Estimating volume of loose piled logs?

Recommended Posts

Pile looks about 20 yards long, 6 to 8 feet wide ,  I would estimate 15 - 20 cube, heap looks bigger at the far end.

 

I find that there is always more timber in stacks that I think though.

Anyone have any thoughts on the best way to estimate volume of a large pile of split loose thrown firewood?

Half base length times height times length  for low estimate

PI times height squared times length times 0.5 for high estimate

Thats the kind of thing I was looking for. Lets hope its closer to the high estimate, but gives me something to work with. Thanks.

Thats a fair amount of logs you've churned out with that wee Splitter! Impressive.

Hi Paddy, how do you find the Wallenstein? What model is it, looks like a 540?

Is that a 1-hand operation conversion I can see?

Thx

Craig
