    Self Loading Logging Truck Photos

    There must be lots of good material for people to post of the Self Loaders,Their definetly a world unto themself.Half truck- half machine,A truly independent aspect of logging.These few were in Campbell River,Vancouver Island B.C. last year.I see there is a thread for loaders on trucks,which is a bit different,this would be the same truck to load and haul.

    Can you tell us why some of the loaders go over the cab and others go over the trailer? In the states most self loader loaders are somewhat centered on the truck this has to do with weight limits on roads and highways.

    And some trucks are equipped with detachable crane, here is a old infomercial about that

    I did load the bunk logs and the peaker on the middle load the peaker the top log was the 4th cut of the same tree that the butt cut,bottom picture and 2nd cut top picture. Idid have to have help with the butt and 2nd cut. Butt was 5 and a half feet across, rotten and surprisingly light all three loads were well under 80,000 lbs.

    I have a question. Why are self-loading log trucks used? The reason I ask is in the SE US most logging operations have a trailer mounted loader they haul to the site, set up and load trailers out. They may have several landings it it's a big site.

    I'm not a logger, just curious. Thanks

    Here's a self loader getting some help we went around one day and loaded oversize with the grapple yarder the Stink Belts i mean Link belts couldn't lift ( hehe). The first pic is loading a big old fir, the self loader is just helping to guide the one end onto bunk . second pic is driving a away , then i walked to the edge of road and took a pic of him dumping the log into the water, snapped the picture right when log hit the water . pictures taken in Bear bay Bute inlet in 1999 .

    For me its convenient, sometimes the landowner would rather not have a large landing built every place I generate a load. I do a lot of small jobs salvage,clean-up things that the big boys don't want to mess with. I do have a loader that I use when I have the space and production that warrants moving it in.

    Self loaders are also used for small two three truck load loads. In the SE US or anywhere you would bring in a log loader which adds to the cost of the small job. Here the self loader is two machines a loader and a truck. Now it can’t carry the same amount of wood due to the loader however does save time and money.
