Actually Tim, I don't have a picture of it.  It has been several years since I've had to skid logs.

That is one exceptional cherry, Magicman! It will definitely be worth the effort 8)

Can't wait to see the lumber that comes out of those logs!  I'm sure you'll have fun getting them out.  ;D

Me too!  :o

I sawed some cherry last week. Didn't have to worry about the wood pinching the blade because as soon
as you set it free it just popped right up on both ends  ::)

Some of the boards had compound stresses in them. They went up and sideways  :D

The guy claims he will be able to use it
Why not just 1 pain free day?

 ' They went up and sideways ' :D ...........


Could always build rocking chairs;
                                                  They that went up would make the rockers;
                                                   They that went sideways would make curved arms  :)

The three Cherry logs got skidded out Friday, and are now at the Cabin ready to be sawed.
 


I just hung the tongs over the top link catch on the "Quick Hitch".  I have no idea how old those tongs are.  They belonged to my Great Granddad and he died in 1936.  The amazing thing is that I can find no evidence that they have ever been sharpened.

 


Skidded out.
 


The butt log has ring shake and a hollow center.

There will be some wonderful cherry lumber in your future  :).  You are building a cabin, right?  ;D.

Prolly nothing that would cause them to get dull and need sharpening. I've not touched mine up in the 40 + years I've had them and expect they are about the same vintage as yours (although mine have had the tip welded back on one side). I too use the quick hitch top hook as it works great and is always on the 3 ph.
