Norwood Log Hog Log Skidder Tractor Attachment, Model# 41255 Log Hog
Works great to pick up logs and drag them. Very solid and sturdy. The hook attach loops started to show some signs of wear after a few uses, but I might not have tightened it completely when I assembled it. Overall all, very happy with this product.

3 pt. log skidder
Unless you are going to invest in a mechanized log winch, this is the most useful attachment for skidding timber out of the woods. It keeps the front end off the ground and puts maximum weight on the rear wheels of the tractor.

Cost effective log skidder
I own a professional tree removal service and use the Norwood Log Hog on my 23hp diesel tractor to skid smaller whole trees out of sensitive areas that my larger skidder just will not get into. Every time I use the Log Hog, customers and other professionals are impressed with its' performance as soon as they see it in action. If you own any type of tractor with a 3 point hitch this product is a fantastic way to turn it into a mini skidder!

Log Hog worth every dollar...
I purchased the Log Hog because of my annual need of 15+/- cords of wood. I have a lot of ground to cover and the easiest way to get the job done is by dragging the logs to the wood pile and cutting and splitting there. This Log Hog is pretty simple, but worth the money. I would recommend to anyone who has the need to move several trees.

Of course, this works well for hauling logs. I regularly can pull a 15-18inch hardwood logs 10-15' in length with this tool and my Ford 2000 Tractor (36hp).
What I have also used this for is a towing hook to haul a small lawn tractor that was disabled. Worked very well to lift the back end by the hitch and tow the lawn tractor back to be repaired in the garage. Slick!
I also use it to pull t-posts out of the ground. Just lower it next to the post, give the chain 2 wraps, and lift the post out of the ground.
This is one useful tool!
I thought that it was a bit pricey when I bought it but now think that given the labor-saving work that I can do with it, it was a steal.

Awesome logging tool
The tool is GREAT. I use it all the time. After I cut the tree down, I cut the top off and haul the whole tree to the barn. I have had no problems at all. I have cut and split 24 full cords of firewood this year and hauled all of the trees to the barn with the Log Hog.

Log Hog does the job
The Norwood Log Hog is a good value and I am happy with it. A friend dropped 12 oak trees in his woods so we could get some lumber for a future project. Most had 10 to 12 feet of beautiful saw logs at the bottom so I needed to drag out very heavy and large pieces by myself (not recommended!). I put the log hog on my 28hp massey ferguson tractor and pulled out the big logs with few problems then winched them up on to my trailer. I then dragged the upper parts of the the trees closer to my trailer to cut up.
The height of the hook and the amount of lift from the 3pt hitch really made it easy. It's nice to be able to back down on the logs rather than trying to get them with a chain off the front end loader. Dragging from the receiver hitch is too low and the log gets stuck or caked with mud.
Anyway, I was sore for a week but the lumber is drying in my shed and is beautiful!
**The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is somewhat expensive and the packaging it shipped in had broken open spilling bolts inside the box.

This is a good tool and fairly easy to attach and use. Works great on the Kubota to move logs-just be sure to have enough counter weight on the front end! Made my life a whole lot easier. I highly recommend this Hog!

Well made product
Purchased this for pulling logs with a Kubota compact tractor with a cat. 1 3 point hitch. The skidder attachement is well made, needed only a minor amount of bolt together assembly and seems plenty strong enough. You will need to add your own lenght of chain but once all set up being able to lift the front of the log makes skidding a whole lot easier.
