The pics are of a machine called a straddle carrier. They were quite common around sawmills in the south. What's not obvious in the pictures is the 6X6 timbers with a large notch cut in each end. Lumber had to be stacked on these special cants. The movable clamps along each side of the carrier fit into those slots. Straddle carriers were usually built from modified hi-crop sprayers. Worked well in tight room situations where a forklift loaded with 16 ft boards couldn't go.
