Nice rig. I have a Kubota B2150 with a home built 3pt hitch skidding arch and a LA350A loader. Sure wish that I had a grapple bucket on front, but I get along with with it nicely. Too cheap to spring for a 3 spool valve!!!
I much prefer cutting and processing my firewood in the summer when I don't need to ware 25# of extra cloths to stay warm.-----------------Loren

I have hoses from the remotes on the back to operate the grapple

After dragging the logs across the mud you'll dull a saw chain in a hurry when you cut them up.

Exactly! That why I like to cut wood when there's snow on the ground, and it's froze!

Frozen can be even worse a small piece of ice on or inside the log in a cavity will quickly dull a saw cutter about the same as hitting metal.

Not to worry, skidded like that for years, still do until I can make log length and use the 3 pt hitch forks. Never noticed excessive dulling, I just use a whisk or other broom where I'll make a cut or often times the logs have curves, bends and very little contacts the ground. Ones I hate are when they want to plow a furrow, again, I just section them up and get them with the 3 pt forks. I have even hosed them off, I like to process near my garage.
