    New question here. Anybody Carry a Saw in their pack?

    I have been carrying a Wyoming Saw in my camelback that I use for cutting trees in the way of the trail. Just curious if anybody out there packs a saw?

    I usually carry a small folding saw with me to take care of anything below 5" or so. It's either cut it then during my ride or come back later to do it. Might as well save the trip.

    Tons of lodgepole pine in my riding area. Having a saw is a must especially early in the season.

    I carry this: http://mobile.homehardware.ca/en/detail?R=I5064155
    Good for trees up to about 6" thick or so. Was cheap less than $20 if I remember right

    Depending on the intent, a folding saw or a Sven saw or a Gerber felling axe will take care of just about anything.

    A folding saw or a hand chainsaw. The hand chainsaw is average.

    I carry a Sabercut Chainsaw.

    Works good and takes up almost no space.

    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    Always, just a typical folding saw. I think I paid $10 for it.

    I have a Silky folding saw that a guy with the local USFS department gave me. It's a little bulkier than some saws out there, but it fits pretty well in my pack, doesn't weigh a lot, and cuts really well. I carry it with me most of the time, unless I'm out for a quick ride.

    I gonna pickup a small can of wd40 to pack with my saw. From what I found on the internets it speeds up cutting through big ass logs.

    Folding Silky. Works a treat, you can get replacement blades and it is light. Lives in my pack.

    I carry this one with me on most rides here in Hawaii. It's a jungle (most of the time) so more often then not, I'll end up doing some trail clearing.

    Yup, I call it paying my dues for all those awesome trails I've flowed through over the years. Just putting some back into the bank of which I certainly withdrew 1000's.

    Nice. I plan on doing some more cleanup tomorrow on my local trail. Hopefully I can remember to pack my cam for some saw action shots!
