Found this on CL recently.

This just seems wrong.

That's pretty cool, definitely needs a lot of rear ballast! :D

I'm thinking photoshop. REALLY can't see the front axle/wheels/bearings taking that kind of abuse. The weight of the boom alone is questionable, add much of a log and we're deep in "I don't think so, Tim" country.

He has a lot of iron hanging on a little B5200 frame, but the most appalling action is the weld on the ROPS!

Bingo.

Definitely photoshopped.

That looks like an Ash log ~14" diameter probably 8' which would weigh ~500 pounds.

How much would the boom/hardware weigh?

That's a substantially heavier and longer boom than on my backhoe. All in, I'd guess 2000lbs extra on that tractor. Creative, though. I wonder about the lateral stability...
