In the Pacific Northwest it is customary to unload logs trucks with some sort of a forklift capable of lifting the entire load off in one bite. Common choices for this operation include the LeTournau log stacker, and the Cat 988. It is a struggle for the older 988's to do the job because that just barely lift enough to handle the task, but they are in common use. Shown here is a Cat 988B.
