    How about the saw used in Nick Offerman's American Ham? That is a a stand up comedy that is more than an hour long.

    Oddly enough there's some boyband in one of the Cinderella movies my daughter watches, looks like a stihl ms 250? Not sure would have to look at it again, weird that I know these things right?

    There's TV commercial featuring "loggers." One guy, up in the tree I think, is holding a chainsaw with an easy-tensioner.

    Ok the band on is called big pain ticket, the song is called twisted serenade it actually sounds pretty cool. Who else would think to use outdoor equipment as a instrument

    The chainsaw used in the Evil Dead and Army of Darkness flicks should be a Homelite XL12. It was extensively modified in the second film, with a stump arm attachment, a wooden starter lever etc.

    In My Name Is Bruce, a parody of Bruce Campbell's movie career, he is presented by Jeff, his superfan, with a chrome XL12 ("custom made") which sports a (very loose) red chain and a highly polished bar with BC5000 printed on it, apparently some kind of joke only film fans could get.

    Apparently the Homelite got in the first flick because it was the only chainsaw Sam Raimi could get for free and it was adopted as a permanent prop.

    Not strictly related, but I think the greatest piece of power equipment ever used in a film is the lawnmower in Peter Jackson's Braindead. I'll watch it again one of these evenings to try and figure out what it is. Such is the influence this website is having on my life.

    I didn't see Mr. Mom mentioned, Michael Keaton has a McCullough in his hand for home remodeling.

    Also one of the dumbest movies I ever saw, Sharknado! Giant husky?

    MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDER DOME

    "Two men enter one man leaves..." Mel Gibson chases Blaster with a saw, but it craps out.
