Using the winch!!

James has fitted a winch to the front of Ally the gator with the help of a fabulous neighbour!! He decided to use it for hauling in some of the logs cut at the bottom of the hill by pipe stream and along the woodland edge of the field!!

Here is gator, winch and trailer system on its maiden voyage!!!

Slow but far less back breaking than barrowing or carrying a trailers worth of logs up the steep hill!!!!

Wood pile!

James has been working ever so hard at the small holding wood pile!! We have both been chainsawing up branches and small trees that needed to be tidied up and he has then been collecting the logs in Ally and then splitting them with an axe or his chainsaw!!
