    I have hauled 8 cords this year in my Sienna minivan, like others here. This week my wife took it to the airport as I was going to drive more than just the one roundtrip. Of course, we then get 40mph gusts. With my keen scrounge-fu I manage to find a tree that was down and had been chopped by the town and left. This weeks hauler was therefore the Honda Fit......

    I can pull it with my ATV and not have a lot of tongue weight, it will also turn much easier, and when I'm using a tractor I can
    lift my bucket up to dump the trailer.

    Not tall enough! We are looking at building a pole shed that will be lots big enough to house it.

    Sweet pic and by far the best way to get logs from the woods to the shed.

    Is that an non-committal Tuesday/Thursday or a misspelled tears day? Who sells that bad boy and how much?

    I picked up one of those Farmi skidding attachments at an auction a couple years back cheap as noone new what it was. I was going to sell it on ebay and make a quick buck untill I used it. It is the greatest thing for getting logs out of those wet spots. I don't think it saves time but does make the job alot easier. pull them to a landing, buck them up and thow them into the truck.

    You are one lucky leaddog. I've seen a dozen of them at auctions over the past few years and they always get within a few hundred bucks of new. A friend of mine has one and it saves a lot of time and equipment abuse in rough steep terrain. Also makes things possible in the winter that otherwise would be undoable.

    Yes they are a life saver, Works so nice getting everything to the logging trail, hook up a few at once and back to the processing area where we cut and split.
