LOGRITE LOG ARCHES
Move any log anywhere with minimal power, disturbance and effort with a LogRite log arche. LogRite log arches are the most effective, ergonomic and useful tools for low impact forestry, arborist and portable sawmill applications. Log arches allow for low impact operations in sensitive areas, minimal ground disturbance and clean logs for portable sawmilling. LogRite arches are available in different sizes: small, midsize and large arches.

LOGRITE LOG ARCHES MIDSIZE
There are two midsize log arches available: the ATV Arch and the FETCHING Arch.
|THE ATV ARCH ...|
The ATV arch is a tough and light structured log mover. It is easy for one man to use. It can be used behind an ATV, Gator, riding lawn mower or pick up truck. The ATV arch has an effective "reach" of 5 feet allowing it to pick up logs up to 10 or 11 feet in overall length by their middle or drag just the tail end of longer logs. It is also effective in hauling logs 20 feet or longer with minimal tail drag. The ATV arch comes equipped with a 3200 lb 2 speed hand winch and a 3/8" choker cable. The winch line can be used for large single logs or multiple smaller logs.
|THE FETCHING ARCH ...|
The Logrite Fetching Arch is the most versatile arch in the 2 foot diameter and 1 ton category! The Fetching Arch was designed to do the heavy lifting on steep slopes or sensitive areas that are off limits to wheeled vehicles such as ATVs or tractors. On steep slopes the 25" tongs will lift the log whenever a pull is applied to the handle from a winch line or drag line pull. This toggling or over-centering action is positive on steep slopes, carrying the log clean off the ground toward the line pull. On gentler terrain the handle can be pulled down first to lift the log and then proceed to carry the log along. The Fetching Arch has no specified length, so it can be set up at or slightly ahead of the midway point to pick up and carry the entire weight of any length log. The Fetching Arch can be used by hand, so it can be used in any situation where heavy or more mechanized machinery cannot go, such as backyards. For this application many choose the optional 6' two man handle for added leverage and control. The Fetching Arch can be fitted with the optional Tow Tongue and Winch, which effectively turns the toggle-to-lift arch into one that remains horizontal and picks up logs with 3200 lb 2 speed winch and 3/8" choker line. The tow tongue will hook to any vehicle with a two inch ball and allows the Fetching Arch to be used similar to the ATV Arch. When using the attached hand winch and line on the tow tongue, multiple smaller logs can be moved with the choker line. The choker line can be attached to its own bell or to the arch. We call hooking the line back into the arch, the doubling option. By using this doubling option, it cuts the power needed to lift the log in half.
