Title: Takes a lickin' keeps on tickin'
Post by: Tamiam on February 24, 2017, 10:46:50 am
This week we received a phone call about a broken Fetching Arch.  We thought this was highly unlikely and it piqued our interest.  Yesterday, the gentleman woke up early and drove the arch all the way from OH to our facility in CT.  Here are the before and after pics.

the Tow tongue is slightly bent

The frame is twisted so the wheel is almost rubbing on the handle.

We asked how this could happen.  The arch was in water and it ran up on a rock.  I can't imagine how fast he was going to cause this but it is fixable.
First the tow tongue.

Then a little cutting, some genuine Logrite parts and a little time and she's as good as new.

I wonder what size log he was hauling and what he was pulling that with.  :o

It looks like a very handy rig. I'v been telling a friend of mine about them. He has a 2016 Honda Rancher. He was thinking of getting a old Skidder to do some firewood on his 40. I think for his needs,one of them would work good for him.

The gentleman said it was underwater and he couldn't see the obstruction.  He must have been movin'.

Logger RK  - have him give us a call
