    Not sure if a thread has been done on this topic, if so there are lot of new members so maybe we can start a new updated one. Post pics of your wood hauling gear here! I'll start.....


    This little sucker is indispensable hauling wood around. Depending on how much I'm doing I also attach a 4x6 trailer to it. Its a kubota RTV500

    And when things get tough I break out the big guns. Its a little more dirtier now though

    Nice looking eqipment you don't want a picture of my Wheelbarrel, with the cost of that stuff you could just buy enough wood to last 200 years.



    Looks Good I would like to have a 4-wheeler

    First pic is about 5 years ago when we bought the property and the truck shortly after that, doing a little cleanup around the property.
    Then the kids and I decided it needed a little paint job, and then some bumper stickers that needed a home.
    Plow with in the winter too, have only plowed once so far this winter!

    Doubles as a bucking crib, just don't cut past the layer of poles on the bottom.

    Trees were about twenty five years old growing in what had been the cellar and yard of the house I grew up in. Many years later a tornado wiped out the house, no one hurt.

    And those were the smaller ones that were losing the fight for light fifty feet up. That locust sure does make a lot of heavy fuel in a hurry!

    It's not pretty but it hauls the wood and pushes snow. What more could you ask for.

    This type of wood barrow has some history. The community that I lived in in my childhood, had all the houses and the mill linked by boardwalks and these barrows were used for hauling firewood and just about anything else. The only difference between this modern version and the originals were that the originals had a metal wheel. Because they are narrow, they go through doorways with little problem.
    My father-in-law had little woodsheds scattered around his property so about thirty years ago I made him one of these. It turned the tide in my favor and I finally gained some acceptability.

    What a genius invention. I am going to copy your idea. I would love to be able to wheel it right in the door.
