Picked up this ole Remmie Super 754G Military a week ago.
Not in to bad of shape. Even runs. It was running way rich
when i got it so a little carb tweak and it runs perfect. These
geardrive Remmies have some grunt. I was really surprised
as to how hard you can lean on it.

Those gear-drive Remingtons were widely used by Combat Engineers in Vietnam. My grandpa had many stories about a miserable, hot, humid day in the SE Asian jungle with one of those.

Wish I had a Remington, they are some of the best looking saws ever made. Well, if you ignore the factory paint jobs. :D
Ya, And if you are ever able to lay yer eye's on
one of the larger Remingtons like a Super 990
You will really appreciate them.

nice... I have been adding a few older saws to the collection to have around the shop for customers to look at when I am fixing on their saw or grinding their chain. Had a shot at one of these a while back and didn't take the plunge on it. Probably should have, b/c they do have really nice lines...

Nice saw Lee! :thumbsup:

I was always under the impression that the Super 880 and 990 were both the pinnacle of Remingtons.

Oh I agree Jacob, but if they were both sitting side by side and you could only take one.............................:ugh:

Always wondered is it because there are not that many out there, or whoever has them is keeping them, that you don't see many of them.
