    Those specs are a lot like our dingo.
    You might find you can heel boom with the grapple. We can wit ours on tree tops and smaller logs.
    I recommend getting a set of forks for it till you can save for a log grapple. Bigger nuggets and logs are more easily moved with a set. Not badly priced..
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    We talked about forks but passed on them and I kind of regret not getting them. Maybe we can just get some of those clamp on forks that just attach onto the bucket.

    Clamp ins move your weight too far out. Forks are cheap and will pay for themselves imho

    First job with the loader and it worked great! We took two trailer loads out and never once raised my heart beat. It's not perfect, but way better than nothing.

    Nice feeling, it can change afternoons from hemorrhoid busting misery to a nice sit down in the winter sun.

    Jeezlus, that looks fun!
    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Looks like a nice load of hickory. Definatly beats carrying it out by hand.
