Default Mall Chainsaws

Are there any web sites for mall chain saws? We have a 1951 two man saw that we got running but would like more information about the Mall Company. Thanks in advance.

Chain saw web sites are a bit scarse, but try contacting Mikevy@aol.com He collects 2 man saws, and has a lot of information on them.

The Mall factory was located in Crete Illinois USA around 1940s. The name changed to Remington Chain Saw in the 1950s. It changed to DESA Industries and I believe they make the Saws (electric only) in Bowling Green Kentucky USA. There still is a Desa Plant in Park Forest Illinois. This is near Crete. i don't think they make saws there anymore. I worked there in the 1970s and have a mall 2 man model 6. Morton1096

I just acquired the remains of one (just have the engine and handlebars). Did Mall make their own engines or were they outsourced by someone?????

Exclamation Re: Mall Chainsaws

Not too many parts around, unless you find a donor saw or someone is parting one out. I have a 7-H with only a few hours on it. Mall built their own engines and carbs. The carb on the 6 and 7 series had a zinc casting and used a cork float. The float may not stand up to todays alcholized fuel, so beware. I run the 7-H on high test fuel, and drain it and run it dry after every use. fuel/oil mix it 12:1 - 3/4 cup SAE 40 NON detergent oil to 1 gallon high test gas. 30 wt is too light for these engines. Take 1/2 gallon gas, add oil, shake can well. add second 1/2 gallon, and again shake well. If gas already in fuel tank, shake saw well before starting! Once warmed up, there will be virtually no smoke. Governed engines rated at 3400 RPM. Ungoverned - do not run at full throttle unless under load.

The phenolic covered coils for ignition are prone to failure due to decomposition of the phenolic plastic. They can be re-wound with modern materials, but that can be expensive. Even NOS coils can be bad in the box.
