The Amish around here use something like that to cut ice on the pond to fill ther ice house. If it is still setting by the pond today I will take a picture and post it.

I saw one in MN. that looked sort of like a concrete saw, only with a cord wood blade on it. After the winter carnival people shafted the man who cut and delivered the ice for one of Minnesota's ice castles. A company in Minnesota built a new version of the ice cutting saw.

Wish I had a picture of it, when I was a kid my father had a Model T Ford engine on metal runners running a buzz saw blade.

In the winter when the river was frozen, he and all the neighbors would saw ice into blocks on the river and pack the blocks in straw in a community "ice house" that went down about six feet below grade level. Everyone who helped put up the ice was free to partake of it. The ice usually lasted till towards the end of summer.
