ga - not sure I understand. Are you saying you bunch the five logs across the trail rather than along it and pick them up so they are totally off the ground and across the winch parallel to the axel. If so It is just a heavy weight like a ballast box and should not hurt your top link or 3pth.

Clever way to keep them clean if your trails are wide enough.
Yep.  That's what I was doing.  Keeps them off the ground and I don't think it has hurt anything.

Not really a reply to your post but a general question. Why do so many people refer to chokers as "chockers"? Chokers choke. Chockers chock. They are completely different things.

Probably because spelling is not everyone's strong point?

I usually do the spell check on each and every post I do. But I guess I missed my reply on Feb 1. But every so often the spell check won't check. Must of been that time.
