    Hi fellas.
    Talking to dad yesterday who tells me he has an old saw in his shed. After all these years of playing with chainsaws I can't believe he never told me. He believes it is the same as a Pioneer saw but made in Australia. Not sure if any of you guys would know? Everything seems to work but it needs new fuel lines and an air filter. I've never heard of the brand "Mobilco". I've got no idea as old saws aren't really my thing even though I have a couple. I can then add it to my sig too :)
    Pics are below and thanks for any help.

    Thanks mate. Pretty interesting. They were a fair bit of money in those days. I'll forward the link to my dad, he'll love it.

    Hey just out of interest, do you know what the one on eBay sold for? Dad has given me the saw but it would be nice to know if its actually worth anything :)
