I build a wooden crane with a log tongue for better leverage. It will allow me to pick up. See avatar. I can pick and carry with a lawn tractor. The only issue is it tend to lift on the back end or the tractor. If I built one for logs only I would set it up so the weight is between the tractor and wheels so it will add to traction. A arch design where you back up over the log and lift from the center of the lift.

The advage of my design is that I can lfit up to 14 feet (boom on top) or pick up and carry and put the item in a building

just a throught

Welcome to the forum, Dan! I don't think anyone would care if you posted a couple pics of it here. We're looking for ideas and if yours works good for you, post away. Help with pics can be found here:
