Rusted out parts that look weak.Thanks.
Yes, I built the arch. Works great! I was a little worried that it might be a bit on the flimsy side, but it lifted/pulled these logs just fine. Will get more detailed photos later.
Yes, I placed the arch over an area where there was good support. I intended to have a support underneath the trailer while loading, but I have to say, it was helpful to have the trailer dip down in the back so the logs could more easily come over the lip. Of course, I had some 2x12 boards which could have allowed it to slide up there, but didn't need to use them. Maybe I don't need to support the trailer underneath when lifting after all. What say ye?
I also fabbed a holder for my winch. I wasn't sure how it would hold up, but I thought I'd give it a try. Sorry - no pics of that right now either.
I did take a peek at everything underneath, but I really have no idea what to look for. Everything looked good to me. What should I look for?
