This was a convenient setup for me to move cut logs in our woods using our JD tractor. The perfect solution: the whole rig is very strong, stable, & easy to set up. I have moved about fifty 8' logs without any problems. Important safety tip: If you are unfamiliar with operating a forklift, you should review the operation & safety rules. The weight distribution of a forklift on a tractor bucket is very different from actually carrying a heavy load in the bucket. Go slow and use caution.
