that looks extremely uncomfortable and perhaps a huge saw??



I was hoping for something more like this but mounted over the rear wheel rather than the front...



EDIT/PS: who mounts a Craftsman chainsaw on a Husqvarna bike???

there was actually a company who made a front chainsaw mount for bikes.. but they stopped making it.. there is a Husaberg 390 for sale in the classifieds with one mounted. I mounted my chainsaw to the back of my 570 to see how stable it would be, and I could easily get it to the trees that still block the south loop..but I wouldnt be able to get out to Pachaug before next Thursday. I have a General visiting on Wed and I need to try and make it look like I actually do some work before then or I may be retiring earlier than I think

It does look large, but I think that is because of the case. It also allows for carrying fuel and oil. I don't know the saw size, but it is a small back yard type saw. I did ride the bike down the street and it seemed okay. We'll see how it works out. At least the hunters should see me.

Get this one from Lowe's for around $13. Most handy tool ever. Just don't use it as machete as it tends to break where the rubber turns to plastic.

Hey it is a saw not a machete..

I have 2 thats why I brought it up seems like a lot to carry a chainsaw when these little suckers will cut any tree you would see..If the trees are that big make a little ramp...seriously....just find smaller limbs pile up and done...

I am sure Gary knows the one in the trails out by me..it is still there to this day and gives you a great challenge evertime ..most people go around...

Gary, That looks top heavy. You may want to look at some other options to transport that monster saw:

It's become standard practice to carry one of these in my tail bag with my tool roll..



probably weighs about the same as a tire iron or two. 8" blade, under half a pound and cuts through wood (especially live wood) surprisingly well. Trees and limbs larger than 6" are a bit much for this saw but it can handle a lot more than you would think if you use it right..

Trees down

Before I forget, can someone tell where about these downed trees are. I'd rather not ride the whole south loop with that HUGE thing. That's what my wife says, but really, it's not THAT big.
