Troy-Bilt chainsaws?
Original Message   Feb 15, 2005 12:53 pm
Anyone know who is building chainsaws under the Troy-Bilt name for MTD? Are they making their own?

Boy Joe, good question. I've searched and can't find any good ifo on it. Could it be that MTD makes them?

I would guess the Cub cadet saws are similar??

And McCulloch has been added to the MTD "pseudo-brand" list, are they all diff. colored Macs??

Thanks Lint,

Another of life's mysteries solved. I saw the saws on Troy-Bilt's web page and didn't put McColloch together with MTD in my head.

Lint,

Are you saying that you prefer cold, uncooked fish, wrapped in seeweed to a nice bowl of wonton and some fried rice?

Then you will go "full Yuppie" and probably ask for a slice of Tiramisu for dessert, right?!

Please say it ain't so Joe!
