A little paint makes a big difference!

Didn't do the grapple yet because I might be changing it. It was modified to pinch at the ends instead of close on on itself. But I'm going to try it this way first.

Is that some sort of a burner behind the loader?  Maybe you need to give us a tour of the place you work.

Yeah I'm just using around out property/the mill for now, maybe get a couple logs close by, but only taking back roads really slow. I may extend the frame a little for longer logs and put a heavier hitch on.

X 2 on the burner.....

It's where I work it's for drying shavings. I would give a "tour" but we actually have had a competitor try to sneak in and see our system, so just for the company's privacy I won't be able to.
