Nice work roundhouse. Ive turned my quad into as much of a service truck and food plot tractor as possible too. 
























Best i got for fueling machines.  I dont put many hours on. 









I made the tractor attachment into the junk carrier.  Wouldnt normally carry 2 big saws but that day i was attempting some fancy felling that i expected to get pinched on.

Great responses! For the record, the Madsens catalog listing is for a product called- "Byte Tyte" which is an all alu blade holder which has a blade clamp made on. 
In the older thread link I kind of like the g_man from VT plywood scabbard. That's pretty much what I had in my minds eye. 
I carry my saws in our UTV Mule by simply sitting them in the back but I have to compete with my wife for the Mule my own job time.

Similar to other posts, I used two pieces of plywood with a 1/2" piece around edge to create a pocket.  Painted it black and mounted on a piece of angle iron bolted to the winch.  Sits well, is handy to grab and doesn't fall out.

I looked at a couple of the ones you can buy, but only took a few minute to make out of scrapes just laying around.

You guys can do what you want. But there is no way I would have a saw on my 3 pt winch. I suppose if you never have to back up with a twitch all will be fine. I've had a few too many logs on my mine and bent one of the arms on the cage on my winch. I get in more trouble twitching 6 inch firewood than twitching a 3 foot log.

Agree. I've bumped the side of my winch by making a sharp corner. No back-up necessary. I ended up welding a protection plate because the hooks on the side that hold my chockers kept getting bent.

What was wrong with the old way of a board with a few bar holes bored in that doubled as a spring board in the truck.

Wed take a 2x6 or 2x8 and mount it across the bed rails in the crummy then take the saw and bore at a slight angle so it was easy to slide in and out.

I built one out of some scrap PT a few years ago. Slides on and off with no mounting hardware, but holds on enough to even ride on the trailer that way. Nice to have tools and fuel/oil right there and saw is protected being inboard of the loader arms. It makes it a little cumbersome to get on and off but I can deal with that.

You make a good point, but I'm not hauling firewood or even skidding out saw logs over distance.  I use the winch only to get logs out to where I can pick them up with the forks and bring to the mill or load on a trailer for longer trips to the mill. 
As this is a hobby mill, selective logs and keeping dirt off them is key for me.  So my risk of cracking a saw mounted on the winch is minimized to the to the point of having the saw handy at hand in the back is far greater probable gain in my type of use.

I carry two saws in scabbards made from 1/2" CDX and barrel bolts. One is behind the loader mount tower where it dosen't stick out or impede getting into the seat. The other is behind the seat above the 3ph mounted on the tool box shelf.

I need one of these for my atv. I’m thinking I’ll clamp down a 2x6 and try to bore cut straight into the end grain. Maybe probably could crocked I guess lol gonna try it anyway. Would be 1 minute
hole for a bungee to strap to hold the saw from sliding out.

Gordon -

What are the barrel bolts for? (I cant seem to see them in the picture.)

Also: I like the real toolbox on your tractor. I thought it was against the rules to have a box larger than what is needed to hold a screwdriver, a crescent wrench, and a spare hitch pin.

A ha! makes a lot more sense now. I could not figure out how you were using a barrel bolt on your holder. I thought perhaps you had rigged something to make the holder easily removable in case it was in the way for some operations.
