Packing a chainsaw

I did find an old thread about this, but there was only one response that applied to what I'm doing.

I ride alone. One horse. My own trails. Sometimes a small tree is down and then I try to remember to pack my axe and bowsaw on the next ride to look after it. Now I have a small chainsaw; only a 14" bar but 42 CC: just right for my needs.

I want to take the chainsaw with me, but not gas and oil. Just the saw. Ideas how to put this behind my saddle somehow? I don't want to use saddlebags. Just the saw (with a chain guard of course).

If anyone has done this and has pictures, I'd love to see your setup!

Ok I will try and explain
You hook the chainsaw handle to your horn, you put the blade part under your sturrip fender. Then put another tie from your horn to the blade base to help balance.
Not sure if that's the easiest way to explain or makes sense I found a pic on google under images when searching for packing a chainsaw on a saddle horse.
Hope this helps!

Ah, nice and since my saw is so little it shouldn't interfere much that way. MDH also suggested a low riding backpack for me. Now I have some ideas I can fiddle with it and see where I go from here.

SouthernTrails - did you just google that? Or do you know if the rig was homemade or purchased?

LOL - ya, that's an interesting get up alright. I think I'd turn the saw around at least :)

I found the image you first posted on skookumhorse.com. I didn't know about that site. Cool stuff. That rig you posted is $220! Yikes! I think I'll see what I can sew up myself :)

My husband used to just use baler twine rigged out. Said he would ride for hours in the back country like that.

Its not the answer you are looking for. But I just take an extra horse and pannier and put the saw on one side and lunch and gas/oil on the opposite side.

I've got too many horses that all need some exercise. So I'm looking for an excuse to take them out.
