Trying something a little different.
Should have taken photos a little earlier. Trying a spray foam cocoon...

First I removed felling spikes
Then put packing paper through tank handle, and bar..to keep the foam from pushing through these areas

This is where I wish I would have taken more
Photos...it was more of an afterthought...

I lined a box with plastic and put a layer of foam in the bottom to bed the saw on..I actually didn't let it set up long enough, and the saw flattened the foam out when I set it in the box.

One thing I have heard. If you go to heavy on the foam.it doesn't all cure. Then when the guy opens the box the stuff starts to cure when it hits the air.

Then I continued to add layers to the outside of the saw. Next time, I would use a box that fit the saw a bit better, or add filler inside the box behind the plastic liner, to take up a little space. The box I used was way too big...and went through 3 cans of the foam. Lol. Not exactly cheap.

I let it set up between layers so it would cure. The plastic lining really hindered the curing. So I pulled it out of the box when the majority was set up..took the plastic off, and allowed it to cure overnight.

Splitting it in half...like I had mentioned..ended up really thin on the bottom. Will just have to add some padding for the saw to sit on.

I'll cut the box down some to cut down cost. 2" each way on the box can knock $10 off sometimes.

I will do the same next time...get a tighter fit as well. This was just s fly by the seat go at it. Was hoping to have it done yesterday...but wasn't expecting the longer cure times

Utah, unfortunately.....
I buy 2'x4'x3/4" foam insulation sheets, and cut to fit the interior floor, and walls of the box. The foam board has a dual purpose. Providing cushioning without too much give, and adding rigidity to the box structure.
Then fill around the power head with crumpled packaging paper, bubble wrap, space filler bags, etc.

The bucking spikes I remove, wrap in cardboard, and tape to the wrap handle. The powerhead itself gets completely drained, wiped down, and a shop towel folded into the clutch cover, then double bagged.

I just dump out the fluids, shrink wrap some foam or cardboard around the spikes, wrap the saw with foam padding, shrink wrap it, stuff it in a plastic bag, and throw it in a box with whatever leftover padding I've got handy, then tape the chit outta the box with Gorilla packing tape (definitely the best stuff I've found). I try to find just the right size box, so I don't have to pull the handle and spikes off ('cause I'm lazy).

I have only shipped one other saw to @jmssaws. That was just a big conglomeration of crapola that I had from other saws I have received. This was just something I had bought about trying. Would definitely make some changes if I had to do it again.

Plastic bottles make good filler and don't weigh much.

Good idea..they'd be very impact resistant as well.
Yep. Been using all the ones the wife saved for some reason. I'm about out and she quit drinking soda. Going to have to save water bottles I guess.
