Last week we saw a sled that carries heavy objects — this week we’re stepping up to wheels. It looks like you attach this rig’s hooks to one end of each log; then we’re guessing you drag ’em out of the forest by ox or horse team.
This style of wood removal was probably slow and tedious, not to mention a workout for the animals, but back in the day it was the best technology to be had: one or two horsepower and a few wheels. I’d love to watch the guys on Ax Men be handed this stuff and see if they could get enough timber off the mountain.
Thanks to reader Goblirschrolf for the sweet photo.
