Seem to think I've asked this before, but cant recall and or find the post.

If you have 1 cubic meter raw of timber, what is the expected volume once processed in an ibc taking in to account randomised stacking.


Hope that makes sense!

Solid m3 = approx 2.5m3 split loose (range 2.2m3 - 2.6m3)

Solid m3 = split and stacked 0.67m3

1000 litre IBC crate = approx 1m3 level

Above based on 33 cm log length, if logs thick, uncut or gnarly more airspace and if shorter logs less airspace.

From taking stacked creates of 25cm logs and converting them to loose filled 1m3 cages you get 1.4m3 loose from a stacked 1m3 of logs.
