Looks to me the right rear is feeling it. Tire looks a bit rolled over. I like the dolly!

Note the trailer is another TT cut off.Done just like the chassis was under my dump bed.That is alot of wood on there.No real need to chain it down,heck if the log wanted to roll,it would just take the truck with it anyhow!

Many Moons ago, probably in the 70's or 80's, The Vintage Ford had a photo of a man from, it seems like, Mississippi or Alabama, that had a tree on a trailer pulled by a TT that as I recall was twice the diameter of this one. From the size, it looked like a Redwood but was a Cypress, I think. Anyone remember it?

Terry, that was "Goat" Robertson as I recall. It was a gum tree and weighed seven tons I think. There were some pictures of the rig too. Very nice article. Dave

Coincidentally, Bob, I caught this through a closed store window in Jacksonville, Oregon, several years ago.

I don't know where it came from, someone in the past 15 years gave it to me. Now I know where it might have come from. Thanks.

Bob

Great picture, David.


However, it is not a log. It is a Mascot. A giant "pole"

Standing on it is the Pole Vaulting Team from Brazil.

Wow! That load might be a bit much for the transmission brake.
