I recently aquired a pioneer chain saw model 1200. I would like a little info on them. Where they a good saw and did anyone that used them like or dislike them. I know it was made in Canada. I had to fix the carb but seems to run ok now. Thanks in advance. Uncletom

Tom,

I have an old Pioneer saw from 1975. I believe it is called a "Farmboss II" or "Farmhand" I''m not sure. Any clue where to find info on the chain drive sprocket and what type of chain it takes. The bar says "058". Not sure what type of chain itis though "S" , "D" ...not sure.

Tom,

My dad had a Pioneer when I was a little boy, the first chainsaw I ever used. I was pretty young, so I can't say much about the quality, one way or the other. I hadn't heard of those things in years.

Anyway, here's a tid bit I cut from a website, I didn't know this about Pioneer:

"OMC Corporation once made Evinrude and Johnson outboard motors, Lawnboy lawnmowers, and Pioneer chain saws. Toro bought Lawnboy, and the Swedish Electrolux complex acquired Pioneer and merged it with Partner and Poulan. The latest saws are made in the U.S. and sold under the Poulan brand."
