New log Turner for the mill (update with new pics)
« on: April 04, 2018, 05:33:00 PM »
I had a new log loader and Turner built for the mill and log yard.
It's in Canada now waiting to get shipped to the US.
Hope to see it next week.

Very nice!!!  Am sure it will be handy--just be careful with any logs in the grapple near the mill.  Will have to come over some day to see your operation.  All the best, Rob.

Will you be using that on your Mahindra tractor? I can see where that will be quite handy indeed.

Unfortunately the deal with Farms is out of my budget.
But if all goes well I will be a new owner of an off road grapple trailer today.
I will post some pics when it finalizes.

Mr.MM 
With all the drama and flipping and flipping and dishonest financing companys.
This ended up the best thing in the end.
I can pickup logs locally, load the mill,move my waste and It be things with the trailer mount.
I got it at my tractor dealer who I like very much.
The importer not so much.
Woody's are great folks not far from where my family came from in Canada
I like that it might be weird to some but I like the stuff.
I towed it home with my have ton truck with no breaks on the trailer over hill and dale .
I couldn't believe how well it towed for an of road trailer.
