The other reason I lift them along side the reactor instead of dragging them is I don't want to rip the road and grass were I have to drive too, with the log dragging and came up with the side approach it works well for me I welded 3 hooks to the loader bucket slip hook in center and grab hook on the ends mounted on pieces of 3" angle for reinforcement.
dragged 60' of logs out of the forest and hoisted them up with the loader.
great idea, slice your way down the line.
my old Husky 65 still kicks ass. first paycheck out of high school in '75.
2 weeks, $150.
I have a newer one for smaller stuff...but the Big Boy comes out sometimes.
I had to replace the butterfly valve shaft in the carb, dammit, but other than that it's been chains, gas, and oil.
