Skidding Logs out

Posted: April 25, 2014 in Falling/Peeling Trees

IMG_1821 2We used a dozer to skid the logs for the first two days.  Day three we used my jeep…fun!  I got to drive instead of set chokers.  For those of you who don’t know what a choker is…its usually a cable…you loop around the end of the log then connect to your jeep or dozer.  Sometimes I would set three chokers at once.  Then have to drag three chokers back down to the fallen trees to do it all over again.  Each choker weighed maybe 15 lbs.  All day was quite the test.  Again also… satisfaction.
