I will say this; if that truck door stays open, the inside will get sawdust.  :o   Same as if a window in left open.  :-X

I have doen it where it took a few hours to hand lift it back up at a customers,, no heavy equipment to lift it with. The last thing I do after I saw the last board is lift the back stops, move the clamp all the way out, then I shut down the mill aand move lumber and load a log on th arms.

That is the reason that if you have an energy chain (gooseneck) with your hydraulic lines in it... you always bring the mill back before you roll a log or cant.  Banjo
Never explain, your friends don't need it, and your enemies won't believe you any way.

My wife's cousin had me come to the home place of their grandparents to saw some 32" red oak logs.  Yep, rolled one over the back stops and off the mill.  No equipment to get the log back in place so I had to break the mill down and turn it around to get the log.  I was sawing the lumber for family (aka free of charge) so the time didn't matter.

On the WM they get stuck between the frame and the tire, not a good spot as you have to lift them out

I just did this yesterday demonstrating the log loading process to my step son. No pics but I got to cross that off the list
I am sure you immediately shared this is to show what not to do and is part of the demonstration.
