Our new Logrite Pole Arch, thanks for the demo Matt

Recommended Posts

We took our Logrite Fetching Arch and the new 'Pole Arch' attachment along to the European Woodworking show at the weekend.

 

Matt at Hawthorn Heavy Horses was kind enough to use the arch in one of his demonstrations. I filmed it in action, and the

. We had the log suspended nose heavy with it's front end lifted up into a Scandinavian arch. Roy the big Suffolk Punch made it all look very effortless, and it think the combo worked very well.

The log is a small 3m piece of softwood, no more than 14" in diameter. The Fetching arch will easily take a 25" diameter log and length is only limited by obstacles on the route out.

 

Our 'Pole Arch' attachment sits on the front of the Fetching Arch. It incorporates a heavy duty cable winch to draw logs up and off the ground and into the arch, plus a yoke to sit over the log for stability.

yeah looks good,

 

its the "clean timber" you speak which seems like an important use for this. absolutley hate the amount of sharpening required after logging thinnings pulled out with my horse using just a swingle tree!

Indened! I am using mini-forwarders (e.g. Kombidrag) and pole/scandinavian arches like this as much as possible to keep everything as clean as I can at the moment - it certainly keeps timber prices up which is good for business! However you do need space, but still a lot less than a machine that could pull the equivalent! There are some nice smaller arches that Logrite do which would help - then need a bit of adaptation too to work with the horse - I am sure I will be speaking to David about that in due course!! :thumbup:
