Harvesting logs with a Jonsered Iron Horse

woodhacker's picture

Just wondering if there are others out there using a Jonsered Iron Horse for retrieving logs. I've been very impressed with what this little machine can do with only a 5 hp engine, able to navigate where it would be unsafe or impossible to use a tractor.  I've hauled out logs 18" in diameter and close to 16 feet in length. Log shown in picture is only about 12 inches at the butt end, but over 35 feet long. I'd be interested in seeing ideas that others have come up with for accessories for their Horse. Right now I'm working on the design for a "fifth wheel" type trailer that could be used with the cargo bed in place so as to avoid having to switch back and forth between the cargo bed and log bunk configuration.

I just picked one of these up for trade on some cabinet work.  I can't wait to get out and haul some juniper home.  Any idea where I can find info on parts or accessories?  thanks
