws at an auction 4 or 5 yeara ago.

However, I bet the O&R powered tools didn't have trouble holding a charge after they'd been used for six months!

Did she let you put a little butter on it before jamming it down your throat? (Or up......wherever?)?

Take care - Elden

Default Re: Gasoline Powered Circular Saw.

I have one of the green super sawII's and this is the first thing I have been able to find about it online. I even called a number that was supposed to be for the company but they gave me another number, then another, and I really never got any answers. Does anyone have any idea of what the current value of one of these saws in good working condition is? I have had a few people interested in it and I just have no idea what the thing is actually worth. Thanks everyone!
