    A log hoop, much like the one pictured on frywoodguy's thread. the arch carries the bulk of the weight, and the solid attachment points keeps the log from gettin to crazy outta contol, and they drag eisier, and can turn shallow corners.

    started the pull downhill,the rest of the pull uphill.
    when unloading the log will not fall off arch without "help" :-/
    took 6 hrs to skid all wood pictured. "hobby loggin' "

    Holy cow... fyrwoodguy now those are some nice sized logs too...shows the incredible advantage of using an arch. If I were solely using an ATV to harvest logs a good arch would be a priority purchase. Very good pics.
