    Holder

    I think its more handy to have a holder that fits on your belt, to keep it at your waistline. I have not found one in Baileys catalog, but would like one myself.

    Here's a thing to think about: As those scrench holders get worn, they don't hold the scrench tight. The end of the scrench starts bouncing around, gouging up the plastic on your saw.

    I put one on my 460. It lasted about 10 minutes and I cut it off with a razorblade, tossed it.

    I see in baileys new catalog they are selling a multi tool type w/scrench's. Yes scrench's!! not available till April though, looks like will fit in a pocket and has everything including a t27 for the stihl fans. Had same problem w/the holder became loose and scratch things up.

    For a minute there, I thought that was a Harleyvarna... almost the right color orange.

    I like those holders on certain saws but If rolling the saw all around limbing they are more hassle then their worth.

    Had one, but i figured it was pointless, cause i cut firewood, and my truck is always nearby, and my tools are in my truck....

    I have one of those scrench holder things built right into the side of my pants leg.
    If some one asks if I have a knife or a scrench, my awnser is. "I have my pants on".
