Impressive.  What kind is it?  Did it stay stretched?

Why not go under the thing with the forks? Someone is going to get hurt doing that.

@Peter Drouin @ladylake this bundle was between a pile of logs and other slabs. I could not get under it with the forks. It was one of two bundles that we're seasoned. I needed it to put in my slab rack to cut for camp firewood. The machine tires never moved just the boom. I would NEVER even think about trying to load a customer like that. No one else was around. Once I got it lifted past the logs I set it down and went under it with the forks. 



 
It was back in this hole.


 
Then moved to the cutting rack

@ljohnsaw I use 3/4" woven strapping with a 2500 lb break strength. I buy it from a company called
strapping products.com

It didn't stretch really the slabs just rolled up. Once I set it down the straps were not loose.
