Blitz 501
« on: November 07, 2012, 04:31:37 am »
Hi all,
I have a Blitz 501 Chainsaw that I bought about 30 years ago,
Its been a brilliant saw but now has a worn main chain drive sprocket.
I am having trouble getting any info on the saw, and my Google search bought up this site.
If anyone has any idea if these chainsaws are still being made, and where i may be able to get parts
It would be a great help.
Thanks
Ian

  If you look at acres site Blitz isnt listed as a saw maker, so probably are made by someone else and renamed.  Just a WAG.

To look at OLYMPYK saws listed on acres site.
