    He does build a good burn pile, and I didn't tell him how to do it. He's not exactly a farmer type, he does his best to help. LOL

    Looks like a set of pallet forks would work well for that task.

    We have some. This was branches and tops with limbs sticking out in all directions, would have been hard to stack them on pallet forks. We wrapped a chain around the big ends and dragged them to the burn pile.

    landscape rake works wonders for that. It'll grab limbs that stick out same as it will trunks or bare limbs. I've cleaned up acres and acres of tops and limbs that were left after the log skidder got done here, with a 35hp 2wd Ford tractor and 5' wide landscape rake. One of the best $250 investments I ever made. Most of the time, I worked for hours without ever having to get off the tractor and when I did get off, it was just to rotate the rake so the tines were facing backwards.
    To heck with all that climbing on and off, tying on, dragging then untying.

    I'll second that. It does wonders on a gravel driveway also.
