Did this video help you?

spawn dukes: Thats all well and good but it looks like whatever he is doing is going to take all day.

charlie brown: looks like it s hard to load the truck with that lift

Bobby John: Excellent let's someone with a blown back actually do something and feel productive. Great Idea!

uuyittn: did i mention i really like this video

Tristan102100: so you can use a dragging mat

ph12345boy: Well, I do like the lifter. anything that saves the back is a plus in my book. After watching your video a second time, I noticed the chain in the hook trick.

Ed Heerlein: @RedneckPeg, Because I am hauling them to a small saw mill I have, to cut them into boards!!

OfficialHankIII: Thx for the tip

ph12345boy: Got an idea. you need one more winch at the top corner to pull the raised load towards the truck, then slack up on the boom winch and lower the load onto the forks.

Ed Heerlein: At least. That was abt all the winch can handle. Anything bigger and I use the tractor.

Andrew Walsh: @realnbcbed if you put the forks on a incline it would do most of the work for ya.... just an idea.

Ed Heerlein: Never heard of or saw a dragging mat. Don't matter. When I load the trailer with this and make 1 trip with 10-15 logs, I feel like I saved time! Specially when all of what I do is not on 1 property. Think the law would frown on me dragging them down the interstate!

marc benoit: i like this idea....i use winch all the time on my atv....i have bush...wish i owned a tractor....lol .strap bike to a large tree, use pulleys and straps and with right pulleys i have used 2000 lbs winch to move wet 25[ by 50" at base..large wet old pine 90degree up and down a ravine..point would be the weight on the back of truck...do the load wheels work ok for you....i have an idea of what i would do there...nice stuff any how...just thought i would say so

CARL SHOWALTER: PRETTY SLICK,HOPE YOU PATENTED THE RIG

falouchelo: faster to laod it with your wood picks and your amrs lol but for older people who love forestry this is a really nice machine, good made buddy

Ed Heerlein: @ph12345boy Actually, in the video you can see me pulling on the chain while the log is in the air and hooking it back just below the winch. We fixed that without another winch. It is easy to adjust to each size log. We raise bottom of the log to a couple inches above the forks and hold the chain up to the frame just under the end pully, the lenght of chain at that point is the link that should be hooked into the hook under the winch!

Praetorian27: That is awesome...good for you!

jsimp2861: Do you have a plans and parts list for this? I would love to build one to use to pick up firewood and load it onto my trailer. Great idea.

Ed Heerlein: Makes it tough to use a sawmill on it with all the dirt that picks up! Dulls the blades almost as fast as a nail!

Tristan102100: yeah,i guess so,haha!

Ed Heerlein: I am using a cheep 3000lb winch I got at Harbor Freight

TLein0718: If you notice, at about 0:20 there's 2-3 deer that come up behind you, 2 leave and cross the road at about 1:00

fgh dv: hahaha

OfficialHankIII: What kind of winch is are you using to pull?

kenfo0: that is silly.

eddiequest4: With all of these wonderful, creative log cutting/splitting machines I see, it's a shame trees don't grow any faster.

Tristan102100: all i see here is time consumtion just chain it up and drag it not like it is solid gold

prasklina: to je ale pitomost

Ed Heerlein: Thanks, I don't loose any sleep over them for sure! ;)

profoil1: co to za debil ????

Ed Heerlein: profoil1.. I don't know what you are asking.

MountainDweller67: Great design in general, though!

Dusty Rhodes: If you secured your chain directly over the forks, the log would swing to that point, instead of falling short of the forks.

Ed Heerlein: To some, I am sure it is. Would take way more time then cutting say firewood into 16" pieces and then loading them, taking that to the wood pile and stacking it. Wouldn't be any faster or easier than trailering 10 - 12 foot logs to the wood pile cutting and stacking there now would it?

wannacboi: Wow, that must be about a 500lb. log, huh?

Ed Heerlein: @ph12345boy Thanks!

StevesProjects: @realnbcbed Its Polish. They said "what an idiot". In my opinion, they have obviously never got off their arse and tried making anything like this. If they had they would appreciate your efforts a lot more. Well done, does what you wanted it to do and looks good to boot. Thumbs up. Homemade is BEST!

Ed Heerlein: @TLein0718 U got good eyes boy.. I see them NOW! Thanks!

sbc388550: Too time consuming.

Ed Heerlein: @jsimp2861 email me realnbcbed@yahoo.com

Alan Ward: Design the bottom forks to fold up, lift the log past them till they fall, then lower it. Eliminates all the chaining.

MountainDweller67: Get you some smaller or larger square tube than those legs are, drill the tube and legs for pins, and have extendable lower legs with clevis pins to just collapse them in when lifting, extend them out when stowing. Would really save you the risk of being under that boom close to the cable, in case it breaks.
