DISSTON CHAINSAW

The   KB7-AY


 

This saw was built in 1946, during a highly competitve period of chainsaw design. Gasoline powered saws were in their infancy, and  thus heavy and cumbersome. Many saws were built as two man saws, not so much due to the weight, but because of the long bars that were built for big timber. Many saws could have bars longer than eight feet. The KB7, because of its twin cylinder engine with a long dimension before the bar mounting, necessitated the usage of two men to operate it.
