Re: How the big boys do it..

Very pro set up...


Strange how not many views of the vid on youtube as it's well put together... maybe not been published long.

Looked at the prices 141-00 per cube! Makes me feel cheap!

Great vid, didn't like the music. It makes me wonder for the size of the operation and the price they charge who buys the wood? I have a a hard time getting 85 a cube for dry hardwood..

Who buys their wood?

People with too much money who don't know they could buy a decent product more locally for less money!

how much red diesel do you think was burnt in the whole process from harvester to forwader to lorry to teleporter processor to forklift and back on lorry for delivery plus any other movement in the yard.

Less than you burn in a small set up and alot easier on the back. The reason they do so well is they give the impression the wood will be dry.
