I reckon if you made a foot high extension to that little trailer and heaped the load up a bit,you would be on the cube.

It would tip up by hand to empty as well.

Who was it who said that logs are selling the unprofitable to
the ungrateful?
 
Whoever it was, they were right. 

Totally agree, this is one of the main reasons why we decided to bite the bullet and invest in an expensive biomass burning system, I’d rather spend the time and effort and financial outlay on producing heat for ourselves than quibbling with people on how expensive logs where, I’m sure people think there’s very little effort and expense in the process ,the 15k for the processing kit the 20k for the second hand loadall the packaging for the logs to conform with trading standards so the disgruntled customer knows what they’re getting and not just a pile of whatever dumped on they’re drive, the cost of the large steel framed log store, then explain the logs need manpower to be processed and transport and time to deliver! They’d not believe you.

One other issue to add to it is there’s an awful lot of people out there banging out logwood for beer money, the wood often doesn’t have the extra production cost of storage and drying time, ours does because we have to prove that the wood that we produce is to the BSL standard before it goes in to our system. It’s a very similar issue to tree work companies not investing in training, insurance, kit and compliance and others that do.

Selling mine in .25 cube barrow bags this year. Probably .3 when full and stretched. It’s a take it or leave it situation but so far I’ve only had one old customer refuse. Easy to load, get 8 on the truck, bags have a lid etc, no mess all easy. 👍
