Chainsaw on Wheels
"A wheel-mounted chainsaw is much safer and a whole lot easier to use," says Lloyd Twite, a Minot, N. Dak., farmer who built a 2-wheel carrier for his chainsaw that lets him cut up fallen logs from an upright position.
"Sawing up trees after you cut them down is the most difficult part of cutting wood. It's hard on your back and the saw can kick back, causing injury, or throw off wood chips," says Twite.
The carrier he built can be used for any kind of saw. It's made out of square steel tubing with a length of round pipe for a handle. The Y-shaped lower frame is fitted with 16-in. dia. rubber wheels spaced 30 in. apart. A clamp through the saw handle holds it in place. The cart can be used with either gas or electric saws. When Twite uses it with his Sears electric saw, he wires it through a "trigger" switch on the handle so he can start and stop without letting go of the handle. With a gas-powered saw, Twite can put a 1-gal. gas tank on the frame of the cart to increase the running time of the saw.
