lt30 manual turner
« on: March 31, 2013, 11:04:24 PM »
The lt 28 30 and 35 manual use the same winch to roll the logs up the ramps and operate the log turner.  Anybody make any mods to make changing the cable from loading to turning easier and faster?

I've got an Lt30 and have wondered the same thing.Slow and steady seems to be my operating speed these days.Slick and improved frequently costs money.Thanks for the post.

   I have an LT30 with the manual log loader with an electric winch in place
of the manual winch that I use for log turning and I load logs with my tractor
front-end loader. If I needed to use the winch for log loading I would add
another winch, cable and pulley and leave the claw cable and pulley as connected,
which is a pain to dis-connect and re-connect.

Like Slingshot, I use an add-on electric winch for loading logs on my manual LT30.
The 60" Logrite cant hook is my log turner - it's a workout when quarter sawing!
