THOMAS' TOP TIPS FOR MOOSE DRAGGING WITH THE IRON HORSE
Using the Iron Horse as a moose carrier makes the heavy work of manually dragging the moose out of the forest much easier, but as always there are some important things to consider to make it as easy as possible.
The most important tips that Thomas wants to share:
- Make sure that as much weight as possible is at the front of the machine - head past the winch tower!
- If you use the moose bed, make sure that the rear body of the moose does not drag on the ground.
- Think ahead. If you are unsure of your choice of route, stop and take a second look.
- Equip the Iron Horse with a motorized winch. Indispensable for both loading and in case of jamming.
Attach the cable around the neck of the moose for the most forward position possible. The shoulder area as close to the load guard as possible.
You can also use the winch via a tree in front of the machine together with a throwing block to further pull the moose onto the machine.
Put your legs up on the platform. Do not let the rear body drag on the ground.
This will make the Iron Horse difficult to steer. Also make sure that the tailgate is properly retracted. Again, you can use the winch to make the job easier.
