I think a lot of folks would mess themselves if they got to ride in a woodhauler on some of our woods roads around here. Even a lot of OTR drivers. "You're driving a truck in THERE?!?" They tend to get a little hairy with the icy hills, corners, and tight spots. It's what makes hauling wood interesting though, it gets a little boring cruising down the highway.

The day before, this woodhauler went off the road on the icy curve just beyond where  the picture was taken. The driver just missed a large black cherry tree and it was lucky that he only ended up on flat ground in a a red pine plantation of small trees. He was stuck pretty good though and had to call out the skidders for some help. More lost time on the last load at the end of the day.

(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

It was an accident somewhat similar to this that outlawed leaving open holes from digging for gravel along woods roads here. A Feller Buncher ended up submerged on it's roof after going across an unmarked open pit hole in the winter. If memory serves me right the operator actually drowned.

HahnHarvesters have been around here for at least 30 years. They usually had 2 operators, 1 for delimbing & 1 for either cutting or shearing. "Piece of advice" I've never seen anyone upgrade after owning one of these. It's kind of like the Ponsse curse. It will either make you rich or destroy you within 2 yrs.

Naw, if it was me, I'd have got all the wheels under water. No sense in going in part way.

Something like this:
