More like a battleship...look at the raise/lower/tilt on the blade. Looks like a captains wheel . That is a heck of a saw.

It didn't sink the boat from Germany, so I would say it was mobile. If any of you guys are interested I'll go look at it for yah, I could probably go pick it up and bring it here to the shop, I have a forklift here......

I think it would take a tank to move it.

I agree with Darren. I wonder if the rudder doubles as the splitter?
