A 20' log 8" to 4" would tip over 200#
That's a lot of anchor in contact with the ground. Especially with an LT
Might be better at 10'?

If you can't make a logging arch right away something like a stone boat or sled would work, just make sure in has a turned up nose on it. Cut a slot or hole in the middle of the the nose and run the chain you have on the tree through it. Once you have the log pulled on the stone boat or sled, hook a short chain to the sled to make it and the log attached as one unit. The sled will help guide the log over any obstacles. Should look something like this; ========________/--------- (===log) (______/stone boat or sled) (------chain).

If I understand this correctly, you want to go have fun with your tractors while doing something that offsets the cost. Before I would go get or build anything. I think I would go cut a tree down and see how your tractor can handle say, a 8-10' log in your setting. If it does good, then try a longer log. Once you do a few, you will have a much better feel for what you want and what works best.
