    softwood cord

    Ive just sold some spruce to a haulier. He offered £44 ton. 1st load was well seasoned for 3+ years and didnt weigh alot. 2nd load had 1/2 fresh and 1/2 well seasoned and got 28ton. Ive also been offered £47 a ton roadside of a few people. For comparison haulier also offered me £55 ton for fresh ash so think hes a bit low on his prices. Hes hastle free to be fair and has to make a living.

    Is it worth me buying a Lumbermate to use on spruce & ash

    Thanks for the advise. I agreed to loan the mill, once I have it setup and running, the seller will run me through it etc. Sods law the same day I agreed to loan the mill, I sold a artic load of softwood and they took all my large spruce, sighh (loaded when I wasnt there). All my large ash was taken last week grrr. Ahh well. I may as well by the sounds of it try & trade my ash/spruce for some better sizes & breeds. Or sell mine to pay for more fit for purpose grades. If I decided to just waney edge my timber for fences etc. Is spruce or ash worth treating & what with? ta

    Wanted ibc cages

    I have loads of 1 use ibcs, very clean. metal/platic bottoms, £15 each collected. Based in Dalton, North Yorkshire.
  4. A friend of mine is selling a Lumbermate 2000 for £3500, its electric start, 30hp engine, 30" cut, 13ft extended bed, trailered, not done much work, left undercover outside. Hes a gamekeeper and milled his own wood for animal pens, fences etc. My question is I own a woodland and have plenty of felled Spruce and Ash, not big diameters but some reasonable 12" - 24". Over the next few years I am building some holiday lodges, building fences, buildings to clad, furnature to make and general timber requirements. Would it be worth my while in buying a saw and using the timber I have? any advise welcomed.

    Current timber prices for Ash

    I spoke to David last year, nice guy however a bit cheeky with his prices, offer £22 ton for seasoned softwood & £35 ton for the seasoned ash. Was'nt worth selling for that. He's only 2 miles down the road too.

    Current timber prices for Ash

    I dont currently have any Ash I want to sell however may change my plan and cut some down as the interest seems to be there. Not many people have posted current prices tho. I have just sold a artic load of well seasoned spruce for £44 ton roadside, is this good or bad?

    Japa 370 processor premature bar wear

    Ahhh I get you, im not sure. I am cutting longer & heavier lengths than I used to so its possible the extra weight is making the difference. I'll check it out. Thanks for the pointer

    no, feed belt pushes timber to the length stop. then belt stops. bar is pulled down, chain starts, then cuts. Belt does not start again untill I make it start.

    Favourite softwood

    I mainly burn Spruce, I really rate it. I only mainly have spruce & ash in my woodland and prefer to bun spruce. Gives out loads of heat, burns quite long, light to carry into house, easy to process, no need for kindling just a firefighter. Just need to convince my customers to buy it lol.

    Current timber prices for Ash

    Whats the current prices please. I have some seasoned and fresh felled processor friendly ash in 12ft lengths, I also have some very dry processor friendly spruce in 10ft lengths. I was wondering what its worth if I sell any. Just debating to keep or sell as I sell logs part time. Im located in North Yorkshire, 5 miles from the A1 nr Boroughbridge, good roadside access.
