so i got a trailer for free and i'm going to set it up for hauling wood i'm getting ready to tear it apart this weekend and re-wire it and cut off the wood deck which is very worn out. i plan on using 1" angle iron and i'm going to weld on some sides and a drop gate on the rear and use expanded steel sheeting for the sides and deck. the trailer is 4x8 and i figured i'd fab up some sides that are 3' or 4' tall. the tailgate is 4' long so i figured 4' sides would be nice for tossing split wood in there to move around. question is?? how much loose split wood will fit into a 4x8x4 space. maybe a little less than half a cord? stacked it would be a full cord...and the trailer will not handle that much weight as it's only a single axle rated up to 1200lbs. so if throw in loose split wood...how much of a cord will i get in there. my calculations tell me that even a half cord might be pushing it (depending on how dry it is?) thanks in advance, Riggs thinking something like this...just scaled down a bit in size. this whole trailer will cost me less than $300 when i'm done...and i don't mind only carrying 750lbs of wood at a time instead of paying $6000 + to carry a few cords...it's only 20 miles and i'm in NJ every single day for work anyway.
