I'm still hung up on these big maple trees that we're getting ready to cut down. I can't decide if we should keep all the lumber or not.
So one of the issues is how to move the logs from where they fall to where they're out of the way until I decide what to do with them. We don't have any tractors or earth moving equipment, and I can't get our 1/4 ton truck close enough to be of any help.
I'd like to figure out a way to move them ourselves, simply, and inexpensively. I figure each log could weigh as much as 1000 lbs. We're 3-4 of us. So I was thinking, why not a block and tackle?
My question is, it seems to me that when you use a block and tackle, as you pull on it, the pulleys move closer together. So if you want to move something a big distance, do you have to keep stopping and repositioning the pulleys to pull them apart?
If anyone has any other brilliant ideas for 3-4 of us moving logs say 50', I'm all ears. There's gotta be a way.
