New Way To Carry A Chainsaw
Keith Finley of Chanute, Kan., used to carry his chainsaw in his tractor bucket. Unfortunately, the saw bounced out of the bucket and wound up under his tractor tires.
“It was a birthday gift from my wife,” Finley says with a sheepish laugh. “I didn’t want to tell her about running over a $900 saw.”
Tractors don’t have any convenient places to carry a chainsaw, so Finley got to work on what would become the SawHaul. “I started out looking to buy something and couldn’t find anything like this,” he says.
After field testing prototypes for a few years, Finley landed on the SawHaul, which he calls the “first universal chainsaw carrier that can be mounted to any piece of farm machinery”.
Finley, CEO of GearHaul Universal Mounting Solutions, says he’s even mounted a SawHaul on a Harley Davidson and another on a snowmobile. However, the Tractor Kit, which mounts on a lift-arm, is their biggest seller.
The U-bolt goes around the back of the lift arm and attaches to a plate that has a durable plastic mounting unit designed to hold the saw. The saw is protected by a durable plastic scabbard that fits squarely into a slot on the mounting unit.
The SawHaul Complete Kit for ROPS and Manlifts can accommodate square or round tubing up to 2 1/4 in. wide.
UTVs and ATVs are also perfect for the SawHaul. “If it has a Rollbar, it’ll hold a SawHaul,” Finley says.
The SawHaul Kits also work with trenchers, backhoes and bulldozers. He also has SawHaul kits designed to attach to a Polaris Ranger® or General®.
“Not only is everything we sell made in America, but we even source the materials like our nuts and bolts directly from our local hardware store here in Kansas.
“We’ve even just come out with a new snap-on type of SawHaul kit,” Finley says.
The SawHaul Complete Kit for Tractors is $149.99. The Complete Kit for ROPS and Man Lifts retails for $139.99, while the Complete Kit for Polaris vehicles is $159.99. The SawHaul Complete Kit for bucket trucks is $149.99, and the SawHaul Base Kit with pro-grade scabbard is $149.99.
