    2003 Polaris Big Boss. 5 loads equals a cord. Liked it so much, I bought another one as a spare!

    I built this out of scraps left over from a recent construction project; seems like it may actually hold together.

    That is quite a a load there. I'm guessing it is PNW soft wood.

    Wood harvest and the old truck hobby 100_1655.JPG go hand in hand. My 1956 Ford F-350 and a jag of future warmth.

    Nice F350 oldogy. Here's a more current shot of my '70 F350.

    Do you have any pictures of the hoist and underside of the bed? My '70 has the same bed, but no hoist. I'm curious how your's is set up.

    Here is a picture of the hoist. I have a 1949 Ford F-4 purchased, just awaiting delivery. It, too has a hydraulic hoist.

    Does the hoist attach right to the wood framing or is there some added steel?

    Yup. That big a load of hardwood would kill my Ford.

    There is a steel sub frame welded to the truck frame with the cylinder afixed thereto. There is a movable frame that the wood bed stringers fit and bolted into.

    What's that white 70's ford in th backround? I'm fond of that vintage sheet metal, especially the old "high boy" 250 prior to 77-1/2 (i think)
