I took a 2 x 6 and plunged cut into two inch side.  Bolted board to tractor then stuck saw in the hole.

There are some previous thread(s) with different ideas. I made a sandwich of two pieces of plywood and bolted to the ROPS.

I made a scabbard out of plywood and screwed it to my fender.  Pics are in my gallery.  I'm on my phone so I can't post them right now

That is an interesting assortment of tools and such hanging on there. Mostly used when getting logs outta the woods?

Is the bright yellow in the pic a chain cover that is new? or something else near the saw?

I recognize the winch  ;D. I miss that girl. Also, the hubs in my Gator are frrom YOUR old truck, too funny.

 Here is my solution, it is removable and can go on other equipment with the same box tube mounts as on the Gator. The grey in between the steel channel is stiff rubber. Knobs are off an old woodworking machine I scrapped.

The yellow chainsaw is the Partner Yellow of my trusty old F-55. 

My winch setup is something I threw together very quickly this winter to skid logs of my frozen beaver pond when I realized the standing dead maple were bone dry and prime for the woodstove.  As Sanford and Sons as it looks it did get the job done. 

That old Warn still pulls its weight thats for sure....

Thread revival
Prospecting for more ideas.
I've read through this thread and lean toward building a plywood scabbard fastened to my tractor ROPS or maybe behind the rear OE tiny toolbox where a safety sign might go. 
In looking at various online, made for sale saw holders, I see several and most are pricey. The Kolpin 20044 is  a clamp style that I like. Amazon review says that a vertical Stihl leaks out bar oil. 
I see concerns about bar strain from vibration carried on a tractor. How does that play out from long term users? 
Is that really more strain than what's created in regular use in a cut? I saw one version made for use inside a PU truck bed that holds the saw horizontal within nylon U channels for the bar/chain.

Just for giggles, check out the tool that Madsens has for a saw holder. It might give you some ideas & maybe not. Only way to know is to look.
Trying harder everyday.

I attach mine to the FEL mounts. I remove my loader during the winter when I use the saws. Perfect for my use. Out of the way and well protected. One for each side.

Well I had the same issue a while back and made my own for 2 reasons: A) I didn't see the cost as being worth it, and 2) I didn't like the bar pinch method with a clamp to hold the saw, I too felt this put a lot of load on the bar. SO I made one up that lets the felling teeth take the weight of the saw. I had a little thread on it a few years back: https://forestryforum.com/board/index.php?topic=104840.msg1630873#top
 It's still working just fine. I don't have any leakage issue and the saw lives their 90% of the time. My 372 leaks oil no matter what position it is in, but I only pull that saw out when I need it. My 50cc never leaks a drop.
 I'd rather build than buy anytime I can.

There are some great DIY ideas here. If you decide to go the other route and buy one, Sawhaul is a homegrown small business that makes a fine product. I haven't had any negative issues with the saw being stored in that position.

I end up moving my saw around a lot, from the workshop into the truck, from the truck to the sawmill shed, from the shed to the tree or from the shed to the four wheeler to the tree, and all the steps in reverse until the saw is back home in the workshop again. It was getting real tiresome dragging along a basket of supplies in addition to the saw + a gas can. I don't saw that much so a gallon lasts me a while. I built this small wooden platform around the base of the saw with a dedicated place for the gallon of fuel, quart of bar oil, chain file, scrench and an exta container of mix oil. The green bungee attaches the saw to the base snugly enough that I carry the whole works using the saw handle. It works great and keeps everything together in one trip, I always have everything I need at the tree where I'm working. In my situation I'm traveling to where I cut on the four wheeler, sometimes the truck, distances are relatively short so I'll go back and pick things up with the tractor, skid steer or forklift once I'm done cutting.
