Two-person chainsaw

Reed-Prentice “Timberhog B” model two-person chainsaw used by members of the Minnesota Forestry Service during the 1940s. The air-cooled, single-piston, two-cycle engine; fuel tank; chain oiling tank; automatic clutch assembly and drive gears all comprise one box-shaped unit. A metal “cap” and tubular handle covers the end of the cutter bar and is a “Helper’s End Assembly” so that two people facing each other can operate the saw.

For details, view the chainsaw in our online collections database.
