Clint I see them all the time for 3 point hook up. THEY are DANGEROUS in my opinion. Mo0st all the old folks had less than 10 digits that used them

the lever controles the hydraulics. I use the hydraulics to tip the table. After a hour or so of cutting the table gets heavy. It also heeps your hands and arms away from the blade.

I like the substantial table, on your saw. Much safer than the couple of inches of angle iron, that comes with the saw. Ed

Clint:

There have been a number of them on CL and :eBay: in the last few months including the Mott Cub Sawyer and Brookfield saws.

As far as the Buzz Saw being dangerous, well, all powered equipment is inherently dangerous. However a buzz saw operated properly is no more dangerous than a table saw, band saw or any other power tool. In the hands of someone who isn't trained to operate the machine it is one's worst nightmare or could be. However, if you follow all the normal safety procedures that should be common sense when operating something like a buzz saw, it is no more dangerous than any other tool used in any other trade.

I have been using these types of saws all of my life and I still have all ten digits -- course I have been in shops where some of the folks operating the saws have found ways to cut off digits even when properly designed guards and training courses have been in place.

I agree with Rudi If safely operated they are a useful tool. I have used them before and still can count to ten without taking off my shoes. They can be dangerous to use but than that's probably 90% human error. Here is my latest ferguson saw on the back of one on my fords.

Kirk, what is that white stuff under your tractor? Is it parked at the beach?

those worked great for forks. They are high carbon steel. I had some regular bar on it before but they bent pretty easy. The tool bars were from pieces and parts I had around at the time.

Yup, those rigs can be dangerous, but if you keep a healthy respect for them and pay attention to what you are doing you will be ok. We cut all of our firewood plus sharpening posts with this one for 20+ years, and no one ever got hurt. All the old timers I know that were missing digits lost them working around sawmills, not buzz saws. I think being around them constantly day in day out you start to take them for granted.
