Urban logging
« on: May 19, 2019, 02:27:01 PM »
Urban logging today.
It was tight corners for the Mahindra had to unhook the Woody's off road trailer. 
Move the logs out from behind the house hook the trailer up and load up.
Got 2 more trips to make this week.

On the log trailer , I wish I got the winch and pony motor set up.
Could park the trailer by the mill and load logs and still have the tractor available to move sawn lumber at the same time. Not needing to hook up and unhook.

I could have used the winch on the job pulling logs out from behind the house

I hope you were paid to remove the logs or at least got them for free.  Back before I retired I worked a lot of jobs like that, usually the property owner was paying me to do the work.  I had equipment and skills they needed and they had wood to remove.  I looked at it like this "I didn't need them but they needed me."  In my area most of the loggers have turned their backs on jobs like that, I made a decision twenty five years ago to specialize in them and set up a system to do the work.  Good for you for getting those logs out.  Every urban area I travel to has an abundance of that scale of work available.
