If you have a barn or large shead you could hang it from the rafters when you
need to use the trailer.

I got plenty of room to store it.

I have an idea kicking around in my head.
Was going to build a trailer for my new sawmill but now thinking of buying a heavy car hauler type trailer to set the mill on and use a winch to pull up the log onto the trailer from rear and roll onto sawmill bed. So if not using sawmill I could still use trailer for other task or to haul logs home.
Here Is what I did for the HFE-21. The biggest problem with the trailer with side rails was safety. If a log rolls, there was no where to go. With the right safety precautions it was fine. I could dead stack lumber on each side of the track and take the entire trailer home at night or when leaving the mill and trailer I would park the truck real close and off-bear right onto it. The nice thing with using the trailer was that between the track, the steel framed box for the track and the trailer, it was stiff enough that I had little to no flex and it was a piece of cake to level.

Cool idea the trailer I am speaking of has no side rails.

Well I haven't been on in a while. I feel in my shop working on adding a second floor and broke my knee in three places back on 3/16/2016.
Did buy a new trailer for healing logs or saw mill its a 24' car hauler with a dove tail. Did get one of the pecan trees cut up and loaded onto the trailer.

 
Waiting on broke leg to finish heeling so I can build the sled frame for saw mill.
 

 
Have 12k winch to pull logs onto trailer.

Still have 2 more trees to lay down. about same size. No hurry to saw them and dry. My kids are holding off for about 5 years on building them a house. So now we can cut logs up and let them air dry slowly.

I haven't wanted to do much of nothing. Getting to feel much better. Hope the doctor will let me start walking in June.

Definitely don't let walking in sawdust discourage you from the WM 10 and 15. Both are great rigs and very dependable. Adding a power feed makes sawing all most effortless in comparison to pushing it. Add a bucket or dust collection system. I have had a lt 15 with the yanmar diesel and power feed for 3 years now and wouldn't trade it for nothing! Great Lumber and can saw all day on 1 tank of fuel!
