A New Use For Your Old Chainsaw

by Eric Anastasi, Eastern Regional Manager
Once again I was surfing around the web on some of my favorite sites and found something that I thought I should share. Now- I have a chain saw and I have a motorcycle but I do not have one of these. Although depending how long this winter is, I may come spring.

Here is a bit about this machine.
The heart of the combined power plant is the central drive belt casing of aluminum construction. As well as encasing the eleven belts used to couple up the individual engines, it also houses the exhaust ducts for the cooling air. Twelve engines are mounted in two rows of six on either side of the drive belt casing. Each engine is held in place by means of two threaded studs that normally serve to secure the guide bar to the chainsaw power head. The individual motors are coupled together in sets of three by means of a double-sided drive belt, making up eight modules in all. The individual engines are not rigidly connected; instead they deliver their torque through the centrifugal clutch that is a standard feature of every chainsaw.

Maybe I can leave hints around the house for my fiancee to find...after all, Christmas is coming....
