Seen some old familiar faces and met a lot of new ones. Thanks for all the fun and new saws to try out.  8) ;D

Didnt realize how strong some of those older stock poulan were  :o  4200 5200 etc. I also think some was surprised by the JD 800 = Echo 8000 that tested out to be quite the strong saw itself.

Thanks guys for the lime green show, just something about that color I like.

I had a good time too.

I saw a lot of Poulans in the flesh that I had only seen on the Internet. Some great running saws.

Saw some huge saws at the GTG in Homelite and MAC.

Some high speed saws too.

There were a lot of biscuits made Saturday.

Food was excellent.

I too saw some saws I had no idea were even in existance .

Poulan was never a big player in these parts and as such about the only thing ever seen were the smaller Craftsman types . It's a real eye opener to see the larger professional models in action .

Ha ,Ohio Gregg has enough cookies cut to heat the house half the winter . ;D

Say I think it was Mod Mark who had a 361 ?? maybe Poulan .It struck me as a copy or at least much akin to the design of an xl 12 Homelite . Turns out according to Mike Acres it is . This picture shows a Lombard 4.2 cubic inch of the same design .

Now the big question ,was it Homelite who had the design,Poulan or any other of the many companies that used similar designs .Could it have in fact been a third party who came up with the design and sold rights for reproduction of same to all the rest of them ? This is becoming a geat historical mystery .
