Hay Ring Firewood Hauler
George Thornton figured out an easy step-saving way to pile and move firewood using a section of an old hay ring. The Gray, Georgia, farmer set the ring section on a couple of planks, then loads it up with firewood chunks. With his tractor’s 3-pt. bale spear he slips the two short stabilizer spears under the ring to move it. Forks would also work, he says.
“I can pick up about half a cord of wood at a time,” Thornton says. He sets the ring filled with wood next to his outdoor wood-burning furnace.
Now 95 and legally blind, Thornton says he no longer burns wood for heat. But for the years when he did, his hay ring stacker/hauler worked very well.
