HAHA.  That makes me think of the "buy it now with 1-click," feature on Amazon.  I really need the second or third questions basically asking me if I really need whatever I am buying. 

How the heck would you even arrange shipping something like that?  Seems like it would be a real PITA not being there.  Again, only my opinion, but Tajfun seems to really make a good product.  I want one.  Need an OWB more though.

Sounds like you need a package deal- OWB and Tafjun winch would go great together ;)

I do need that,  but the 20K that I would be sending out with it, I don't need to let go of just yet.  I will be looking though!

I've been thinking about wood handling since I stumbled on this post. I decided to give the pallet idea a try. I got free 48 x 48 pallets from my wife's work and used three 8' 2x4 rough cuts and some free 1/8" aircraft cable.

I didn't have anything real green to load on it. The tree these were cut from were cut last fall and left in log length all winter. This spring I cut them to length (2' long), split and stacked them. I didn't do a moisture meter reading but they are probably pretty seasoned. This set-up holds 56 cubic feet which would probably be over my loader's capacity if it were all green oak. I think I'll be OK because I usually process logs that are a year old anyway and by the time I'd need to move the pallets closer to the boiler they should be well seasoned. I have another set of forks from a fork lift that I plan to make a 3-point mounted set with. That will let me carry one pallet up front and one out back at a time.

47sawdust that is an impressive set up and if you don't mind I'm going to steel your little tarp system, that's cool as heck.
Nice set up over all. What fabric are you using?
To keep on topic, a friend let me borrow his ss electric (not sure if it was an actual ss back then)  about 30 years ago, I split a lot of beech and hard maple with it, as far as I know he still has it.

Splitting some Cherry with the SE.  Load the snow buckets and raise next to the SS.  Split and toss into basket.  Did 4 baskets Saturday until the sun came out and got hot.

heavy duty plastic pallet and field fence.  I like the sheep and goat fence the best because the of smaller openings.  Then drill holes in pallet and attach with 200 lb outdoor UV resistant cable ties.  Depending on the wood moisture I can get up to 1200 lbs of wood in a basket.  Regular plastic pallet do ok too.  In the winter I must be careful where I put the baskets.  The pallets will get frozen to the ground/mud.  I keep a good supply in the barn or on gravel.  So far I have almost gone through 3 rolls of fencing.

Jigs are the best!  Made one up for my firewood pallets too.  Saves a bunch of time.

 

 

(not the best photo of my wood racks)

We use the racks to hold our 22in long firewood (2 rows w/ air between) and on the pallets we stack 16in customer wood to dry.
