2 people, 2000 cube minimum.
Our delivery driver does a minimum 9 cube and at most 15 (if all really local) a day in the winter 5 days a week and 6/8 cube on a Saturday. We also get quite alot of people collecting. We've got 2 vans so if it's busy we put a run of 3 cube on the second van.
That's what I mean, if you just bought it all in and really pushed it you could have 2 drivers running out and not worrying about cutting it!

Ah, that's really interesting. I am upgrading the vehicle to take 4m3 but to be honest there are not enough customers to be quite that busy. However the way things are going we may be the only ones left.

All the Tree Surgeons just are not interested in Firewood any more as their staff demand a decent wage so the boss doesn't want to pay them to stand at a splitter and gone are the days of plenty of space to run your business from. Loads just work from home and have zero space.

We have to deliver up to 20 miles at present to find the demand. Sourcing decent timber of the right spec. is getting more of a challenge, as to keep the margins up we need a process rate of 10m3 / hr very minimum.
