4-Wheeler Log Skidder
He started with the 36-in. wide axle off a motorcycle sidecar and welded a length of 2 1/2-in. angle iron onto it. Using square tubing, he welded a tongue onto the angle iron. Then he welded a V-shaped log holder on top.
“It really works good. I cut the logs into whatever lengths I can handle, then drive up to them with the 4-wheeler and log skidder and place the butt ends onto the V-shaped log holder. Then I secure the logs on by wrapping a chain around the tongue and the butt end of the logs. I use a load binder to cinch everything tight so the logs don’t slide off. It’s simple but it works.”
