    Default Newest project

    New clearing job coming up in the spring. As soon as the snow melts. Low impact is going to be key. So I am building a log trailer to tow behind the ATV. Had a bunch of galvanized tubing laying around. Going to build it with walking beam axles. So far the parts list and costs are as follows...

    Set of ATV tires on rims-sort of free.(had to watch the guys house while he was away)

    Galvanized tubing. Free (got it in a pile of scrap)

    Axles and Hubs. $300 (includes shipping)

    Various drill bits and things (+/- $50)

    Its a work in progress, will update thread as the stages progress if anyone shows intrest.


    Still have a few things to aquire to complete it but its coming along alot faster than i thought it would.

    There will be alot of welding going on soon.

    Who knew drilling straight holes with cordless drill would be so hard.

    But the frame is coming together nicely. Hopefully get some of it welded tomorrow. Red wants to go to the Tack Shop and Tractor Supply. So maybe I will pick up the 2 inch coupler while I am there.

    Screw this drilling by hand crap. Taking the drill press home...should make life easier.

    Where did you find the axles and hubs? I been thinking of making something a long the same lines, I got a bunch of dead ash back in a swampy area that I want to remove. It's to far to carry and I'm afraid of taking my tractor that deep in the woods.

    GOG- to be clear these hubs didnt fit out of the box. Had to drill my rims. But they were free. So I drilled them. Northern has a good deal on rims, tires,hubs and axle kits.

    Do you have an ATV? In not, check out the logrite log arches. We sell them. You can get the small one for less than $600.


    Axles and hubs:

    I ordered both on Amazon.

    The hubs ship from "Southwest Wheel"

    The axles ship from Northern Tool.

    I just placed a second order for a couple more.

    Going to eventually build an arch for the real big stuff.

    I like that ATV arch but is out of my price range. If I find the right hub and tires I was planning on building something that would picking up the front part of the log and let the back drag the ground, I never thought of picking the whole log.

    The more you get of the log off the ground. The bigger the piece you can move. However, controling it can than be an issue. Its a fine line you are riding there. of course the more you get off the ground the less dirt you will have on the wood to be cut....

    Frame and carrier done. Working on attaching axles next. Would like to make it a sliding axle I think. May or may not work.

    Got back in the shop tonight after checking on a sick cow. Got the mock up completed. Need to drill a few more holes and add a weld here or there but for the most part its completed. Gonna add paint (Stihl-orange and white).
