    What you need is a hard hat liner like this. No more snow down the back of your neck.

    Happy New Year everyone.

    Better you than me. I have enough problems with one woman, and she likes me! Now, the oil well idea has potential..

    No oil wells in Vermont.
    But they produce syrup, lots of it.
    The Sultan of Syrup?

    Really ... when I saw that head gear on the broom my first thought was if I were a crow I wouldn't go anywhere near a field with that dude standing in it.

    And Piston is right, you take some great pictures in your woods, Gordon. I think it's your combination of light, beautiful land and skillful composition.
    That's the problem with trouble.

Seems like the trailer would be in the way while you were cutting and repositioning for the initial winch out of the woods and onto the trail unless you can fill the trailer from one spot.

    I have modified my trailer. Removed side boards and middle stake. . So I lift the logs on using my logging winch. There is a steel arch that the hydraulic cylinder was attached to work the dump. I chain a pulley to the top of this arch, run the winch cable through. I use the logging winch to hoist the logs up onto the trailer.

    As for staging the logs.. Sometimes I do and sometimes i just winch the tree trailer side cut it up 8 feet and winch them on. The trailer is licensed for the road so I disconnect from tractor and connect it to the truck and haul it home.

    I have a boom that will swing out over side. Just never attached it to the trailer yet.

    As for trailer being in the way I park the tractor on a bit of an angle the cable runs along side trailer. Sometimes I run the cable through the pulley and winch from there. Not much tipping after the trailer has 500 pounds of logs on.

    Ps. I upgraded my tractor to a L4740 kubota.
