I recently bought one of those chainsaw bags, an axe cover and they made a 'spade/shovel' end cover so the sharp spade end is covered. The chainsaw bag is very well made. I empty the chain oil reservoir back into the bottle before transport to limit the oil leakage.

As far as chains go, i only take a small stihl 170 with me camping to save space and the chains are only about $20ea so if the file has no luck (i use a manual file) a new chain goes on.

My saw is in the aluminum tool box with fuel, chains and all the paraphernalia to make it happen. Its just tied onto the roof. Bar and chain are taken off for smaller space and to ensure I comply with NP expectation for "no chainsaws" rules
Every where I go I bring pleasure. Sometimes it's when I arrive... but usually its when I leave!

Decided to improve my chainsaw storage, and make it a little bit more travel friendly.  I bought one of these chainsaw bags from Infront Camping Gear.  http://www.infrontcampinggear.com.au/prod2052.htm

When the bag turned up and I loaded my chainsaw and other associated bit and pieces in, I didn't really like the way when you picked it up everything sagged together.  I cut two pieces of  6mm Ply and sandwiched the canvas bottom of the bag between the two pieces, added some rubber feet, and now everything stays where you put it.  I'll probably add a tie down strap over the saw later on, but I'll give it a bit of a test run first to see how it goes.

If I read every post made here I my know the reasoning behind take your bar off for travelling. If it is a space issue I understand but otherwise I don't. As a member of the SES our chainsaws are always intact, the ones in our smaller vehicle's may not be used for months and our rescue vehicle I was with the service for a year before I even knew where it was in that one.

Found a great bag for the big saw. I have a canvas one for the smaller saw but this is great for the longer bar

Retiring the large Husky and will now take a Milwaukee battery saw and 2 x 12amp batteries plus charger. A lot lighter, quieter and powerful enough for camping.  Will get a heavy duty canvas bag made up once I return from my next camp trip in 5 days.  Probably get Sarahs canvas to make me one. :cheers:
