    I was going to get a triaxle load of yew or birch logs for 1400 what i was wondering is the trucks have no crane to take the logs off.

    Do they not tilt up and the logs fall off.

    Are you sure it won't have a crane like this log truck?

    WOW....20 cord would make that $70 a cord and you still have to cut and split. I am spoiled terribly.

    lets assume the load is 6' high 7.5' wide and 24' long = 8 to 9 cords cut and split less.
    If the logging trailer has no grapling arm then plan on a folk lift to unload Most or none tilt or dump

    A tri-axle log truck without a loader will hold about 7.5 full cords. If there's no loader, then the load has to be dumped in your yard. I think $1,400 is about 2 or 3 times more than you should be paying for a load of birch. $500-$700 would be more like it.

    If the truck has a loader on it, that knocks about a cord off the load.
