I dropped a pretty big elm in my front yard. About 24" at the stump. I cut the trunk in three sections each about 6 feet long. Then I put a chain around them one at a time and used my 420 to drag them to where I was going to cut them up. I looked up the estimated weight on a website. They average about 800 pounds a piece. The 420 had no problem with them going up hill. Needless to say I was pleased.

With my older JD855, I have skidded a number of logs here on this rock pile that surprised me my equipment could handle..
Several logs up to about 24" diameter and as much as almost 20' long.. Granted not over very rough terrain, but still a substantial load..

I have a telescoping boom poll (about 12-20") that pins to the top link connection of my 3pt receiver hitch...
I only lift with this... And use another chain to the draw bar to pull with...

Surprise wheelies are not a thing you want to happen..
Darn computer, web site, Photo bucket won't let me post a picture of my set up.... Grrrrrr.. :nunu:

Keep safe..
