This looks really handy!
I work with an urban logger from time to time and he needs something like this on a larger scale to load logs onto his trailer.
Have you seen any bigger models like this?

I made this one... I think its BIG....

Has anyone ever made just an axle that you would put under one end of a log and then pick up the other end of the log with the 3 point on a tractor and then be able to pull the log that way?  Thats what Im dreaming up to bring big logs out of the woods.

   I had a rear dolly built and use it in conjunction with my log arch. The arch holds up the front end of the log. I don't see why something like this could not be used with a tractor to pick up the front and tow it within the limits of the tractor and terrain.
 

 
See dolly on left on the ground.
 

 
I lift the log with the winch on the log arch (You could use your tractor) set the log in the Vee and strap it in place with a ratchet strap.
 

 
I then hook the front of the log to my arch and tow it to my log yard - I see no reason you could not do this with your tractor if within its limits.

That makes for a pretty big turning radius in the woods. I kept mine as short as possible to track behind the tractor in my tight trails. It will go anywhere the tractor can fit.

I can only handle about10 at the most on my mill,so I wouldnt be towing anything longer than that out of my woods.  I think it will work great for my needs.  Pickup back with loader and slide wheels under.  Then pick up other end with 3 point and tow to my mill.  I dont want to be trying to carry big logs long distances with the loader.  This gives me some ideas.  Thanks.

I'm a new member, and I read this string after seeing a reference to it in another. 21incher, that is one of the most innovative and professional Fab jobs I have seen. Great job.
Just another one of many things I'm learning by being on this forum. Thanks for walking us through the thought process and build of this handy Log Arch!

Thanks olcowhand and welcome to the Forestry Forum. That is what happens when you have too much time on your hands.  You will find unlimited reference info on here and I am sure you will be contributing info and ideas in the future also.  :)
