    That's pretty cool.Never seen one like it before.I'd think you'd need extra length in the main compartment to slide the bar in the scabbard.Since its not flexible like softer plastic ones.

    Yeah, I thought that too, but the ad said he kept a 441 with a 24" bar in it, must be bigger than it looks in the photo.

    My back hurts just thinking about it.Over the years I've carried around enough boxes & tool totes made from 3/4"plywood to know its not much fun.

    I would line the saw side with some foam too keep it from scuffing up your saw....but that's just me, my wife has accused me of waxing mine.

    Yeah, I'd want a rear loading door for the saw on that box. That'd be a nice permanent box on the tongue of your firewood trailer, but definately NOT a practical carry-'round saw case....

    Nice tool box. :)
    I like Scotty's idea.
    Mounted permanent would make it more user friendly

    Ah, yes, the fishing pole, now you got my blood boiling, if it wasn't so cold I'd be out fiberglassing on the Whaler I'm restoring/pimping out!

    I am wishing for the lakes to freeze so I can load the saw go cut then ice fish on the way home. We could not do that last year with extended fall sorry excuse for a winter.

    That and whatever saw you put in it cannot weigh more than some of these rounds we deal with. Throw it in the truck or trailer, get the saw out when you get there. Put the saw back when done, take it off the truck/trailer when you get home. Now, I cannot wait to get a welder. So many projects for me to screw up with it, like a case for my MS660. Then again, the MS660 is fairing pretty well on the truck floorboards. The MS261 is probably jealous because it has to ride in the bed.

    I had a big weatherguard box mounted on my firewood trailer... it would fit the 660 with a 28", 7900 with a 25", 372 with a 20" and a dolmar 5100 with a 13" but spare chains, 36" bar, files, etc. you never know what you are going to run across and need to be prepared for everything....I'm working on building a dump trailer and going to have scabbards built into the side and loops to lock the handles down.

    Currently I have a truck box mounted on the front of my trailer. It holds everything and then some but I would rather have a 10ft bed than an 8ft so it is probably getting traded for a tongue mount box. I am thinking about welding one on the tongue with diamond plate steel on to it.

    Are you building the trailer yourself? That is one of the projects I want to try tackling once I get my welder. Was thinking about a 5x10 trailer and/or a 5x10 dump trailer. Just need to figure out where to start. Might get a set of plans from Northern Tool and see if they provide any decent guidance.

    I have an old 5x10 tilt trailer now that I use for wood, and I was also thinking about how to mount a cylinder on it to dump it too. It tilts exactly in the center, so a full balanced load would tip pretty easy I think.

    I have a tilt trailer that I would be willing to trade for a decent used saw? Its jot a dump trailer? Hut its a 12 ft tandem axle that tilts??

    Just an offer. I'll talk to you still soon.
