After being out of sorts for a long while. I am finally getting caught back up on some of my honey do's. Cleaned out the shop today and backed my trailer in to mount a lift for loading wood. Plans are to make a boom with hyd lift and a winch for loading logs in 10ft lenghts. Kinda looking for ideals of how others have done this. I have a floater type dual wheel axle tube I will use to make the swivel. My dump trailer has a D3 subplate with 12vdc solenoide control valve. I plan on swapping the subplate to use two solenoids, one for the dump bed and one for the boom lift. I will also be adding a 12vdc winch, probably a 8000lb winch, to the boom. I want to mount the boom on the trailer tongue so I can load on the truck as well as the trailer. I think I know what I want to do, but would like to see what ideals others have done and what they do or dont like about their setup.
