Here's some pics of my rig. The snow came in and drove me out but I did manage to get one rack (1/2 cord) filled with yellow birch and also pulled down a leaner that I had created. The idea behind my concept is to handle the wood once. Cut split and stack. Strap down to keep secure and take it on home. Once home I have caster boats that pin onto the fork pockets. I wheel; into the basement and carry up top the fireplace as needed.

What brand and size forks are you using? I'm thinking of getting a set for my 3520. It seems like the frontiers are very heavy for this size machine, any suggestions?

That is a nice set-up you have there. What a nice outdoor activity. Those pictures looks great with all that snow coming down. Thanks Kennedy for sharing.:)

Nice set-up! I have used apple crates before, they work great as well. Also apple wharehouses have caster frames you set them on then they can be wheeled around. I bought a bunch at auction, makes packing and moving stuff easier.

Skid steer quick attach and skid steer forks. No they are not light, but they are tough and have a nice headache rack.

Notice the bucket in one pic and the forks in another. I'd hate to fumble with pins out in the snow/woods.

nice setup, I like to cut wood this time of year, arthritis is slowing me down.

My lower back is questionable many days so when I go I need to get it done. Worst part about working in the snow is there is a middle crust so walking absolutely sucks, Step, support, break through crust repeat...

Nice setup. Looks like fun, but I know that you get good and wet handling firewood when it is snowing. :)

Do you have pics of the frame for stacking wood?
Might look closer at that idea for handling my unsplit wood from tree tops. Presently place two pallets at the ends and tie them together with 1/4" threaded rod.

Have a lot of used well pipe that I might be able to put to good use too. :)

I'm not sure I follow. Looking for pics of my racks when empty?
