After what seems like forever, I finally finished this unit for my Father-in-law. He does chain saw carving for a living and he needed a better way to load logs onto his trailer and also to stand up larger logs for carving, so I designed this. Just thought I'd put up these pics. Hope you enjoy them.

Here it is as I'm putting the finishing touches on it.

...And here it is on the tractor (a 50HP Long) at last.

You've been busy today!! It looks GREAT. Did the Hydraulics fight you at all? The angles look like they worked out fine (whew). You've posted pics, how about a parts list?:rolling:

PS Shouldn't that last sentence read "at Long Last?"Posted Image
