The outer end of the boom is supported by --ahles 2O fastened to the mast. and mounted to travel on the outer cable 20 is a, carriage 21 to which is-conneeted a sheave block 22. A eahle 23 engages and supports the block 2'. and one end attached to a, ring it supported on one of theguys 19 and held by a line A crotch line 26 is connected to the block 22 and has its lower ends mouably engaging the blocks 13 and provided with grapples or tongs 27 or with hooks 28. These tongs and hooks are adapted to engage a log L for the purpose of lowering it. onto or lifting it from a car C mounted on a track '1 adjacent to the mast 15. I sheave blocks 29 areconnected to the mast 15 and also to one of the guys 19 and are engaged by a haul back'line 30 secured at. one end to the outer ends of the boom .12 and at its other end to a drum 31 of the operating engine 2-32. The cable 23 is extended over a sheave 33 connected to the mast. and is then extended downwardly to another drum '34 driven by the engine. In using the apparatus the cable 23 is paid out so as to lower the crotch line 26 and thus correspondingly lower the grapples and hooks which are then placed in engagement The cable 23 is then taken up so as to cause the crotch line 26 to pull on the grapples and hooks and grip and lift the engaged 19g, After 1.10 ,What isclaimed is:
