They range any were from .15" to .3". So anywhere from one and half to three feet in diameter. Just about right for eastern logging.

I used the tops of the young pine-trees for my log truck

Those trunks almost look like the large redwood trees out west. Haven't looked at our pine tress yet. Good idea though.

Looks Good! I use Hon3 trucks as well. Ya just gotta make new bolsters and make adjustments for the wheels of your choice. The 4 foot archbars scale out at approx 5'10 wheel base or so.. Thanks for the tip on the bolsters...

Actually, 48*(120/87) = 66" = 5'6" - just trying to help, he said... :wave:
