New-Style Log Skidder Pulls Easy
Pull logs without digging into the ground with Log Sled, designed and built by the Lucco family of Slippery Rock, Penn.
  "The concept came from my grandfather, Jim, who's 82, and still gathers firewood every year," says Matthew Lucco about the Log Sled. "It was always a problem dragging timber with chains. We came up with this and used it for a couple years, then decided to pursue a patent and start manufacturing and selling them."
  The 1/4-in. plate steel sled is 36 by 24 in. wide and 17 in. high. Its 24-in. long rigid steel tongue has a 1 7/8-in. ball coupler. The curved front makes it easy to pull the sled over rough terrain. A lip on the back supports a stack of cut wood or one long log.
  "There's no downward tongue weight on the ATV, like there would be with a wagon, so it's all lateral pulling tension," says Lucco. He's in business with his father, Rocco.
  The Luccos tested the Log Sled in various climates with logs from 7-in. to 15-in. dia.
  The rotating tongue folds back for easy storage. The 85-lb. Log Sled sells for $399 (including shipping in the continental U.S.) and is guaranteed for five years. The Luccos are interested in adding dealers in the U.S. and Canada.
