3 Point Hitch Log Skidder attachment on a small tractor  

Whether you own a forest tract, a wood lot, or a hobby farm, you need good tools to help you manage your valuable timber resource, whether it's for pre-commercial thinning, timber maintenance, firewood production, or wild fire fuel reduction. Our specialty is designing tools for simple low-cost operation and maintenance for equipment owned by small land parcel owners. When it comes to caring for your valuable timber resource, think Small Wood Lot Tools.

Shown here, mounted on a 16 HP Kubota, is our log-skidder attachment designed to fit on a small to mid-size tractor with a category 1, 3-point hitch. It will allow you to pick up, pull out, and drop logs 6 to 22" in diameter without ever leaving your tractor seat.

No more fighting thickets of blackberry vines and poison oak/ivy!

NEW! We've been REVIEWED - "A New Log Skidder Design" in the February 2015 issue of Independent Sawmill & Woodlot Management magazine.

Limbing a fallen Douglas fir held off the ground using the log skidder




  Not only can you haul logs out of the woods easily,
  but by grabbing the log in the middle you can lift it off the ground to limb it.

An entire log can be cut without your chain saw bar touching the ground, 
saving you hours of chain sharpening.
