Log saws

Old machinery really amazes me,back in the early part of the 1900s gas engines were all the rage and in most cases were billed as labor saving devices but in the case of the log saw,I'm not convinced that that really was the case.I think the log saws were used mainly to section a tree after it was felled but a few of them were built with a blade that turned so that,I'm guessing anyway,they could be used to cut a tree.If you've ever seen one run they will cut a tree,there's no doubt about that but the time a labor needed to get it to the tree and set up to cut makes me wonder if it was worth it.
