Here is a little more modern log and lumber tool and I use it quite often. We had the Wood-Mizer down to other place and cut a large curly maple and it wouldn't go thru the carriage of the LT40, so I cut a slot the full length with big Husky and then cut wood wedges about 8" thick to nothing about 18" long and split it and sawed each piece.

A guy that I worked with sold timber to a black man and his son off of his farm in Williamson County, Illinois. They cut the logs and dragged them into a loading area with a JD "A" farm tractor. One morning about 3 am, he was awakened by a racket outside, and he went to investigate. The son had that old JD "A", and was loading logs onto a truck in the manner shown in your third picture. The land owner asked him what the h3ll he was doing out there at 3 am, and the son replied that he had to catch a bus at 7 am to go to Army basic training, and he wanted to get the logs loaded so his dad wouldn't have to do it by himself. I never got to meet the son, but I met the father, and he was a class act.

I loaded a 5 foot diameter pecan log on a trailer using that technique with a Ford tractor.
Very interesting book.
