Tractor-Mounted Chainsaw Carrier
"It's an easy way to haul chainsaws to the woods," says Dana Swick, about the chainsaw carrier he and his father Carlton built to mount on their tractor's drawbar.
  The carrier holds two chainsaws and includes a tiltable metal tray that can be used to hold log chains, gas, oil, or other supplies. The tray mounts on a hinged base, allowing it to be swung up out of the way for easy access to the 3-pt. hitch and drawbar. The entire unit can be removed by pulling one pin.
  "It's a simple idea but it really comes in handy," says Dana. "We had been carrying the saws in the loader bucket or on our wood wagon, but there were problems. The saws would bounce around in the bucket or on the wagon so we had to be careful. And they took up space so we couldn't haul as much wood."
  The carrier consists of a square wooden frame made from 2 by 4's, with two slots in it on top to hold the saws. The frame and tray both mount on an angle iron bracket that hooks up to the 3-pt.'s top link. The angle iron bracket is attached to a base made from sq. tubing that slips over the tractor drawbar.
