    Does anyone know of a decent & reasonably priced cover/scabbard for a 36" bar and chain? Thanks

    Dealer may be your best bet on that one.

    +1 on the dealer.

    Stihl makes lightweight plastic scabbards that you snap together to make any length you need. Very reasonable on price as well.

    I couldnt find any that long last Spring either online or from any local Stihl/Husky dealers.So I made one from 1/4" Masonite & 3/8" white pine for the center edges. Weighs a couple pounds,but I'll be compost before it wears out.....

    Maybe make a trip to your local fire dept and see if they have any old hoses around. They last a long time.

    I used to cover the bar in old denim pant legs wrapped around 2-3 times with scrap 12 gauge wire.That's not very durable,plus they'd get covered up on the ground & lost in the trash
