Logging Operation with the PSD w/pics

This weekending I finished all the fab work and on my trailer so I could do some real work with it.

I fab up and mounted a 16.5k Superwinch, wired quick connects to the rear so I could run the winch, installed a toolbox on the trailer, and installed a dual jack set up on the trailer.

Anyway It's first trial was to hall about a cord of wood. Used the winch to haul up the logs on to the trailer, works slick with our logging cone, couldn't have done it with out it.

Even though the the winch is massive at 16.5K I still almost stalled it on one 16ft Oak log, you really need a straight pull and you're all set.

The worst part of the day was when my truck busted a fuel line connection and sprayed diesel EVERYWHERE, got a nice diesel bath on the undercarriage

Any way enjoy the photos.

Never seen a set up like this. Looks like it works well. Never seen a cone like that before. I plan to show this thread to a good friend of mine who's dad use to work in the logging industry in Maine and Upstate NY sharpening saw blade teeth many years ago. Pretty cool...thanks.

What a coincidence I'm from Maine, I pretty much thought up the set up myself, and fabbed it up.

The cone is from a company called NOVAJACK, they make small scale log equipment, the cone is actually designed for ATV logging use, but will work with any type of pull cable, just run the chocker chain around the log, through the cone and pull away.

Here's a link to there site.

If I had my choice I would have a full solid flat gate on the trailer, other than my ramps that I have, it would make it even easier.

I'll let you in on a little secret, I picked up that trailer for $2800(not bad seeing as how a 14gvw goose normally goes for nothing under 5k), it's 3 years old, paint on it is going so I plan on sand blasting and repainting the whole thing, but I need to buy a bigger compressor to run my sandblaster Next year I'll do the bearings and the brakes, it'll be a new trailer at that point

But with the Winch, Toolbox, Dual Jacks, and steel for Fab work, I probably have another 1500-1600 in it.

Have more plans for it too. 4ft tall removable steel stake pocket rails so I can load it right up with wood, and a removable mount for a snatch block on the rear of the trailer, so I can redirect the cable and do all straight line pulls right to the back of the ramp.
