Thread: Chainsaw rack

  1. #1

    Default Chainsaw rack

    I wanted a chainsaw rack I could transfer between my snowmachine/ATV/tractor. Not a new idea by any means but it works well. It attaches to the old style Kolpin gun racks that had the 2 bolts to hold the case on. Made out of UHMW plastic.

    Thank you!! I think its going to work out real well for getting my firewood in.

    AGL4now-I would think about making them for others but since the dang UHMW is so expensive I doubt anybody would want to pay for one.

    Nice job, looks clean and tough.

    ARS may have some scraps in their discount bin. Never hurts to look.

    dont forget to put a safety strap on it... I lost one ( 571) for most a day 3 summers ago, due to it coming out of the mount.. also... I have broken the brake on three separate ( still 025, h 341, and the 571) occasions due to brush hitting it at the wrong moment... they take a beating there... i found inner tube cut into straps work the best to hold them on...

    KOPLIN also makes one that Clamps the bar... also a bad idea up here especially since my bars cost me over 300.00 each. and having the saw flex on them all day is NOT a keen idea over the long run...

    Where can a person buy a small piece of UHMW? I'm only looking for about a 12x12 inch piece for some innovative repairs.

    Thank you Dirtofak!

    AKfishon In the valley you can try CAC plastics. In town it appears that ARS has it. There is a plastics place on Old Seward around 70th that I have gotten stuff from before. I think it is Image plastics

    Vince I can easily add a strap/bungie to hold it down if needed. With the forward tipping of the case and long bar I sincerly hope it just won't pop out.
    Definitely will keep an eye on the brush. Thanks

    Great job and looks great. What are the fasteners, pop rivets, bolts???

    Yes they will just jump out on you, especially if you are going over woops or in brush. Then they can be hard to find in the snow.

    I used stainless bolts to put it together. It also has a drain hole on the front so you can wash out/blow out and wodd chips or debris that gets in it.

    Why not leave the end open? It will clean out easier, and you could fit a longer bar if needed.

    Good point Tenmm but my concern would be that you have a sharp saw blade down near your leg with no protection then.

    I am still wanting one made. And I still don't have the Bar size. Again I think your price quote was too low. People this is quality at a very fair price.

    I think you may have a small flaw or two in your theory.
