used to haul logs on one of the hay bale wagons, but they are fairly big
wagons and getting the logs off them is a chore. In the summer of
2003 I decided to build a dedicated trailer.
Here are the basic components of the trailer. The deck is going
to be 8 feet wide by 15 feet long. I bought the axels at a salvage
yard and the steel at a used steel outfit.
main frame is together with the axels in place.
crossmembers are on and I am starting on the stake pockets.
got the hitch installed. All that is left is to build a platform in
the hitch to haul the chainsaws and the gas and oil on. I didn't install a
floor on it to make so I can slip the forks under the logs and lift them
We haul about 30 14" diameter, 8 foot long logs
per trip, or 20 10 footers on this trip.
also use this trailer to haul home trees to use as firewood.
