Executive Summary

Our group was given a Pioneer 1074 chainsaw to dissect and analyze. This chainsaw was top of the line during it's day, however it is now 29 years old. Technology has not changed to much on chainsaws since then, but newer models have much more power. There are no specs online of the chainsaw that could be found.
