Buzz Saw made from old combine"It frees up a tractor because it has its own engine and is always ready to go," says Roger Fisher, Spirit Lake, Iowa, about his combine buzz saw built out of parts from a 1960's Deere A-6 pull-type combine.
The saw rides on a 2-wheel axle from the combine. The frame was fashioned out of steel tubing taken from both the combine and an old WD 45 AC tractor. Power is provided by the combine's 45 hp engine that direct-drives the 24-in. blade through a clutch and flywheel, which allows him to engage and disengage the saw without turning off the engine. Fisher says that one of the best things about the saw is that there are no belts to wear out. The engine has electric start.
