Something like this needs more room! But very few smaller trailers are going to deliver to this type of unit.  ;) I had lots of good times in BC delivering to the big guys.

When I first saw this picture I thought it was a Tonka truck parked next to a Matchbox Car on an HO train set......

Must be a Maine thing,  :D I thought the same thing. That "unloader" makes that truck,load of logs look small.

That loader is similar to the ones used at some of the mills near us in Mississippi. Of course some are giant gantry cranes with the operator 150 feet in the air or located in an adjacent building ...using remote video devices.

A simple deviation to the problem is to increase the thickness to the bottom runners...put cuffs on the ends so that it can be slid into place. When not needed lift them up and place them in the barn.

Have a MERRY Christmas
