Good job on the log arch.  With those "driveway gates" on the sides it reminds me of a top fuel car. ;D   If you're still planning on using it to move the mill, are you thinking about adding a small arch to the front so you can use the cable to lift both ends of the mill?

Yeah, kind of a dragster look to it  :D  I loaded it on my flatbed to take up to the property.  Got some interesting looks on the highway!

I ended up making my mill wider than the distance between the uprights, so no, I will not be using it to move the mill.  My flatbed will take care of that.  However, the mill rails are about the width of the uprights and will fit between the tires.  I'm thinking I might make a log deck almost as high as the mill rails and I could back the arch over the mill lengthwise, if that makes sense.  I won't have my my SkyTrak forever  :(
