They use a trailer loader at the mill. Basically just a little gantry crane that you pull under, lift the trailer and back under it. Then when you get to the brush the shovel unloads it and you hook up the air lines, pintle hitch and open the mouse trap so you can pull a little bit of compensator out. Then you get loaded up. It's pretty quick really.

Glad I could help Chet. I was actually thinking about getting my lift straps in the right spot on one of the trucks I have and making a stop motion with the trailer loader I built.

Well, I haven't updated this in a little bit. I got some power saws from QuAd and had to paint them up as Stihls. I have also been working on the seven axle long logger, turning it into a pole truck. It can bunk 100' logs now. I have done a bit of work to the first 8T as well.















Thanks For Looking!

Thanks Zack! I need to figure out a good coating that looks like creosote to put on wooden dowels for power poles.

Thanks! They're just hacked up pull back toys. I wish someone would make some pickups in 1/50 besides the DCP silverados.

Hey Chet! So I finally am starting to figure this stuff out! Well, I'm doing what I can with a brain dead iphone4 and a half way decent iPhone 4S. I still need to get my movements more consistent but here's a short one on how the trailer gets piggyback at the mill.

Hey guys! Timberline Thinning Company finally moved into a new unit. The last logger walked away from it because the upper road washed out and they had it bid to log from the other end. Anyways, the land owner wants a road at the bottom after we get it logged.

It's a crappy road to load out on but it's all we've got.





Telling the driver to ease down the road for the rest of his load.



View from the tail hold. The ground is too loose to shovel log the draw.



The last wing log before the peaker.



The driver branding the load so he can head to the mill.



One of our cutters taking a break before the walk out.



The processor operator getting a breath of fresh air.



The 748 is having a hell of a time with this big wood and the mud.



Since the skidder didn't like the mud, we brought out the 8T to really pick up production. The waratah is cutting hazard trees.



I am also trying to figure out this stop motion thing, so here are a couple short ones I've been working on.

I know this is an old duo but are there any updates? Did you ever add the Vermeer tub grinder to your lineup?
