Log-Hauling Trailer
Tim Ojala, New Ipswich, N.H., hauls logs on a 6 by 10 flatbed that’s set up to operate the way trailers did back in the horse logging days.
“We mounted a removable 12,000-lb., 12-volt electric winch in a stake pocket on the side of the trailer. It can be mounted on either side of the trailer for convenience and is powered by a 12-volt battery on the trailer that also operates the electric-hydraulic hoist.
“Two half-logs attached to hinged pieces in stake pockets make up the ramp for rolling the logs up.
“We run the cable out over the log and then back under it back up to the trailer on the winch side. We put wood blocks on the trailer bed to keep the log up, so we can get the cable out for the next log.
“Haven’t found a log big enough yet that we can’t lift.”
