    depends on the truck. I just got 5 loads of oak delivered. the truck was a 8x20x42in bed. It was stacked front, back,and sides with the center dumped in. He said it was a good 3 cords. I think closer to 3 1/2. I paid $300 a load. He and his brother cut and deliver a truck load a day. I've got lots of wood here on my place but I don't see how I can go wrong with this deal. It's 8in and smaller and all cut to 18in. I thought he must use a prossser as it is so even but no he hand cuts it. They are clear cutting a huge area so it is fast cutting but 3 cord a day delivered is more work than I want to do.
    Trucks come in all sizes.
