Large Logs

A self loader and a shovel working together to load logs.Two pieces of equipment were needed to load the heavy logs onto a self-loader log truck.

The truck would pick up the front of the log while the shovel would pick up the back of the log.

The two would lift and set the log into place inside the bunks of the log truck, where the load would be cabled and cinched tight before the logs could be trucked out of the landing.

When one log could hold 1,000 board feet of timber and weigh up 20,000 pounds, double teaming the stick makes good sense.
