    This is going to be an awesome mod! I am a logger in the reality and our knuckleboom is very similar to this one. Ours is just a Prentice instead of a John Deere. Just to give you some information in case you didn’t know. All of these knuckleboom loaders on trailers have a T-bar on the front of the trailer so that a skidder can pick them up with the grapple and move them around the job site. I am so glad to see someone making this mod! Let me know if I can be any help with providing info about these machines in real life because I operate one daily at work!

      Thanks Logan,

      There is actually a T bar on the front of this trailer as well. It is a Pitts model trailer, I can get you a link to it if you would like for reference.

      I do plan on doing a Prentice loader so I may get you to get me some pics of it. It’s hard to find good pics on the internet to reference.

      Thanks for the feedback!

        Our Prentice loader is mounted on that exact same Pitts trailer as well. I will get you some pictures as soon as I can. Also, Prentice is owned by Caterpillar. If you will look online at the Caterpillar and Prentice websites you will notice that the two loaders look identical in structure. The only difference is the decals and paint. So you could just make a Caterpillar skin for the Prentice if you chose to do so. In the meantime check out my youtube video and channel. I only have one video and my cover photo on my channel may give some you some reference. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLALkvKRLqc

        Thanks again!

          Very Awesome,

          Yea let me know when you get some pics together, that would be great. What’s your YouTube channel? Throw a plug up here if you want. You can insert a link using the link button in this editor. I know a little about YouTube and it’s marketing. I’d be glad to help you out with it.

    this crane is gonna be one of the most helpful forestry mods yet! I worked forestry for many years and this is a great tool. now will you be able to limb the trees as well as cut them to length? I also read about the t bar, will it be functional? and maybe in the future add a slasher bunk to place next to the crane to cut the logs to length. smoething that you could toggle lock and unlock into place to prevent sliding and such. idk something to consider. stoked for the mod. any idea on a release date?

    • #2783

      Hey Jim,

      Yes the T bar will be functional. At this point I have tested it with the Timbere131’s JD skidder. This sikidder has been tested and works well with it. For the initial release we will prob just have the loader by it’s self. Next versions will have the de-limber and buck saw. Also thinking about having a movable slasher saw that you can load on the trailer when need to be moved.
