Wisconsin Forestry Field Day
« on: October 07, 2005, 11:11:27 PM »
Logrite tools were in full view of attendees to this field day. Stihl tent didn't have the 'Stihl colored' ones yet.

Near as I could tell, the Stihl booth had the logrite tools but the personell were not aware of the Stihl name being on them. I will ask more information tomorrow, at least act inquisitive, and not too smart.  :)  Appeared that the log scale sticks were there as well, but didn't take time to look real close.

Didn't run into Burlkraft today, but there was a very good attendance and a lot to see. I may have to go back awhile tomorrow.  :)
A 3pt grapple


A 3pt chipper for small limbs and brush (on a small tractor too)


A 3pt nut planter that apparently could handle acorns and set up for walnuts. Appeared to be lots of welding done to keep this operational.


A grapple loader for a larger farm tractor. Didn't see this operate.


A fuelwood processor that wasn't running, had some 'murphy law' problems.


Business end of the fuelwood processor that could be set for different lengths and different options for wedge placement.


Water diversion idea with a belt sandwiched between two treated boards (per sample laying to the side).


Temporary stream crossing idea, with plastic pipe tossed down, and heavy plank chained together with binder. The chain ran through holes drilled through the width of the planks.

That is very likely who had them there, as they were sponsoring as well as Stihl. Stihl was selling a lot of chainsaw chaps it seemed like. Maybe the timing, or the demonstrations, or a sale price. But was good to see. At the demo I went to, of 30 people, there were only 4 or 5 said they wear chaps.

Your show looks woodlot owner oriented, which is good to see. :)
