Seen a few Hargan saws mostly BSA powered, bloody dangerous things they were. My dad was using one in the forest near Dorrigo, NSW in the late 1940's when the blade hit something in the log and a piece of the blade flew off and put a hole in his brand new hat only just missing his scalp. He wouldn't use one again and went to work in the timber mill instead of the forest.

Ooh lovely, thread divergence.....

I spent a year in the 1970s working on horticultural machines. My favourites were the ones with 500cc sv Dennis engines - Howard Gem, Allen Scythe etc. Great machines.

Looking at pictures of that hideous device why did no one think to put a guard over that blade?

Ian, my vice is Wheelhorse tractors, want a BSA powered Ransomes mower?
