I have skidded a lot of logs with a 35. I do not think it will work very well to back up and pull from the loader as you will lose traction. I use skidding tongs hung from the 3 point drawbar by a clevis. I would definitely limb out the logs and drive slowly with them. Keep your skid roads clear, do not drive over brush and sticks and such as they can be caught by the log and come up and hit you. Again, drive slowly so you have time to see what is coming at you. If you do not want the logs at full length cut them into firewood or fence posts or whatever they will be on site and load them in a wagon. This is safer and they will be clean when you cut them.

If you want to work in all weather, how about a small crawler, like a JD 450-550 or a Cat D-3 or D-4?

If you have ever had a tracked machine in ice, or frozen ground, you won't do it again.

as far as the loader goes it would help keep the front end down but remember it will be harder to maneuver in the woods with it on there
