  1. Hers my typical costings cord £27 a cube running of splitter on tractor £2 per cube running saws £2 per cube so that gives me a cube of split logs on the truck for around £31 then the delivery based on an average of £5 worth of diesel and another £3 for the running costs on the truck,so dropped on the customers drive im looking at about £40 and selling at £90 gives me a miserly £50, thats without building costs insurance advertising, double handling on what goes in the drying shed and thats without going in to useing the proccessor, yeh goes on and on no wonder I got holes in me boots.

  14. I have 3 of the things,none of them read the same,variations of up to 10% so whats the point,always said they were a gimmick,they can tell a soaking wet log from a dry one and thats it,I have already had them come out with the meter, and delivered a few loads and they have left them in a mouldy old wet shed for a week then called me to come and take a look at there now 38%mc logs,,the whole thing is going to be a nightmare
  15. Good post,from one seasoned woodman to another we switched to vented bags a few years ago,they work very well,wood drys much better than tipping in a barn,they will stack up 3/4 high depending on your loaders lift,they are tipped by placing them on the truck bed,detach the bag and at the bottom of the bag there are two extra tabs hook on them and then lift and the bag flips upside down,then your loaded,very pleased with ours there 3 years old and each one must have been filled 50 times and there still in good shape,as I remember about £7 from ebay...Good luck Chap
  16. So if we make sure we deliver 20%or lower in the coming years we will be ok
  17. Thaks for that,we sold 225 cube to date this year,so what will happe in 2022? what will I need to do?
  18. So can anyone put me straight please,in laymans terms all getting a bit confusing, I season my wood in the stick for a year or so,cut split then barn store for the summer,then it goes out in the winter,around 20%mc can I carry on or what?or will I be brakeing the law after 2021? Cheers!

  22. Yeh thats me rushing to get finished before it gets dark,any ideas on getting a spare bar online, struggling to referance it to anything the same,the oil outlets are a tear drop shape rather that round , just thinking the round holes may not match up with the oiler,I could get one local but very expencive there.
