    How do you get the logs out of the trailer?

    It's a 10K dump trailer, I just hit the button and let the hydraulics do the work. I thought about getting a dump truck too but I think I'm just going to get a kit to make my pickup bed dump so I can just dump everything. This has been a great trailer, it has a spreader tail gate too, it will spread gravel, that has been a handy feature to have. It also can haul my skid steer, just got all new tires on the trailer yesterday. I may sell it soon and get a bigger one I am not sure yet.

    I'm selling that one for $2600 and going to upgrade to a larger one. I think that same one new is about $4800.

    Sounds like a good deal on a handy unit. Around here I haven't came across many used smaller dumps for sale. I see em being pulled around but they hang on to em.

The feds shut down our low approach do to the height of the trees. Most are only about 12 inch diameter pin oaks. Maybe 5 or so are mature trees. I’ve been slowly working on it the past year. I dropped four more today, got them limbed and bucked up, loaded, brought home, split and stacked in about 4 hours. The 461 was sporting a 20 inch bar and is a beast with that short bar. This wood I’m working on now is for winter of 2021-2022. I’m so far ahead that I’m basically just taking the trunks and leaving a big portion of the tops.

    Being that I am a veteran and they have been so welcoming to my family and I. My goal is to provide whatever I can.

    Just finished up building a dray for moving logs. I have used it once so far and it seems to do the job. I am pulling it with a JD garden tractor.

    I have just started using it and I like it. I think I can haul more wood in log form than I can in blocks in my trailer.

    The dodge is down due to a hole in the radiator so I had to use the family offroad vehicle. With its lift and soft springs it's not real happy with a load in it but I wanted to run another load out to the veteran horse ranch.

    It's been a while so I guess it's time for the OP to bump this a bit ....

    I have done very little actual saw work but I have do a bunch of prep work cause my 1 row was looking a lil sad and sunk. So I cleaned up all the bark I could, pulled the pallets and laid down fresh gravel from my own pit, repaired any damage and reset them.

    Maybe a week or so and I'll grab a saw for a while and start filling it back up ... till then ...

    Keep on ... Runnin' Loads .....
