Artic load volume?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

if I buy in a 20t artic load of green oak/beech in, what could I expect to get regards loose m3 split logs?

12"to 18" fairly straight 

Im aware it will proberbly come in near to 25t but just trying to gauge figures per tonne

Also what should I be paying per tonne minus haulage?we are a bit out of touch, had it good for to long, buying and processing on site,   Needs must and all that!

Many Thanks

Volume of split logs (for 33cm long log) if 20t lorry load would convert into about 36m3 split loose logs and if 25t about 45m3 loose split logs (less % of waste dependant on straightness of logs and knots). Price at roadside say not less than £55/t.

I work off 1.8 loose cube per ton. £55-60 plus vat roadside.

What length of log are you cutting? 

We sell a mix, I averaged 1.8 over 150tons to check once.

 

Probably 60% 9inch lengths, 20% 12inch and 20% 15 and 18inch.

Beech and oak will not be the best as they are very heavy timbers. I still have yet to weigh a cube of fresh logs that was more than 500kg
