    This inspired me.
    Last several wheeling trips, my chainsaw was put to use several times. Maybe it's time to make it more accessible.
    Here's what I was thinking. No clue how to secure it yet.

    What about a giant quick fist? You could make a bracket that bolts to the propane tank and holds a giant quick fist. Then just secure it right under the handle.

    edit: and you could weld a base that fits perfectly in the jerry can holder, and has a spot for the bottom of the propane tank to rest, as well as the bottom of the chain saw. That coupled with a quick fist or lashing strap and you'd be set

    Looks to be about the size of a fire extinguisher and I’m pretty sure hey make them for that.

    Yep exactly! I edited my last post to expand upon the idea.

    Some good ideas guys. Keep ‘em coming.

    Main objectives:

    Propane tank will be immovable and secured with a SS T-clamp.

    Chainsaw needs to be easily accessible: grab and go and return back to mount as quickly as possible. Quik Fist or Fire extinguisher quick release are things to consider.

    I like the idea of a shared base plate inside the jerry can holder.

    Another, similar option is to build a base but have it come up kinda high. That way the base will do most of the holding. Then up top you can use a heavy duty bungee cord at a 45 degree angle to both hold it down as well as pull it backwards. Seems like it'd be secure in my mind.

    Whoa. That looks very secure and very doable.

    And really quick access. I'm all about easy access for trail things because there's no time to be dicking around with stuff. That's why I want the plano case for straps because it's much easier to access than my drawer while out on the trail.

    edit: and maybe you could fit a bottle of bar oil in there too!

    I like the idea. Kind of like a “holster” for the chainsaw.

    Quick access is always cool when you’re wheeling with a group. As we get more experience with groups on technical trails, we learn ways of getting out of stucks as quickly as possible to minimize downtime and get the group moving.

    Amateur you bring meats in vacuum sealed bags, put it in tupperware with the O-rings around the lid, or pre-cook it maybe 60-75% and put it in good sealed tupperware. I precook and prep most everything when I go camping and what not it make it that much faster to get food on the table.

    You're gonna enjoy using that. I used it for my hood struts the other day. 3/16" steel rivets and I only needed 1.5 cranks to pop them. You have to open the arms all the way to get the rivet in the hole. Just an FYI.
