I don't know from your picture what your pulling arrangement was, but you always need the Y arrangement (as shown above) close to the trailer.  This Y could be chain, cable, or strap.  This will prevent the log from twisting and you loosing control toward the end of your loading.  There are many pictures of my loading in my gallery.  I am sure that other members also have pictures of their loading arrangements.

I see... I didn't catch the Y arrangement.  TK has you loading the log by looping the cable around the log.  No Y.  I think the spring-loaded dogs on the ramps are supposed to do the job of keeping the log stable.  Thanks for the tip...

Try it, you'll like it.  ;D You just need to make sure that you hook the chain in such a way that it won't get pulled all the way to the winch before the log is on the deck.

The chain creates two points of contact which makes the log much easier to control.

Those spring dogs work fairly well when clean, but as bark and chips lodge in them, the log will get cattywompass on ya pretty quick when loading.

Well, I'm just a "naturalized" southerner.  I was born in Michigan.  They call me a Yankee, but I'm really a mid-westerner!   :D
