That's a really nice looking cleanup job, Bargemonkey!  What do you like about the G model dozers? My dozer experience is pretty limited, I'm just curious about the differences between the series.

 Yeah, off to the MT to finally get this woodlot wrapped up. Not where I wanna be.
 That G dozer has a complete deere factory woods package, added weights in the front, just a nice machine. Im a powershift fan, the J's are single lever hydro, great for dirt work but im just not a fan with one in the woods.

I don't think its a F model. I have seen one before and its smaller. The boom is only 15ft long. It will still lift a good sized log... as long as the motor stays runnin :D

Sent a couple loads today figured I'd snap a couple pics. First one is loading a load of oak tops a guy is buying for firewood.
 
And a load of logs.

U r pretty darn close for not being sure. :-) Nice load. That truck bed looks longer than typical but maybe it is just the angle of the pic. R they all 8's?

Thats a nice load of wood, now we all know who's got the money around here.  ;)   unless im shipping to bailies or a buyer, the mill im dealing with wants nothing over 12' with trim now. Works out better for me. I like the idea of stacking the 8's sideways, my bunks just arent set up for it. Have you worn that Clark out yet ?
