Log skidding - what size/make/model should I look for

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be clearing some land and cutting some rather large trees. I want to skid my logs so I can have them milled. I'm thinking a utv would be ideal. I never have owned one so i'm clueless about what to look for. The logs will be up to 20 inches in diameter and up to 20 ft long. Thanks

    • Large custom utility rack for RZR

      I purchased the RZR for farm use, hunting and trail riding. This is what I designed and built for mine to haul my 2 cow dogs & just about anything else. I designed it to hold 2 large soft sided foldable dog cages. The dogs load from the front seats into the cages. There is room under the rack to carry spare tire, jack, tools etc.... Even though I went to all the trouble to give him a place to ride. Ranger still perfers the shot gun spot.

    • Seriously thinking of joining the family

      Looking to get into a UTV, having said that I have been doing some research on the trooper. Have many questions already answered, but need the reassurance. I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for, but you can buy a lemon every day of the week.....from anyone. The looks of the trooper are eye catching, the motor sounds like it has potential. The lockers don't sound very good nor does the diff's. Are these a capable 4X4 or do they belong in the desert with the buggy's. Is the manual tranny worth it, or do you wish you had a low gear in the transfer case for bigger rubber. I am not into going 100 miles an hour. How nimble are they in the bush? I like my hunting in the great white north.....as in Canada:) This is what i am thinking of. T2 trooper, new cam grind for torque, tuner, 31" silver backs, clutch upgrade.... to start with. My knowledge of mechanics is moderate and I do enjoy my garage. So I am not worried about have to maintain this machine as all of them need TLC. Would like honest answers and no salesman crap. Let me know what you all think.
