After some months of problems with my log trailer (everything that could of gone wrong did go wrong!) Bar the chassis and wheels it’s a new trailer.
If anyone needs some advice on buying an old horse trailer to convert, I’m your man to ask for what to look for haha.
Anyhow, this is my first time out getting some oak logs with this method, didn’t go smoothly but none the less it worked! Took 12 mins, but was my first attempt.
I can’t help but think this design the likes of Matt Cremona etc use (Where I got this idea from) isn’t the best it can be.
In my head the idea is just like a skip lorry, now the lifting arch isn’t at the back on these skip lorries, it’s about a third in from the rear.
With the lifting arch at the end you have to move the chains about resulting in three lift/pulls, you don’t have that with a skip lorry - but I’m no engineer…
If the arch was further back surely the lift and pull would be done in one motion and bring the whole log onto the trailer in one go?
Any engineers out there that would like to throw they’re expert opinion in?
I’m thinking of having the lifting arch moved, just not 100% sure… 🌲🤟😎🤟🌲 #trailers #logtrailer #urbanlogging #oakwood #log #madeintheuk #woodartist #woodporn #handmadefurniture #furniturecustom #woodworkers #woodworkingtools #furnituredesigner
