    Does anyone know where I can find a skidding/logging mini grapple ( see photo) for personal use? I tend a 50 acre wood lot with difficult terrain and need this device to winch IMG_2280.JPG in logs while avoiding hang ups... so far my research has provided me with no source for this logging tool... any suggestions welcomed, thanks

    Looks like $300-350 plus shipping from Britain. Old school logging stuff...but pretty neat..

    Hell....I didn't get past the picture.
    I was trying to reference what he was looking for.
    I use a chain. Then a chain on a bar hooked to a motor.
    Ring-a-ding.......

    Ok thanks everyone so far for your input... heavy horses was an excellent feed but a dead end so will likely consider plan b.... fabrication... will leave the post up in case someone else has any ideas... jay

    I would like to try to build a set like that. I’ve built myself tongs before. Pretty sure these would be fun to try.

    Just remember you have to carry the damn thing back to the next log. A simple set of grab hooks are surprisingly useful (and hard to find). We just got one of those skidding cones and it paid for itself in about 30 minutes. A true pincher like that has the added benefit of grabbing slash piles.

    Why not just use a choker? Lot easier to handle.
