    Apple tree on CL. She said it was a big crab apple and it grew small apples. I figured the grab apples were the tiny ones. Anyway it was a free add but she wanted the tiny stuff gone too so I said I don’t do that part for free so she gave me 50$ bones and I took everything. Going to make money off the wood aswell selling it as bbq wood and use it myself in my smoker F4080934-F3C4-482B-B0C1-F74E6F0EE49D.jpeg 38B77E1F-6156-4722-9A1B-7F8739B66D36.jpeg DE6589A2-4FD4-44D7-BE9D-56A48A9995D7.jpeg the wood is at the bottom.

    Got some of that cherry but some of it was rotted so I didn’t want much. It was a wild cherry. Got some more Fir aswell.

    Got too the butt, sucker is 42” diameter. Couple pieces are for carving. The tall one is about the length of the chainsaw. It’s got a 25” bar and is a 064 822AE0F3-59C6-412D-9E05-1CB3A947D61E.jpeg 1D55CCBB-0487-4093-B47C-FD6F22B814D6.jpeg C587DB3D-7F46-47F9-B498-0C65C58B2360.jpeg the bump stops are hitting the axle. That’s how I know it’s full load

    I still don't know how you get so much weight in that truck, but it definitely works.

    Fixed it for you. Seriously, on the one hand, it's your own business how badly you overload your truck but on the other hand if you're traveling on public roads, you have some responsibility to stay within the safe limits of your equipment. You can find yourself an old F250 for a couple thousand bucks and haul more, much more safely, and save a lot of wear and tear on that little 'yota.

    I used to put 10 ton of 3/4” minutes in a 14,000 pound 26k dump truck. 1k is no big deal. Just don’t go much over 60. Usually 55. I know how to use the clutch 1 time and not come too a stop
