Very nice Mike,

Especially like the ultra low gearing, maybe this is the ulitmate Carbon Cycle...

Very funny Rich! ;-) I reckon you need fairly flat tracks for it to work though...


Here's another way of moving logs with less environmental impact:

i love the idea od the first one but it looks a little unstable to me!

for the weight of a person sitting up ontop of a tripod/3 wheeled base the stearing wheels should be a little wider but its catch 22 as used in youre own wood you wouldnt want anything too wide!
