Knuckleboom loaders are swing machines with specially designed booms for handling logs. They may be track based, wheel based, or trailer mounted. The trailer mounted version is not capable of moving around a landing by itself. Knuckleboom loaders are designed with fast hydraulics for quick swing and boom movement.
Fixed length log trailers are simply a semi-trailer with bunks instead of a box. They do not have a floor, but one or more beams to support the bunks along the length of the trailer.
Transporting chips requires a trailer that can safely carry chips without losing material and being loaded and unloaded. Open top trailers are used where chips will be loaded either by a chipper or grinder with a conveyor capable of pushing the chips over the top of the trailer, or by a loader capable of dumping loads of chips over the top of the trailer. Rear loading trailers have a rear door that contains an opening for the chute of a chipper to blow chips in through the rear. Open top trailers must have a tarp to cover the load when it is full.
A lowboy trailer is commonly used to haul heavy equipment and machinery, such as excavators, bulldozers, and other large construction equipment. The lowboy trailer is perfect for hauling large equipment like this because they are usually tall and wide and would exceed standard legal height and weight restrictions.

Weekly Chainsaw Maintenance Tips
1. Check Anti-Vibration Wear and Tear
Take a look at the anti-vibration elements to make sure they're not getting too soft or torn.
2. Lube the Clutch
Lubricate the clutch drum bearings. This will prolong the life and performance of your clutch.
3. Inspect the Bar
Remove your saw's chain and run your finger around the edge of the chainsaw bar to feel for burrs. If you locate any, file them until they're gone.
4. Check Your Plugs
Remove and clean your spark plug, and ensure that the spark plug gap is still 0.5 mm. If necessary, replace the spark plug with a new one.
5. Study Your Starter
Clean the flywheel fins, and make sure the recoil spring is functioning properly.
6. Wipe Your Fins
Clean off the cooling fins that are located on the cylinder to ensure proper heat distribution and cooling.
7. Clean the Carburetor
Clean your carburetor and your air box. Check the screen in your saw's muffler. Clean it off or replace it as necessary.
