    Finally snapped some pics...

    trailer holds just shy of 1/2 a cord, towed my my '99 Olds Bravada
    [​IMG]

    Trusty '89 S-10, which is sadly no longer road worthy so it is a woods truck only.

    And just because, a sheep pic...

    I don't have any road through my woods, so this setup is narrow enough to get through.

    There's our wood hauler parked at a limb staging area. Trees are dragged there and limbed, the bigger limbs get hauled away with the logs..smaller limbs are just piled up.

    I bought this little trailer for $25 and spent another $25 getting a proper hitch and fixing a tire. It works great for clearing out messes near gates and fence rows. The 13 year old does not mind pulling it around but every now and then I find tire tracks in odd places.

    The Ford F550 does the hauling, the Kubtoa L39 does the loading among other duties

    Its nice to grab the rounds others cant handle -

    and I then split them with the Northstar 37 ton

    what size John Deere is that in the background?
    Do you use the backhoe much? do you like it?
    I have thought about buying one for my 4600

    Its a John Deere 2520 series - its smaller than the Kubota, but was my go to machine until the arrival of the L39 Kubota.
    The backhoe on the 2520 is good and powerful for its size (6.5 ft depth) -but the larger hoe on the L39 gets the bulk of the work these days because its faster and easier, and with that less wear and tear for a smaller machine. However when space prevents the larger unit, then its back to the Deere 2520 w/46BH

    Has anyone thought about mounting a splitter on a trailer so you can pull both at one time? I dreamed up a design but I wonder if its been done already.

    Well my Dad has something like this . . . only he has the splitter (a home-built one he made years ago that runs off the Kubota's hydraulics) sitting in front of the trailer . . . which is in reality an old horse-drawn manure spreader. It looks funky since the splitter is at a 90 degree angle to the trailer/manure spreader, but it actually works pretty well for my Dad -- and the best part is that since it is a manure spreader when he gets to where he wants to be he can engage the manure spreader's unloading mechanism and easily ratchet the wood to the back end of the trailer. Some day if I think of it I'll have to take a photo -- a very strange looking contraption.

    Well, might as well throw up a pick of one of my haulers. For over the road I hook up my big blue dodge and 5x10 trailer. But for weird stuff this thing gets where others stop.

    Its a 4x (true 4x, no hard roads), but it doesn't have a dump. Its a little jeep with big axles. Slow, kinda loud, and rough riding thing, but I have had to back up and hook onto trucks and give them a yank, when I have already drove through it. I think the darn thing could climb a wall.

    Threw a ball on the mower and use the same trailer I use for the jeep. This is what I use for yard work and the picture shows a load of free wood from a neighbor across the street that he has rotting out back. I think I can get another two to three loads like that.
