    Simple but effective. I'm amazed that it was able to pull both sleighs of logs as well as it did.

    No one ever told Henry Ford it could'nt be done or if they did I'm thankful he did'nt listen. This is something to think about,isn't it funny how easy it is to do something until someone tell's you your doing it wrong. HA HA We all should be thankful for our pioneers who never stopped believing in themselves and kept grinding the ax.
