About 1.2 miles down the road, (very rural area), there have been two large red oak logs sitting there for a couple months. About 10' off the road. No houses nearby the wood. Closest house about 500' away. So, I decided to do a snatch and grab. Brought the Kioti NX4510 over with front grapple and 5x10 trailer. One log was 42"diam, x 13'6" long. The other was 25" diam, x 10' long. Head over there with my brothers MS660 in tow. Cut the bigger log in 3 sections and the smaller log in half. Load the 2 small log halves onto the trailer and grapple a third of the big log. Everything's going smooth, until about half way back home some ******* comes up the road dead in the middle going about 50mph. Speed limit is 25mph. Hit the brakes, and out pops the big log from the grapple. I'm on a slight downhill stretch. Log is continuing to roll down the road. I'm praying a car isn't coming. Rolls about 200' and stops. I was able to grab it and quickly head home to change my pants. Wife asks if anything I've done is illegal. No honey, of course not!!! Why do you ask? Oh, because I saw a DOT truck nearby with lights on. Uh oh. I quickly unloaded and took my truck over to the site to see what was going on. No DOT truck, nothing. Went back home. Worked on the logs for awhile, and about 2 hours later went back to retrieve the remaining two sections of the big log. After checking that the DOT or DPW or police weren't there. This time, I strapped the logs down to the grapple and rear 3 point fork. Didn't take the trailer this time. Made it home and am happy everything worked out. Thank goodness my house is far off the road and out of sight.
