Nice Work, Look like very solid logs.  I am not able to sell sycamore for ties.  Stella Parsons would take them but they shut down in this area.

Thanks Guys . We have snow and ice on the ground now but should hit 50s by weeks end . I haul about 1,500 ' of smaller logs or up to 2,000' of big longer stuff but only haul less than 15 miles on very rural back county roads. Just bought a heavier 08 superduty dually yesterday that will make for a safer haul . Had to unload the tie logs by hand/cant hook at a tiny Amish mill .They pay well but a pain to haul to .....

RayMo,
  goooodnight! :o Now that is one serious load on a one ton. What truck were you pulling with before the new 08 powerstroke? I am looking to do the same type of thing, falling...and sawing myself. I just threw a post up about a machine to skid logs and load on my gooseneck to relocate to my mill. What are you and your son using?

I would double check your state and federal rules for transporting heavy loads.   Besides rules on load weights, licenses, dot numbers, possible cdl, etc... when transporting logs one thing that is easy to spot are the rules for securing logs.  I believe you would need some sort of solid bunk or bolsters that cradles the logs or prevents them from rolling.

Nice load of logs.

Pulled with a 97 1 ton powerstroke crew with single rear tires. Trailer has two 12,000 lb axles and extra heavy brakes on both.
 Kinda hard to unload by hand with solid bunks  ;D I have a set to fit on trailer when hauling to a mill with loader to unload with .

Nice! Hey RayMo, do evr try out new stuff on sycamore? They respond really well swinging. You can pull off about anything with them as long as your canopy will give you clearance. They sizwheel really really well....you can swing them 180* all day on a slope.

I'm headed down around Batesville soon to cut along the river. I bet there are tons of sycamore down there, supposed to have a bunch of over size stuff.

I love cutting Sycamore cause it cuts fast and easy to limb with very little chance of splitting . And as you say it is very forgiving on the directional falling issue . Skids easy and the slick bark does not pick up much dirt or rocks to dull saw at the landing.
