I have a frontend loader with forks to slide the slabs onto and fortunately I only need 8' 2x4s and 1x6s

Take care of yourself, I just went through about a month of a back issue. I sneezed in my kitchen one morning making coffee and popped my lower back out of all thing's. I was useless up to just a few day's ago it has started going away.

Not fun at all. Be safe and have fun.

Silver Eagle, the only chiropractor I ever went to said it wasn't what you did when you hurt your back it was what you had done the previous week and shortlogger what are you doing hurting yourself moving a big log when you have forks on your tractor.

Saturday went well cut a trailer load of lumber and did some chainsawing feels go to be back at it . When I hurt my back the log was already on the mill I was just trying to position it just right to saw , dang manual log turners . Thanks for the concern guys  I am trying to do what my dad has been telling me for a while work smarter not harder .he's always saying that will make a old man out of you  @ 32 going on 60 I think he was right.
