Log flumes did not start out as fun amusement rides that you look forward to cooling off on during the hot summer months. Similarly, the skidder you rely on today was not originally a mechanized hauler that drags, or provides skidding prowess, to get logs out of a forest. Log flumes, if you are still wondering, were built to float logs from a logging site down to the base of a mountain, or wherever they were going to be loaded onto trucks or freight trains. Except, instead of fiberglass wood-lookalike boats carrying people, the water pushed actual newly cut logs along the flume. The predecessor to a log skidder would have been dragging the big trees out by hand with the assistance of calipers. The special skidder tires on this logging staple vehicle stabilize motion, whether hitching a log onto the machine or relocating logs. Search for a skidder in the large inventories offered by the many reliable sellers on eBay and always look for convenient shipping options.
