    I have a chance to get some green wood, already blocked up for $100/cord but I have to pick it up at the landing. I have access to an F350 with a dump body, how much blocked wood do you all think would fit in this truck? The guy told me he thought about a cord per truckload but I dont want to get screwed either!! This is about the same price as I can get a load of logs delivered to my house for so Im cutting out the labor of bucking it up but adding the cost of fuel to bring it to my house...might just even out!

    My F350 dump is 170 cubic feet. I heap it up as much as I can get on without it falling off while driving and it stacks up to a cord every time.

    If you really want to haul a load you need one of these. Capable of hauling 325 tons. I figure it could hold enough wood to last Eric johnson a couple weeks in winter.

    i would say with the average dump body on a one ton you will get a cord. i know of several firewood dealers that deliver there wood this way and it stacks out to a cord. i think it has to be 170 cubic feet lossely thrown to stack out to a cord. don't quote me on that though
