A person I work with asked me if I would make a model of a horse drawn log hauler for his father, little did I realize how much work it would be. It is in 1/8 model scale and is about 40 inches long but is adjustable to about 20 inches depending on the length of logs hauled. This is classed as a “light” hauler. It is made mainly out of Oak and I used brass and Aluminum for the metal parts.

Pretty cool piece of history. I’m guessing you learned a lot about the history of them in the process of making this one. Thanks for sharing.

That is just downright cool. I immediately noticed the cross cut saw and hook on a chain. Excellent attention to details.
