Used on Alaska type Chain Saw mills and adapted by builders for it’s light weight and easy assembly.
Helper handles are used both on Alaska type mills (allows a 2nd person to be guiding the mill and pushing it along) and for projects where some chainsaw “freehanding” is needed (such as cutting out a log archway that’s already installed), and a second person is needed to “follow the line” on the other side of the log.
Two styles available
SKU: G971 w/o roller. Use this on bars that have a sprocket nose/tip.
This sturdy aluminum handle bolts to the end of a standard saw bar for extra control and safety for the outboard end of the Alaskan mill. Requires the drilling of two holes for mounting.
SKU: G975 For use with the double end saw bars G742-3 thru G745-3
This sturdy aluminum handle incorporates an adjustable chain roller so chain tension can be adjusted at the Helper Handle end of the saw bar. Needed for milling with a double end saw bar.
You would use this helper handle on a bar designed to take a chainsaw at each end…however you’re running a saw at only one end and need the handle and roller for the opposing end.
