Default Chain hook up for log pulling?

Looking to pull out some fairly big logs with my xt800r

I have the CamAm hitch with ball right now.

Where do I hook the chain,, around the ball?

Or somewhere else? Do I need a different receiver to use for a chain mount?

Thanks in advance.

I could use my Jeep Wrangler I guess, But I wanna see what this canam can do!!!!!!

I would use the ball if I were you. Thats what its there for right. I've skidded plenty of trees with mine. I would never use the rack. It might be a better angle for pulling, but if you cant move it pulling from the ball I would get the jeep.

What do you mean by "fairly big logs".....I pull 10-15 foot 10"poplar trees sometimes, but really need a skid or log dolly as they can dig into the moss here.....I welded a plate under the ball with a hole blown in it...easy to throw a hook in.

A clevis would be better than the ball. The real trick is wrapping the chain around the log so it gets tighter on the log as you pull.......Have fun.

Pulling ball is fine. There's are a ton of ideas for mounting a chain to the hitch. There all effective. I skid some large timber with mine

Well the canam didn't have enough beans to moves these logs,, they were all tangled up onto each other in the pile.

But the Wrangler didn't have too much trouble getting them out!

I might look into a winch snatch kit for doing some work with the winch.
Anything special?

I did bend the heck out of the winch hook clasp, when I had it hooked up with the chain trying to budge these things.

Thanks Guys

Default Chain hook up for log pulling?

All those branches and stubs will tend to dig in and plow, rather than slide. Get rid of the branches, wrap it with a choker chain, attach it to the hitch ball and you should be fine.

If you can get the front of the log off the ground for pulling, even better.

Good points. A rigging shop can fix you up, not all that expensive. Have fun, be careful.
