    Found a deal on Craigs list, $30 per load you cut. The guys got 25 acreas of mostly Oak that was logged off a couple years ago so there are plenty of tops for the taking. I figure I cut 3/4 cord all Oak and will be going back for more next week.

    I just have to say I sure do envy those of you who have oak as your main source of wood and who get it for next to nothing or for free....

    Good score. Even your trailer is stacked neatly.

    Todd looks like it will play out to a cord and a half...for 30 that's an excellent deal. Besides you're not killing yourself with tops either.

    I don't think it will end up being a 1.5 cord, my trailer is 5x8x2. I could probably heap up to a cord in there, but Oak is awful heavy and I'm sore as hell from just cutting that much, man I got to get back in shape.

    No matter how you cut it that's a nice score. Couple of years and it sure will mix in nice with that locust you've got.

    Home made. A buddy of mine welded the frame for me with 2" steel tubing, springs, axle and angle iron, then I put the hitch, lights, floor and sides on myself. I told him I wanted to be able to hold 4000lbs so he sized everthing up from there. I still need to weld on my new tailgate ramp that's on order.
