Seems REAL spendy for what it is.

If you don't need a piece of equipment to pick it up, it can't be worth $460.

Interesting design. Unlike a log arch it is self braking; lifting the load for movement and dropping it as it slows to a stop.

I am sure Red Green could duplicate it for a lot less money. Maybe a couple of metal trash can lids and some duct tape...........

Save some $$$ and go to your local junkyard and get a hood or trunk lid off a small car, put a hole through the part thats off the ground and run a chain through from the wheeler too the logs. Did that for many yrs. before I got a logging winch for the tractor. The trunk lid from a '70's era Toyota works good.

There are not enough beer cans in the make-up of the Samurai hood to do the job.

A '47 Packard might-could work.

It's a simple, clever idea, no doubt.

I guess the spendy part is to be expected, it's a convenience item.

Besides in contrast to the $297.00 they want for about 6' of tubing to carry the skidder on your ATV, the $464.40 they want for a 27 pound steel plate and some grade 30 chain is not that bad. Rolling on the floor laughingMAO.

Best of luck.

I was thinking the same thing Murf. Looks like you could make the log skidder for under a $100 or for free if you have plenty of scrap metal laying around.

I was guessing about $100 too. You could make use of your tractor to produce that fancy bend by running over the steel plate placed over a rut. Smile
