I thought I could re-invent the wheel ( bucking firewood anyways ) so I took 3PT hitch mounted pallet fork ( from Titan )  bought a thumb ( Greens ) had the thumb welded onto the pallet fork, plumbed it and valved it from my read hydraulic ports on my JD 790 and voila I could back it under the log, lift it and pinch it and then buck it up in the air and save my 60 year old abused body. I sold the JD 790 and have not re-plumbed my JD2520 so it sits in my neighbors shed under cover. I spent $1500 more or less to build it and barely used it......

great idea.  Keep that bar and chain out of the dirt.

gman,

I saw one of those on C-list a while back, it caught my eye.  I didn't have enough $$$ in my firewood expense account (a small white envelope tucked under my pillow) to buy it.  If I would've had the forethought to have both a dump trailer and flatbed, I would have gone out in the yard and dug out one of my emergency fund mason jars!!!  I really like what you got AND all the versatility of that dump trailer
