    Storing Tractor Implements

    Since this thread is Tractors and Wood, I will show the tractor unloading the logs and since there are so many sawmill conversations, also showing the mill lifting it into place. Love this mill.

    Here are some picks of using the snatch block to pull up the logs. Because I had the 4x4s on the trailer, I was able to pull from underneath of the other logs. Love this setup.

    Dual Axle 14' Equipment Trailer
