The land owner next to me had an area on his property cleared out and he let me take all the larger trees for firewood grin . Most of the logs are on the small side but free fire wood is free fire wood haha. I needed a way to get the wood out, so i built a log arch out of some extra pallet rack shelving and part of a tractor attachment. I used the part of the frame for a backhoe attachment that goes under the tractor for my arch. It works really well!

Nice job. that should speed up the process of getting the logs where you want them.


I know a lot about a lot of things BUT I still have a lot to learn.
Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

Hi speed loggin! --- I like that! The arch will make it a whole bunch easier and faster to get the logs moved. Saves a lot of work.

I was able to get to hauling out some of the bigger logs yesterday. It handled it very well

I only have a small hill to go down to where I'm stacking the logs and i can go straight down it. If i had to turn at all or go on any type of angle down the hill, i would be using something much bigger than the quad for the big logs.
