    Default How to carry a chainsaw?

    Taking delivery of a JD 4310 next month... will need to clear brush and small trees so will need to carry a chainsaw. Any suggestions on the best way?

    I think I read here a while back that places that sell ATV's sometimes stock a holster for carrying a chainsaw. I believe someone here adapted that to clamp on to their tractor. Might be worth a look.

    I'll be looking for the same thing myself soon. Let me know if you come up with anything that works well for you.

    Getting a FEL? That's where I tote mine, the fuel, any tow rope/chain, etc. I've also used my rotary cutter to haul things around on when going to and fro but not while using the rotary cutter.

    You may consider a carry all for the 3pt hitch.

    Ditto on theBoman's reply. I put all of the things I need in the FEL and take it to where I need to cut. I also made a weight box with an extra space to put things like the chainsaw, ax, sax, etc in it but I have never used it.

    The best way is to have your help to carry it

    Yup. MontanaJack.com makes one for ATVs that with minimal tweaking would fit my ROPS.

    Jim,

    Ask Harv of TBN for info on this. He posted a thread sometime in the past and he had some dandy pics of a rack he built for his ROPS bar...it looked so good that I printed out the thread with the pics and I will try to emulate it in some way when I get my 4710.

    BTW, I saw Mark Brucker last Friday and mentioned your name. He thought highly of you and likewise sends his greetings....seems like real good man to deal with.

    <font color=blue>Ask Harv</font color=blue>

    Had to review <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.acknowledge.com/tractor/L2500DT/photos/RackOptions.jpg>this picture</A> myself to see if I included a chainsaw, and yep, there it was. I haven't actually carried one on the ROPS rack out in the field yet, but that's mostly 'cuz I haven't done much chainsawing lately. I expect to do a fair amount this year, so I'll see how it works then.
