White Chainsaw And Outboard Motor
It's not widely known that White Farm Equipment Co. sold chainsaws and Oliver Tractor sold outboard motors, but they did. I collect both of these unusual items.

    My White chainsaw was made in 1974. It has a 17-in. long bar and is painted the original White colors. It was actually made by Poulan but sold by White, which soon discontinued them. The one I have has never been used. I got it from an Indiana man who also has a chainsaw collection.

    As for the outboard motor, Oliver bought out the Chris Craft outboard motor division in 1954 and moved the company from Grand Rapids, Mich. to Battle Creek, Mich. They started production in 1955 and made the motors until 1959. Then in 1960 Perkins bought out the company and moved it to England.
