Thanks, I'd be interested to know what section steel he used.

I have made the Norwood log-loading system, exact copies so that it all looks right if I ever sell the mill.

 

The ramps are 50x25x3 section with a section of channel welded at one end to hook over the rails and some feet at the ground end.

 

The pillar is made from 60m and 50mm tube with the winch plate at the top.

 

The whole kit cost less than £80 including the winch. A considerable saving on the manufacturer's item, 7 or 800 quid, if I remember, and a couple of nights in the workshop.

 

Steel from F H Brundle or Parker Steel or any steel stockholder. Can send pictures if required.

I haven't fitted the winch yet as the log-loading kit is for use away from the yard. I have a Hiab on site and always bring the timber back here to mill so haven't had the need to work away from the yard yet.

 

The kit was well worth making as I will use it sometime. If you look on the Norwood site, or maybe youtube, you will find some videos of loading logs using this system.

Thanks for that.

 

I've used a similar winch system for loading on trunks on to a trailer.
