I went out to the barn over the weekend with all intentions of removing the battery from the Satoh for the winter. This thing is very hard to start in cold weather so I usually take the battery out and put it in the basement for the winter to keep it warm. It was pretty mild out do I plugged it in for a while and fired it up to charge the battery before taking it out. I decided to take it for one last ride before winter sets in and set off thru the woods. I noticed I had lost a few trees since I was last back there so I elected to keep the battery in and I had planned to drag the trees in after work today. This is my plow tractor but it's also my firewood skidding machine. The thing is a beast as anyone that has attended the Plow Days in Renfrew could tell you. The trees were down over a steep hill but the ground froze pretty good overnight so I decided to try. Took three chains to reach the tree but I took it out in 4 parts. This tractor has a pretty low center of gravity and it just squats down and pulls these things up over the hill. Thank goodness the brakes are great and it holds fine on the side of the hill. Below are some shots back in the woods and the last one is half of the day's spoils. After all the OT I've been working behind a computer, it sure felt good to get out there and skid some logs.
