Kolpin Sawpress II Chainsaw Bracket for ATVs
Good product lacks one thing...
This product is built very well and was impressed with the quality. However when I mounted it on my quad they sent plastic brackets to hold this thing on the rack. I tightened the first one by hand with a screw driver and it broke in half! I made two metal plates to finish the installation. I can't believe they cheaped out on an area that you can't afford to. The last thing I want see is my $400 saw bouncing down the trail because of a failure of a plastic bracket. So buy it if you are like me and are willing to make a metal bracket and pitch the plastics ones.

Kolpin Sawpress II snap
I had this product for less than a year and it snapped in half. I almost lost my saw. The one year warranty will replace the broken part but before I install it I will reinforce the bracket.
I have two Kolpin gas can mounts and they are bending from the weight of the fuel cans. Not sure what was used to make these parts - I am less than impressed.

This is a great way to carry your saw on your ATV. I read some of the reviews about cheaper plastic brackets breaking, Kolpin must have listened to the feedback because mine came with metal U rings. Install only took 15-20 minutes. If you're going to mount it on your rear rack and you have a back seat on your bike, you may need to drill some holes in your back seat to get the mounting bracket to fit.

Looks good so far.
I just finished mounting the Saw Press II on my ATV. It came with U-bolts not the plastic brackets others have complained about. My impression so far is that it seems to be well made and hold the saw firmly. It did not work well with the bar cover on the saw though. I am very peased so far but have not trail tested it yet.
