Had a dead tree at the top of the driveway hillside. Dropped it before it fell in the driveway.

Used 2 snatch blocks, 200+ feet of wire cable to increase tractors pulling power 3X.

Saved 2 logs for lumber logs. B2650, LA534 loader and LP0660 grapple. FEL could not lift it. Curled grapple down to raise FEL lift arms, then curled grapple back to raise log off the ground. Log weight calc estimates 1466 lbs for a 20" 10.5' red oak log.

Quite a load you have there. Must be a good bit of counterweight on the back to keep the rear end down.

It's off the ground. Looks to me that you have a bit of capacity left! :ROFLMAO:

Curled grapple down to raise FEL lift arms, pressurized lift cylinders (would not lift it) then curled grapple back to raise log off the ground.
