Man, at 30 clams a load like that, get ahead!
First load with the new rig.
The "new" hauler. 1994 F150 from down south. If it was from here, it would be full of rust after 21 years of winter salt. I have to fix a few things but it runs good and gets me down the road. It has the 4.9L inline 6 with auto transmission. It's not a fancy new truck like some of you have, but I plan to use this as a truck. It will be scratched and dented and pushed to its limits.
Here is a quick pic of our wood hauler. Late 50's Oliver 550 with a custom wagon. Not currently holding wood, but usually it is stacked high with 2 rows of 28"blocks
Good thing I have help.
I know I'm bringing this thread back from the brink, but since I just joined up I figured I would post my haulers. i use an m274 military mule for around the house, and a 2006 power wagon for fetching
Where can I get one, that's cool. Nice clean operation, that would keep my wife happy, Joe.
I also have a 06 Power Wagon. Nice truck. Those mules are pretty cool.
I love the mule, 4wd and 4 wheel steer. It is great except on side slopes, then it gets hairy.
Here's the best deal I could find on one. Looks like a cool vehicle.

This is a 1969 M-274-A5 Mechanical Mule. This one was originally delivered to the U.S.M.C on 7-1969. Runs great. 2 cyl. Hurcules air cooled engine. Great condition. Restored but great for hauling firewood, camping , hunting and always a hit at carshows. Very useful but now it is time to part with some of my toys. Parts are plentiful on the internet. Service manuals will be included. Please call for info. or appointment to buy. No trades Call Robert at show contact info
seems like a good price to me.
Cool pic. Keeping the operation "Small Scale". You need a cab with heat and air on that tractor. Very nice, Joe.
Shoot I'd be happy to have heat and air on the skidder... and a door on the cab (got ripped off by another owner)
Nice trailer! I’m case you don’t know, that is a Converto airborne dump trailer. It is a WWII trailer and they bring good money as they are much rarer than the regular 1/4 tin Jeep trailers.
