I was wondering how much a 22 in. dia. 8 ft. long chunk of green(living) cherry weights? If you guys have know idea do you think a wd45(about 40 horse)tractor can pull it.

The log in the picture is an 18" diameter by about 18+ foot chunk of wet White Ash.
Lift the front 2 inches and the governor barely kicks in on the 48 8N. Had to long line it out of the bush where she fell cuz I couldn't back up to the end. Never spun a tire even with the whole weight on the ground.

You have more than enough power, but as stated before...It makes it safer and easier if you can get the front of the log up a couple inches!

definately will pull that and more,,,, just be careful when hookin any log and pulling,, hook the chain short and go slow and easy,,,, with out a lil experience the tractor can flip easily if the log catches and stops and the tractor does not..

The volume would be about 46 cubic feet. As water weighs 62.4 lbs per cu.ft., the log would weigh a little under 2800 lbs. Don't let it get on top of you!

You shouldn't have any problems at all. Make sure you hook to the draw bar, and pull SLOW.
Cherry is my fav. wood, i skidded out a real nice one a couple days ago.

If you plan on dragging, figure out a way to the get the front end off the ground. It may dig in and flip you.

Yes,, all the way down town and back. She will pull a lot bigger log than that.
