I've learned from personal experience it is impossible (even with four wheel drive) to effectively pull logs any good distance without lifting. That's why I've designed a cost effective way to get logs off the ground for people like you. This implement can do the same job as more expensive skidders but at a lower price because its built much simpler.
It will allow your tractor to gain traction by getting the weight on the rear wheels and avoiding ground damage. It comes with pins and the shackle (all you need is a chain). I have this attachment in orange, black, green (as pictured).
Pins are made in India for a American company. S sources available that I can find that makes them in USA.
(ask about cat 2 bushings). Constructed with heavy (3/16") 2x2 inch steel tubing and (3/8") 2 inch Flat Bar. Comes with upper pin (3/4 inch), lower two pins (7/8 inch) and three lynch pins (7/16 inch). (Short chain is not included) Dimensions: Lower pins, end to end 29 3/4.
