handling loose logs

Recommended Posts

Cheers all.  Frontloader tractor will have loads of other uses:  we can't afford to buy any kit that's only good for logs. 


Noted GDH.  I've been a bit worried about that, but OK so far. (we're on the East Coast, so fairly dry). Building a dutch barn soon and it will definitely be divided up.    Might get some crates or IBC cages in due course - I think our valiant with rear forks would lift them when dry, but would need weight on the front.

I just cut into a big heap as long the wood is reasonably dry when you do this your logs will be ok . 

When loading logs will a loader and bucket keep the bucket flat to the floor and once it’s full crown back just like any thing else. Be careful when pushing up against walls .   

Logs go over the cleaner move and heaped up with loader . Left to dry sold this coming winter.
