Lighter Lugging

16 Mar

Lugging wood is much easier thanks to the road implement and some chains. Fairly balmy temperatures make for a muddy working area..although last winter was a mess this year and the extra 2 months of mud have not been much fun either.


We cut the trees off with 4 feet of trunk left on.. Saw some neat YouTube videos of pulling them out with a tractor with the stumps this length so we are gonna try it out in a year or so after the stump is dead.

And a couple nice bonfires too..this one burned for 24 hours at this point.
We also get a nice view of the treestand (we inherented) from our bedroom window.

    I added a fairly cheap set of bucket mounted pallet forks to mine and they are extremely handy for lifting logs.

    Forgot to add that I also added a set of bolt on hooks and that made it easier than wrapping the chain around the bucket.

      I was thinking about some hooks..and about another 100 attachments! Hehe. Soooo much easier than manually moving logs either way!
