I never seen a heal boom attachment for a skid steer before :laugh:

It works good thou for short wood I don't think you could heal any of the trees I deal with :canadaflag:

Post some more pictures :drinkup:

I need one of them, I got a job to get the trees that fell on the dam off and out of the pond with out hurting the trees on the land behind the pond...

You need good strong tilt cylinder(s) to to beable to heal the logs.

If you have short wood that is the best way of moving wood.

I just need a way to drag them off of the dam, the people want them cut as little as possible, I dont have any other way to get them off of the pond, just not enough room to cut them and haul them out with a grapple...

this is the company that makes them, the owner of company was along to try out his attachments and he will make a slight change so it works better yet to heal them:rolleyes: (i guess i needed to pile them up so i did it that way:))

Nice job

And they even make some with a built-on winch, those grapples really work great and are a lot of fun!!!

did you have the winch made by martach on the t190? seems like a good idea.

Yes that's right, wish i had some pictures of that machine yet, i didn't take them myself, he likely figured he would take pictures of best machine:laugh::laugh::laugh: (no offense meant)

The owner was very fussy sort of guy, he thought it would look like a battlefield after we were done, but he was very, very happy when we were done!!

hey!! :laugh: its good

What did you think about it? How did it do for dragging the wood out? I am thinking of maybe rigging something up like that for a tractor so I dont have to rent 2 pieces of equipment,

Worked really good!! (i didn't operate it myself but watched a few times) he would winch them to trail (to save small trees) then i would drag them out to the landing (i had 2-speed so i did that) boy what fun!!! Martatch does makes those grapple's with a winch built onto them (all-in-one type of thing) :rolleyes::)

not to hijack but here is some b.c. interior logging clean up from this past summer, that I did.
Pic 1. there was a road that i rehabed through that block, you can olny tell were it was becuase of the flipped stumps. Then in the distance is the same block( it was a couplr hundred acres) And i had pilied all the slash piles.
Pic 2 Shows a decompacked landing, and two roads that where put to bed the day before. you will be hard pressed to find those roads.
Pic 3 shows a gmc work truck....i had to put that in there after someone had mentioned gm's are junk off road....we got have had ov 20 of them and never had problems.
Pic 4 Shows my site prep, clean up chariot... hyundai 210lc-3 high walker forestry excavator.
Pic 5 Shows another view of pic 2, you can see the two roads that were rehabbed and the block in which i was up to the counterwieght in mud"gardening" as we call it, cleaning up skidder and buncher ruts in the mud.
We are road side loggers meaning we use skidders, in which someone in this board says is not used anymore..?
I would put up my own thread of pics, but it would just get ridiculed by a board member, because of the stuff we do, and how he has said they dont do that in b.c., although we have been doing it longer that he has been alive, so i have not yet.

btw can anybody guess this member?

just a correction (i could not edit 10 mins after to correct and add thing)
Pic 5 shows a road that is half rehabed.

I thought that nobody was logging up north any more?

Nice pics everyone. Back in the day I got to do some skidding with a 1845c and chokers on full length pine, got good at backing up. Any one ever do any select cutting with a skid shear or saw? Is there such thing is a skid processing head?

There is a big difference bettween coastal logging and interior logging.

This is a example of Coastal logging

That is west coast logging those roads are common there are steeper roads than that.

The forestry dept is getting more regulated on road size so now tridrive highway trucks are used offroad. You haul less wood than a Haye HDX but the roads don't need to be 20 feet wide.

If you guys watched the show AX-men that is old style and slow logging practices. For one the loads the truck hauled are small. The yarding pracices using a cable car is old style not used much at all in B.C. Its still logging but its not production logging that is 1960s-1970s logging practices.

Just curious,overall how would you say that T190 performed in bush versus Cat (tight spots) (fuel ratio versus the Cat)?

i would say the Cat took a bit more fuel, but then again i was running wide open most of the time while T190 was idling more when hooking cables on etc. as for tight spots i would say they were very much the same....:canadaflag:

The Cat has a 23 gallon tank and the Bobcat a 28 gallon tank, both would be identical engine sizes (3.3 and 3.34) They would be close in a balls out job, but if you play with the throttles, it can get even closer.
Just like my Cat/Bobcat, 17 versus 28 gallon tanks, I am still tanking up near the end of the day, but there is nearly 11 gallons less going into the tank.

Watch ironplanet auctions, occasionally they have sets come up. You can also call loegering and see if they have any used sets - that's where I got mine at less than half the cost and the tracks are 80% plus.
