    Well if its small and easy to get to i use the wife's 08 Jeep JK and my 6x12 trailer. usually cut to bout 8 ft logs and haul home and cut and split. if i really have to get into the woods i use my 79 blazer with 38 boggers and a 12000lb winch. goes through or over anything including "Mud"! or i also have my 350 warrior and a little lawn trailer.

    I also buck, split and stack where it stands. And then, once it's seasoned a bit, I have my kids haul it out!

    Honda ATV (remarkably similar to Sublime's ATV . . . minus the winch and handguards) with a small trailer attached . . . tree is cut down and cut up in the woods and I haul to a central pile where I can split it.

    This is my fetch mobile if the going gets tough. That little beast will climb pretty much anything. We don't have extreme terrain around here, so this will get it done. Its short and turns on a dime and is a true 4 wheel drive (no pavement for this thing when in 4 wheel drive, it will start breaking things). 1959 Jeep FC150. She looks a little rough, but runs fantastic.

    Well, they are still out there if you look hard enough. These things are getting sucked up by "collectors" now. Goofy people....I commonly refer to this as the worlds ugliest vehicle (but I pat it lovingly as I walk by it). This thing has been my plow truck for the farm for years. Change oil and feed it fuel and it just keeps running.

    Brand new, the top speed was advertised as 53 MPH. The thing has a baby 4 banger, but is geared like a tractor.

    My little red Tractor Supply wagon... If I'm lucky, I can back the lawn tractor up to it and pull it out... If I'm not lucky - well I've learned how to make engine noises while pulling... :coolgrin:

    I've also been known to use a two wheel barrel cart, or the split wood cart that I usually use to get splits into the house.
