Description

With hundreds of full-colour photographs and fascinating ephemera, combined with an authoritative text listing hundreds of chainsaw models from the 1800s to the present, Chainsaws carefully traces the evolutionary threads of countless pioneer devices--from six-hundred-pound steam-powered behemoths, to gas chainsaws mounted on wheeled carriages, to diesel chainsaws. The meticulous text examines Andreas Stihl's Black Forest experiments, Vancouver's booming WWII chainsaw industry and the postwar race to develop one-man saws, the rise and fall of Canada's proud Pioneer brand, and the late entry into the field of the centuries-old arms manufacturer Husqvarna. Recalling once-familiar brands such as Titan, Timberhog, Bluestreak, Hi-Baller, Hornet, Wasp, IEL, Partner, PM, Poulan, Dolmar, Danarm, Disston, Remington, Canadien, Lombard, Mall, McCulloch, Shade, Solo, Be-Bo and Jo-Bu among others, author David Lee worked together with some of the world's leading chainsaw history experts to create this tribute to one of humanity's most labour-saving inventions.

Lee concludes this new paperback edition with a note on recent advances in chainsaw technology--notably the cordless electric chainsaw, powered by a lithium-ion battery--bringing readers up to date on today's lightweight modern machine. Chainsaws is a handsome gift book and an indispensable reference for anybody with an interest in chainsaws or technology.
