3-Pt. Mounted Log Lifter
“We needed a way to get medium-sized logs to our sawmill, so we used scrap steel to construct a 3-pt. log lifter. It works great to move logs to our sawmill, and a built-in receiver hitch lets us move trailers without getting off the tractor,” says Jack Agnew, Gum Spring, Va.
To build the unit, Agnew welded a vertical length of big square tubing to a triangle-shaped base that attaches to the lift arms. He also drilled holes into the top to secure chains, and welded on an extra grab hook to work with a choker chain. The hook on the tongs makes them self-adjusting.
“It’ll handle logs up to 3 ft. in diameter and 40 ft. long,” says Agnew. “The operator backs up to the log, lowers the lifter, tightens the chain, and lifts the log off the ground, dragging it around like a travois.”
