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?????

Just had to add this, a Model 6 at the Roseboom, NY tractor show with a very rare attachment for you Mall collectors to drool over, this guy has vastly improved his display since last year. A 2 man Mercury and the double-bladed David Bradley in teh background.
