Moving logs (or brash) around in a woodland is often a big job, we've tend to drag logs by hand to a stack near where they are felled, and then in the summer use a trailer with our 4x4 to move them back to our main storage area. However, there's still room for improvement, both in terms of efficiency and reducing the amount of driving a vehicle through the woods - so we've recently bought this Stein Arbor-Trolley, which is ideal for moving small loads of logs, brash or anything you can strap onto it:
I've made a video review of it:
You can extend the sides upwards, as below, to let you carry more. I found that with freshly felled logs there was no need for this, as the trolley got heavy enough before the logs were at risk of falling off. For moving seasoned logs though (which we tried yesterday), you can put double or triple the number of logs in, so the side supports are very useful then.
Here's a view of the main trolley - it's very solidly built! You can see a small bracket at the bottom of the far end - this is useful when you want to tip it up to load or unload a large log.
Here's the attachment for the handle to tow the trolley - there are three positions to use, the longer ones allowing longer logs to be carried and giving you more leverage, but reducing mobility:
Both the handle and the wheels are attached with these neat pins:
It can carry up to 500kg, according to this sticker. There's not actually any instructions though, I guess it's just a standard sticker.
Finally, here's the specification sticker. Nice to see it's made in the UK! The trolley weighs 36kg.
We've used it twice now, and found it certainly saves us a lot of time, and is well worth the money!
