Had one come over the side dead lift and the larger walnut had to roll up the back after taking off 250lbs of forking so it could roll.  This was first big test for the crane and it worked like a charm.  Those cedar were left over and deck is 13 for idea of size.

Thanks again for all the advice folks, crane = happy back

Very nice set-up.  How much is that crane rated for?  It looks pretty heavy duty.  Does it have a stabilizer leg or do you support that corner of the trailer when lifting?

Rated for 2,800lbs and when the boom is up the winch can really pull an amazing amount...there is a drop trailer leveler on the other side to try and position support on both sides of the crane when I drop the normal trailer foot.  Gives it 5 points of contact including the pintle hook.

If you can find a crane for $500 like I did I believe its a great deal.

Side Parbuckling logs with a winch onto raised beams on blocks on the trailer floor.  My ramps are 6 inch steel pipe hook over the the trailer rails.  Unloading is quick and easy.  Just roll them off.  Just need to have a detachable fender for loading and unloading.

I installed a hydraulic winch on the front end of my trailer and connected into the trailer hydraulic powerpack.   When I use it I have a couple big oak beams that I use for ramps.  The winch cable runs out to the back center of the trailer through a snatch block, back to a second snatch block on the side opposite of where I set the ramps.   This keeps the cable from bunching up on the winch.    I've easily loaded logs up to 10k - 12K lbs this way.      

 

Sometime in the next week or two I am going to pick up a couple of 16' 42" diameter Red Oaks using this setup.   I'll try and get a few pictures of it in use.

Before my gooseneck tore up i made this pulley rig out of some scrap and a wheelbarrow rim i stepped on out in the woods.  The winch is on my bobcat grapple and id only use it for the logs it couldnt forkload.  The ramps are notched to hook onto the rub rail.
