Strengthening the Trailer – Log Hauling Trailer Pt 1

The more I got into making my own lumber, the more I really needed a trailer.  For years, I had want my own trailer outfitted with a loading mechanism.  When I had the money, I picked up this old equipment trailer which needed a good amount of work to be ready for my needs.  I’m happy that I got a trailer that needed work because I could customize it exactly how I wanted and it was such a great learning experience.

  1. Hey. Matt I’m building a log lift for my trailer and I’m not sure what size winch to buy can you tell me a little about your winch and cost?
    Thanks

    1. I use the 12000lb winch from Harbor Freight. When you’re winch shopping, pay attention to the line pull at the various windings. For instance, the one I have only pulls 6000lbs when it’s on the top winding, ie when almost all the cable it retracted.
