    I saw a nice, 5 foot wide or so skidsteer mount grapple bucket at the fair.

    Tractor already has skidsteer mount plate, and hydros up front. It would make cutting tree length a snap.

    I thought about a tooth bar grapple to help clear the brush in the woods, but they are expensive.

    This is the sub compact series. The loader can handle 600# and the backhoe can lift about 850.

    What do you mean, "don't laugh"? Do you really think anyone with good sense would do it any other way if they had a machine like that?LOL The only thing better I could think of was a skid steer with grapple bucket. More maneuverable. So, yeah, what kind of log is it? Looks like a black birch.....

    I have a york rake, ballast box, a racthet rake for the bucket, and some forks for pallets. I also have a 16" bucket for the backhoe, as well as the mechanical thumb. I started a thread here on the log. http://www.hearth.com/talk/threads/tree-id.91289/#post-1194619 I am sure I will pestering you folks alot because I am no good, or new should I say, at identifiying trees.

    Nice!! I plan to one day have that attachment for my tractor. It was my response to my bro-in-law when he asked how much longer do I think I'll be able to cut/burn firewood. As long as I can get fuel for the tractor! :)

    nice....i have a little JD 1026R with front end loader and mower but no back hoe. the bucket loader saves a bunch on a old tired back. plus, fill the bucket with wood and take it to the splitter or take the splits to the drying pile. i have the 27 ton splitter.....most of my splitting is done vertical. easier right now for me because i have some big rounds. matter of fact...i hear my little diesel calling now.;)

    I find it easier to use the splitter in the upright position. For those big rounds.
