I will have to get up to Lilliesville next week to say Hi to you and Bob. I also used my small tractor and a forwarding wagon this winter/spring to start on my first ever logging job. It is a long haul out to a road that is accessible by a log truck. So I used horses in the woods to twitch to several small landings then used the tractor for the final move out to the road. For this job this seems like a good mix of both power types and as Jim indicated above I will be able to improve/fix roads with the tractor as an added benefit to the landowner, which they have been very thankful for.
I have attached a picture of my first load of logs ready to head to the mill.
