The helpers in the picture are my father and a friend.  Miziz Stump Jumper helps also she keeps track of the board count and somtimes may even run the mill and the skidsteer.

ElectricAl

Sure would like to havea loader that we handle that much but it will come in time MAYBE says Miziz stump jumper.  How much lumber is on there and is it stickered? It looks like about 1000 bd ft. Mizuz Stump Jumpers guess.

Stump_Jumper,

The lumber on our wheel loader was fresh cut Red Oak.
4' wide, 8'6" long and each pack is 15 rows with 3" skids on 3/4" sticks.  Approx. 1000'

The loader will haul 3 bunks at one time, but the top pack slides around on bumpy ground :o

How come you did not splurge for the cab and heat on the JD loader ???

Sorry it took so long to get back with you.
We did not go with the cab option because we went with the backhoe option.  We just got around to developing pictures with the backhoe and skidsteer. The truck I rebuilt a couple of years ago.

Saw the picture, and somewhere in my brain a little message went off "you know this whack of logs" :D.

Stump_jumper,

Nice option. Is that JD a 260 with weights? Just can't quite read the number.

Good choice for a sawmill and excavation company ;)



Ours is a 250 cab/heat with weights. 48" forks, 72" construction bucket, bolt on teeth, 72" grapple, custom built dump box.

ElectricAl,

I notice you didn't tell stump_jumper that he got a better option.  Apparently, you didn't mention that you got trapped inside of our "good running" John Deere! :o   Without a cell phone! ;D   More than once! :D

Better you than me!  ;)   You probably would have left me there!  ::)

Linda  :)

Linda,

The door coming out of the track and the lift cylinders slamming the door into my face does not affect how it runs ::)
It affects how well I can see out the door. >:(

When a big Jag of logs needs to be decked, or a Whack of Walnut needs put away, it Runs just fine ;D

But, I have learned to never shut the door without a cell phone ???

We have had this loader for a year now, it has 190 hours on it and I have been trapped in it for 1.75 hours in 5 door failures.
First time was for 30 minutes. The loader was idling and the door cylinders had me pinned in the seat. I could not reach the key,  or move the door. Finally, Linda came looking for me and was able to pull on the door while I pushed.

JD has promised to do something. Either a new ROPS with cab and door or a whole new machine. We'll see ::)



Maybe a 280 ;D  I could Pack A Whack with that :D


By the way Linda         Nothing Runs Like A Deere

Al you'll have to use the same technique I use.

Me: Honey I sure love my Deere but the front end loader doesn't seem to be everything we need around here.

Her: You have spent every spare dime we have on logging toys. You'll just have to make do.

Me: (a few days later) Honey I need some help clearing this fence row, will you run the tractor and pile brush while I dig it out.

Her: (later that same day) Honey I think we need a grapple just like Al has.

Me: Well our loader doesn't have that option but a Deere loader does.

Her:  @#$%^$# NO

Oh well I guess you better not use my technique. :D

ElectricAl

We are running John Deere 250 Hi Flow with weights.  Glad I didn't get trapped with the trap door.  We just received a recall from John Deere for this machine for steering improvement.  This covers the skid loaders from 1999 - 2001.  Steering linkage wears out  which we have already figured out and repaired it myself because it was out of warranty.  And now they want to put all new steering linkage in.
