I know for a fact it will bolt to your 3304.  Might have to move the air tank and modify the floor door. But where are we gonna put the TCU?

I seem to remember the air tank being under the floor door at least on some 518 s ?    But have not seen a 518 in person in about 15 years.  Transmission control unit.

I miss the day in day out photos that used to be posted here.  Just ordinary stuff that we do.  So I'll put some of my small potatoes stuff on to get the thread back up.

Started cutting some fir. The long ones are 47 footers, give me two 10's and two 12's each

 

 

This is what I call a load - 545 BF of 10's and 12's on my 2001 Ram 3500

 

 

Today I recycled an old skid trail with to much side hill for the tractor into a tractor road. Dozer is a Dresser TD7G.

Nice little dozer, I am going to put that on my wish list. ;D

Happy b day g_man
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

This one and Timber harvest methods are 2 of my favorites on this board.

I think that 500 to 600 ft on a 1 ton is a good load. I usually try to haul 800 to 1000 ft on my 1 ton and tandem dual gooseneck trailer. I took it to the woods last Thursday to get a load for my logger and we put 8 ten ft post oak logs on it and I couldnt hardly move. Then I couldnt hardly stop. I barely made it up the last hill before my place. Got it unloaded and scaled it at just over 1400 ft. 800 ft is enough.

I'd second that about weights on a 1 ton pickup.  Friends have 2 blown ford f250 with that crappy ford 6.0l diesel.  What a POS that engine is.  Anyhow, one died because he was towing 10k pounds from Ohio to Va, that long 6% grade in MD just killed him.

10K lbs is only half a load.

10k pounds was enough of a load that it killed that lousy ford 6.0l diesel.  All the local ford dealers in the Shenandoah valley/north VA are just full, full of FX50s with that engine all blown to crap, bad injectors or whatever.  Not meaning to hijack thread but just saying I'd agree with Paul that it makes sense for safety and wear and tear to not overload your truck/trailer combo.

New head gaskets, head studs, and some emissions removal and the 6.0 is a good motor.

Yep. And can handle 20-30k if handled right.

ahh well they are blown now, emissions removal... that is an issue.  the Hino is solid and does not blink, both guys moved on to cummins.  After seeing the ford dealers repair bays... swore me off of ford trucks.

Old trucks from now on for me.  Last load was 1300bf.  23,500 of timber, 42,200 total.   With 13speed and exhaust brake i can almost entirely avoid the service brakes.  Big hills, panic stops and final stopping at the light are all i need it for.  My dodge dually wouldnt even have slowed that load, nor been able to steer. 




I could really go for a tandem cabover with 2 full screws and a good bunk trailer.

Just wondering what your dot regs are regarding log bunks. Here in canada we need them when hauling over 4 logs.

I dunno, they probably are.  Theres really no law enforcement where im at if you stay off the interstate.  And here logging is farming = just get it done.  Tractors and combines have the right of way.

I do need to build a set for one of my tandem trailers.. Just to make loading faster.
