Recommended Posts

yet again my tutor at college has landed me with a real head scratcher. he wants to know the design and development of the top handled chainsaw over the last 20 years and i cant seem to find any relevant information on it. any suggestions for sites to go on or any information would be greatly appreciated.

the last 20 years of top-handle chainsaws is easy... its basically the 200t!

 

since its introduction (as the 020t) in the early-mid 90's it has dominated. before that stihl had the fugly 009/010/011/015 series of nearly top-handle saws... before that there was the 020 (and later 020av) introduced in 1971 it was a true tophandle, similar in displacement and layout to to a 200t and not a million miles away in weight. old reed valve engines tho.... doughy

 

 

the first lightweight top-handle saws used in arb tho... probably poulan made in the late 60's early 70's, model numbers excape me.

 

 

places to get info; the chainsaw forum at http://www.arboristsite.com
