    I know I saw a post on this before and found it enjoyable. If you do not mind putting up a picture of your wood hauler it would be appreciated. I got this new (used) toy this year to help with clearing some land and putting in some trails. It also makes for a great wood hauler. My terrain is so steep around here that my Yamaha ATV struggles with pulling up a trailer load of wood. My Bobcat T190 rather enjoys it. I now have some attachements like forks with a grapple and a tooth bucket. I think I will be hauling logs and clearing land for quite awhile. You might notice the Bobcat is sitting on gravel. That was my first project, I leveled a hill behind my driveway pad and put in a circular driveway while leveling some land. I am having fun.

    I surely could put that machine to work for a few days around here. That should really come in handy for you.

    Nice skid loader you got there GolfandWoodNut! I believe you when you say you are having fun. Besides being extremely useful, they are a lot of fun.

    Here are my haulers:

    Quads it looks like you can haul as much with your Quad as you can with the Jeep. I can only haul that much with my Quad when I get the wood to the pavement. I know it is alot flatter where you live. Pittsburgh is the city of bridges, and it is that way for a reason, hills everywhere.

    I can! In those pictures there is less wood in the truck than what is on the trailer. I don't normally load the trailer that high though, but it was one of those 'last load of the day' situations. No split left behind!

    High crime rate North of 60? I see you lock up your wood in a chain link compound.

    Here they are with one addition, we needed a truck for plowing so the Ford 250 Super Duty XL was the choice. Once the older green truck goes down the Ford will become one of the wood haulers.

    Bought this trailer for $500 and put $500 in to it. It hauls 1.3 cords at a pop. No weight on the truck because that is a 10' tongue!

    Here's mine. The '70 Ford works on the road and the wheelbarrow at the house.

    I hope to get a cart for the Cub Cadet soon so I cam move more at a time than I can with the wheelbarrow.

    EDIT:
    I bought a cheapo Craftsman cart on sale last week. It sure beats using the wheelbarrow!

    That's a pretty good jag you got on there. I used to load up my wheelbarrow that way before I got my cart.

    I was thinking of getting a HF trailer like quads has so I can haul more. Sometimes I borrow my neighbor's ATV cart.
