What type do you have? I have one mounted on our
Farmall H. They sure do bet a chain saw but have always
pay attention. They are probably one of the most dangerous
pieces to use. As far as we know dad started using it in
1950 when he bought the H and equipment to start farming.
My wife always says wood warms us twice.
Mine is a stationary saw. I have 2 round bailer belts laced together as I didn't want to have to spend $20 to cut one to size and have it relaced. The belt s is total 40ft from tractor pulley to Saw pulley. I have a 48 H Farmall, but I don't use it on the saw as my granddads 34 CC Case has higher rpm and more hp. I used the long belt for the first time last year and I think it somehow takes up the jerks one may get in the saw. It tends to run more smoother, with less wanting to run out on the end in a tough cut. The saw was my granddads wedding present to my dad in 1940. They didn't have a tractor then, but likely ran it off of a portable engine, as dad said they had had one once.
My Dad used one on our farm in Maine for several years, but would never let any of the kids near it. Dangerous as sin. He ran it off a tractor pulley to cut up slab wood we salvaged from a timber-cutting operation. Worked really well, but he switched to a chainsaw as soon as he could.
