American Lumberman Photograph Exhibit
McGiffert Loader with Raised Wheels
A McGiffert steam log loader in the woods near Southern Pine Lumber Company logging operations in 1903. Four crew members stand nearby. This photograph demonstrates how the McGiffert's wheels were designed to elevate and allow log cars to pass on the track beneath the loader for efficient log loading.
