I like the old Honda Foretrax pulling the trailer still working!
Thanks!!

That's our snow/mud/farm tank that I picked up 700ish about 10 years ago. It's slightly lifted, snorkled over the handle bars, custom 5G tank, winch that can be taken front to rear .... it'll go any where but your body gives up first cause, dahm is it ruff. Right now I have stock 25's and chains on but come summer it gets 28 10 & 12 Swamp Lites.

Got a load of wood from the farm, on Sunday, with the new 572xp. This is like THE way to do wood, IMO! Load it with the forks on the tractor, drag it home, cut it up on the trailer, then roll it off the trailer right onto the splitter. No bending over the splitter on the ground, no lifting wood up onto the splitter, etc.

When I post picts of me doing that on some sites, I'm told it doesn't work! It's waaaay too dangerous and much harder to do it that way! That I'm full of BS! lol

BUT, I keep on keeping on! It works VERY good!

It's a Canadian sold 1990 TRX 350D, still the same as the older 86 - 89 Foremans just only sold in Canada after 89 till 91. Ya it's a tank !! It'll pull what ever you can get enough traction to pull with it's monster 18 HP. I actually kinda feel bad for what I do to it ... but then it makes me walk funny for a day or two as my spine, knee's and shoulders recover from the ride we took across a mountain and back ... sooo I call it even !!

In my opinion it is the second toughest bike you can buy, only bested by a Honda 300 with a 350D rear diff cause the 300's were weak. With the 300 you get a faster, lighter bike, better gear choices and IFS so it's way smoother ... and I am looking for one that's not 3K around here. Some of the guys I ride with ride me hard when I bring out the Honda, then I stay with em all day, some time riding through what they couldn't and pulling them after ... and I still get told I'm riding a lawn mower ... SMH

The guy I bought it from figured he'd ripped me off but I had heard how tough they were and said, I'll run it till I kill it ... still going and I may treat it to front disk brake upgrade this year.

Old pic of it on 27's and fresh Gold painted rims, stacked with gear and fuel for 2 days ride into no where.

I would push you towards Rincon personally, really nice all around bike but because it's independent all around you won't be able to abuse it the way I do mine. It's not that it's not tough, but the IRS will sag under heavy weight, for pure work use, find your self a solid rear axle 420.

It absolutely works great! I suppose it could be a bit more dangerous, given that the trailer weighs more than double what my 5*8 does when full, but then, it's also worth at least 2 trips, so there's that. We didn't his last year as well, and it works great. Also works great when there isn't a tractor around and you just tilt the traiker and winch the 18' dogs up.

Yup ... that's the way to do it!! If the truck is heavy enough & trailer isn't over the GCW ... send it !!

Farm load's ... ya ... those can get wild ... see post #1 ...

I didn't fire the saw today as I had too much other things to do, eat lunch at 5, nap for 20 min ... do chores, unload a truck, empty a wheel barrow of ash ... but I'm running into a new problem ... I'm running outa room for wood to be split!! Ya once the snow goes I can add more pallets but till then I may have to hold off on hauling block wood.

IMG_0027[1].jpg
IMG_0028[1].jpg

I didn't burn a whole lot of split this year, the lil divot on the left, so I think I'll just throw some forward, and keep on piling up.

IMG_0030[1].jpg

Some one had asked how I measure height, pure simple redneck. I cut a length and screwed a broken hammer handle to the top, if it hangs above the top of the pallet base ... GTG.

Lefturnfreek, how many cord are you burning a year? Looks like you have a ton of wood. Is it mostly poplar?

I ran a 3 cord load last night after work. Fell, bucked, hauled out of woods with tractor, then hauled home on truck and trailer. I'll get a pic next time.

I bank on running through 9-12 C year but that depends on how much trash wood I can shove through the boiler in the shoulder seasons. It’s a older style OWB that heats a house plus a good size shop.

The area I am now stacking to is for 2 years from now. Each row will hold 25c easy.

Yes, it’s white and black poplar that is standing or fallen dead off my own property.

This year I started burning before Halloween, didn’t burn a good piece outa the stack till early December and stopped the good stuff about mid March, now back on trash.

This year i think it was 6-7 C cause I humped it... which is a good workout cause my paid job is mostly driving, think for a bit, twaddle some wires or electronics... go back to driving and drinking coffee, so this keeps me in shape.

Keep on .... Runnin’ Loads !!!
