She's young enough to have power steering :D I often have to use the brakes to steer on slick ground, with that kind of load on the back. I haven't had the wheels come off the ground yet, but it's enough to make them skid rather than steer.

Im wanting to see some more wood fetchers to get ideas from.  

I dragged this home in some trading recently and am setting it up for retrieving and delivering firewood.  Its an 84 F250 with 351/c6/bw1356 and 3.54 sterling 10.25 / TTB front with twist hubs, both welded.  



I pulled the 42s and put on some 1st gen humvee rubber ive had for years.  Its a lot happer on the 36s and steers lock to lock now without any rubbing.  



Need to build a dump flatbed with headache rack, removeable sides and toolboxes.

  This is my Load Trail dump trailer.  We usually process right into the trailer. Most of the time we do 1 cord loads, 16in wood goes to the bottom of the wood boards with a little hump in the middle (thats a cord), 18in, a little bigger hump, 22-24in wood needs to be at the top of the 2x4's that hold the side boards.

  I've put 1.5 (thrown) cord on without a problem, and stacked 2 cord (dry) for a longer delivery, trailer hauls it, just need to have enough truck!  I've moved plenty of logs with it too.  Usually cut them about 11ft and load either with my tractor and grapple bucket or my buddys excavator with hyd. thumb.

  Pretty sure she's a 2013, I actually bought it new, on it's second set of tires.  I've had to repair the gate a few times, but that was ALL MY FAULT!  I oiled her underside real good when I bought her, also had the fenders both LineX-ed.  All the used trailers I looked at the fenders were rotting off, figured an once of prevention...  Also keep it greased up.  She'll need a repaint in another year or two, better to keep it looking decent...

Forgot to add the Wife's Uncle's 85 International Truck.  He got it last year from a neighboring town.  They took pretty good care of it.  It's got a DT466 (I think it's got the turbo), and a 5speed with 2speed rear, and central hydraulics.  We pull a sideboard off to load. If we stack the headboard with 16in wood, I can run the rest straight in and get a cord in her easy enough.  He let's me borrow it when I've got "free help" and long delivery's, sure is nice to have 2 delivery's ready to go at once!  She doesn't even notice the cord when it's loaded, or the cord and a half!  Just used for local stuff.

 

It also has a front plow and wing plow.  He used the front plow all last season, still haven't mounted the wing, which may be a good thing for my mailbox...

Nice trailers, i'll build one someday when i get all my junk moved down.  All my steel plate is at my dads.   

Speaking of oil undercoating, one of my best friends up there in central mass does a mobile undercoating business.  He will come to you, winch it up onto a wedge trailer, airblast and spray whatever the stuff NH oil undercoaters sells.  Its not paint and not oil.. Some kinda paraffin wax and oil blend i think so it seeps in and never hardens.  He has gone as far as maine for group sprays.   PM me if any interest. 

I will look at that front axle a bit closer for cracking when i get back under there to finish motor oiling.  Im soaking the balljoints a few times before they have to get changed.  Thanks for the heads up.

Mike,

The NH oil undercoat stuff works great! My buddy did the wife and father in laws rigs today. It soaks in and kinda spreads.  I've seen guys doing the sprays on trailers before, they are better than me, I'd get more on me than I'd get on the truck!

The trailer is great for delivering but some places can be tough/tight to get into with one. 
It's when it's muddy or slick out the trailer can be fun.

Certainly not in a league with what I see posted here, but I work a small 15 acre woodlot with tight steep skid trails. Just wood for the sawmill and my neighbor and I's heat needs. I burn about 6 cords a year and mill lumber for our use. I drag the logs to the splitter or the mill and split as close to the stack point as possible. It's amazing what that little Mule will pull. Very little trouble with an 1,800 pound log, even on the hills.



 
Oscar 328 Band Mill, Husky 450, 372 (Clone), Mule 3010, and too many hand tools. :) I mill for fun and my mental health. NYLT Certified.

I ain't the woodcutter, but I can cut wood 'til the woodcutter gets here.

Ditto for tough terrain harvesting --Honda Foreman with trailer ( Subaru axle ). It works in this hilly, rocky woodlot. Just plenty of humping butts onto the trailer, sometimes noodling for less weight, then to piles for Spring splitting and stacking. Locals call the land here "bony". Even hard on a skidder when the lot was professionally cut in 2000.
No trucks, only a couple of years old Subarus. :(
P.S. How difficult is it to get pics up ?
Two wood stoves ( Jotul Rangely ,Jotul Oslo ) heating 99 44/100%
24/7. No central heat. 6-8 cords firewood from the woodlot /year. Low low tech: ATV with trailer, 3 saws, 2 electric splitters, a worn pulphook, peavy, climbing line for skidding, Fiskars 27, an old back getting older.
