When I lifted timbers off the mill, I would raise them up with the roller toe board system to get them up enough for the fork lift to get them without hitting the mill bed.

That's another good piece of advice.  And, that's why I joined the Forestry Forum in the first place.  That has been an issue, which was why I had to do another bed alignment at the end of the day yesterday.  Two bunks on the bed extension got lifted.  I was not the one driving the forklift at the time, but I heard some metal clanging and got to fix the aftermath.  It happens, it's difficult to see where your forks are at all times, could have happened to me.

On the big logs that are difficult to turn where you are using the fork lift, you an assist turning by using the hydraulic clamp.   It has more power for lifting the than the standard claw turner and probably the chain turner as well.   Just move the clamp out to the farthest point where you can lift the log/cant.  Then raise it up as far as it will go, then apply the turner.  Lifting the log/cant changes the angle of the turner to where is requires less power to function.   It's a physics leverage thing.   I've done this many times with success on my LT40 on logs that the loading arms could barely lift.
