@sawmandave  whats the story on  the hunt and  find?

Is this info right? The first of the Poulan name came in about 1912 under the name Poulan Saw Co.  It wasn't until 1946 that they produced their first "Power Saw", the 2-man chainsaw 2400 which was a bow saw. It was the same engine Lombard used in their 2-man GS-6 and GS-7 models which were made from 1943-1945. The first 500 engines were made by Homelite 24X1 and then switched to the 24X2 engine.

Very interesting, I did not know that Homelite made their engines early on.  Beautiful old sand cast components.  Wondering if they are aluminum or magnesium?

As a side note; When I was a high school student back in the 70's, we were taught aluminum sand casting in metal shop class.  I doubt ANY high school in the USA teaches this or the machines nowadays?

Copy paste from video = This was filmed circa 1950 in Shreveport, Louisiana, and it showcases the Poulan 2400.   Some of the people in the video are Harry and Fletcher Poulan.  THERE IS NO SOUNDTRACK to this film.
