Wood shed looks good. Going to put any siding on it? If so put it up green and when it drys there will be some gaps for the air to blow through.

Nice shed Oliver !  Built to last a while.   Make sure you point out to the listers that it is a movable shed on skids. They might over look that and it makes a big difference. Their assessment will still be plenty high for a shed.

Nice build! For what do you use that? Storage gardentools? or firewood?

  Update with a new picture. Siding is on three sides- 1X6 pine, still somewhat green and spaced with a 10penny nail. Already showing some daylight between the boards to let the wind through.
  Now to figure out how to finish off the open side. I'll probably just put the 1X6's down as far as the braces go for this year, with a header across between them at 6'6". Probably wait to make doors until next summer.
  Now to trade off some of my skidder repair jobs for some wood to fill it up!

Very nice looking shed.If it is used for green wood I'm afraid the wood won't dry.My brother built a similar style shed and ended removing every other board.

Put some rebar sides and a back rack on my rock bucket.   20 some loads of demo have come in, with a mixture of rebar, scrap metal, concrete and native shotrock.  Ive been sifting the pile with it and its working great.  The fines fall all over the driveway where i need em.  Then i dump on the edge and fling the big concrete and block stuff over the hill.  Medium stuff gets run into the clay up top to make my road base.   Im picking out the stones for a retaining wall and so forth.  30 more loads to come.. Gonna put me up around 150.  Not bad for a burnt, locked up, junk gasser bobcat.

I could use a burnt, locked up, junk gasser bobcat too. ;D
I am working on 3 roads now. One is being put up in the air at least 2 feet,one is only coming up about 6 inches,this is the truck road. They kinda squashed it down in one wet spot. Than the next one is where the forwarder came across the bog. Had plenty of rocks for him to cross,but the middle is higher than the wheel tracks. The wheel tracks are being filled in. Just want to level it out for the tractor.I have places for rocks 2-3 feet across and places for rocks only a few inches across. Good thing I can get rid of rocks. ::)

Satamax, I've thought about doing something like that with an old pickup truck.





A roll cage in in the plan also.

Puffergas, Those things are extremely reducted, rated for 40kph. with small two, three or four cylinders, of 20/40hp usually. AG tires, lockers everywhere. Nearly unstopable!  Except if they're not loaded. 
Could be done with a pickup sure. Or even better, with an old toyota hiace or dyna.

 I dont think the grapples have liked longer logs especially since they are on a log loader.

I got sick of never having chains long enough to wrap around the bucket and pick up logs. So after buying a pair of nice choker chains from Logrite I finally made a set of hooks for my bucket.

Crusarius,good idea.
I took a length of chain,kinda like a smiley in front of the bucket. I drilled a inch hole at the upper corner of each side of the bucket. I had to make the first link a little egg shape to get the bolt through the link of the chain. I put the keyhole part of a slider from my 3 pt winch onto the chain. Then I took the slider off and put a hook in its place. When I pick up a rock that is a little to big for the tractor one wheel comes off the ground,I can slide the keyhole over to keep both wheels on the ground. 6 inches makes a big difference. And comes in handy too if I can't reach something,I can slide it over more. The keyhole hangs just a little below the bucket,just a few inches.

never thought about doing it that way. That would have been a lot easier. The nice thing about this is I have 3 slots on each side and 4 slots in the middle. So if I get really serious I can hook plenty of chains. Or I can just hook the tail to keep it out of the way.

I can hook from the front of the bucket or the back of the bucket.

Thanx for the kudos.
