I've done it once but seen it done probably a dozen times. It can be very dangerous though. I ran an extraction call 12 years ago where there tractor filled backwards and pinned the operator for hours before someone called for help. He was dehydrated and covered in diesel fuel.

This method works well, but as mentioned, very dangerous.

Interesting. How do you get the chains so tight around the log that they dont slip right off? What are the chains then attached to? Hard to tell...

Most tractor wheels have openings in them, run the chain through the openings then wrap the timber. The chain doesn't have to be tight, the timber will bind of in the chain once tension is on the timber. I would not do it with out a disc or bush hog on it, tractors are geared low and sometimes they will stand up on you pretty fast.

I've used chain attatched to the tracks on a dozer and the other end attatched to a tree or stump before, but never a wheeled tractor. Dang, that looks dangerous. Sea-r-cy

I wonder why Tractors do not have some kind of fuel cut off or kill switch when they lift about 45 Deg's ?
