In this article, we talk about the best chainsaw mounts for dirt bikes

The first question is how do you carry a chainsaw on your dirt bike?

Alright, so you ended up here because you are interested in carrying a chainsaw while you are out riding singletrack. A chainsaw mount typically mounts to the front of your dirt bike where your number plate is and straps onto your forks.

There are a few solid options that allow you to carry a chainsaw into the backcountry for clearing out those chest-high logs that cannot be crossed.

Spring trail cleanup!

What type of chainsaw works best for carrying on your dirt bike?

An arborist chainsaw….

  • Stihl
  • Echo
  • Husqvarna
  • Ryobi
  • Dewalt

An arborist chainsaw is a more compact, lighter saw that still packs a pretty good punch in order to cut through some of the bigger logs you encounter. The Echo Arborist chainsaws are a favorite among the trail cutting crews.

Don’t forget to pack extra gas and bar oil for your chainsaw!

Finally, there are also some pretty good battery-powered chainsaws that work well.

No matter what your trail system is like or where you ride being able to keep your trails clean and clear of brush and fallen trees allows a better single track or riding experience. 

Every spring once the trails are not wet we head out into the mountains to start clearing all the trees that fell during the winter storms.

We also use our chainsaw mounts to help us open up new trails on our cabin property.

Having a chainsaw makes for quick work versus a standard handsaw like the silky big boy saw.
