Felling trees with one- and two-man saws, supplemented with axes, were the three
cutting technologies used until the 19th century. Steam, electric and internal combustion engines
were all adapted to a variety of tools to make woodcutting easier and more efficient. The tools
evolved and by the 1930's, a saw that we would recognize as a
chainsaw was developed in Germany. Chainsaws evolved from two-man units to lighter weight, one-man
operable units. Die cast aluminum and magnesium components further reduced weight and more
powerful direct drive engines speeded cutting in conjunction with development of the “chipper” type
chain still in use today.
THE SOLO STORY
In the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, Solo became a leader in small engine
products for tilling, spraying, pumping, and sawing. Innovative lightweight, direct drive power
saws, with single and twin cylinder engines led the industry.
Harvesting timber has an age-old importance for mankind in the "planting-caring- harvesting" cycle. This raw material from the sensible eco system is the foundation for many varied applications. Intensive and sustainable care are therefore preconditions for the economical use of forests - in future more than ever. For this varied and extensive work, SOLO offers reliable and professional technology that ensures comfortable working. SOLO developed 2-stroke engines that are kind to mankind and the environment with emissions that far exceed current legislation.

CHOOSING YOUR CHAIN SAW
Among the considerations when choosing your saw are: PRICE, SATISFACTION, SAFETY, EASY STARTING, FUEL ECONOMY/WEIGHT/POWER, CUTTING LENGTH/SPEED. ***** SAFETY - All Solo saws are equipped with safety devices which meet the American National Standards Institute...ANSI B 175 Standard. Emissions are carefully controlled, meeting both federal and state requirements! Reduced kickback chain, chain brakes, chain catchers, vibration isolation, large mufflers, fully adjustable oilers and ergonomic product design are things to look for when choosing a saw. ***** STARTING - Ease of starting is enhanced with electronic ignition systems that automatically retard and advance spark. Compression releases on model 636, 645, and 650 make cranking easier by releasing compression during the starting phase. ***** POWER/WEIGHT - Power-to-weight and fuel consumption ratios on Solo saws is excellent. Starting with weights under ten pounds supplying 2 hp and up to 7 hp for large professional saws. Each unit is designed and built to accommodate its recommended bar & chain length. Outstanding power is provided and smoothed by an integral vibration isolation system. Super fuel economy is achieved with Solo "four transfer port" technology. ***** CUTTING LENGTH/SPEED - Cutting length bars and chains are available from 14" to 43" according to saw configuration and need. Saws can generally fell trees double their cutting capacity. When choosing a saw, an important consideration is your height. Longer bar lengths reduce the amount of bending needed. Remember - most limbing and bucking is done with the tree on the ground rather than upright, hence the need to bend. You can expect a mid-range Solo with 18" bar and chain to cut through a 12" oak log in 14 seconds. ***** SATISFACTION - Satisfaction is our goal and we know that the safety, ergonomic, outstanding power, comfort and economy built into Solo products will not only satisfy you, but will make you pleased enough to recommend our products to others. 1,230 dealers offer nationwide support.
