COMMENTS:
The Indian engine was the same as used in their motorcycle of the same year. The DOW saw was used mainly in Northern California but one was brought to Franklin River on Vancouver Isalnd for testing in 1936 at the Logging operations of Bloedel's and operated by the Brown brothers. The unit sold for U.S. $990.00 in 1933.
