Tomorrow I'm headed out to pick up some more FREE firewood. (Yep from Craigslist) And since they are BIG wet rounds of white oak & hickory, I decided to add a little insurance weight to counter balance the loader. It's not pretty, but it's 90 lbs that will help.

Here are a few pics of the added weight and the pics of the wood I'm going to be hauling out of the guys yard and loading on my 7.5 x 21' 14,000 lb trailer. There is at least a full load and a 1/2.

Some good heat in that stuff! Will you be using a hydraulic splitter on that? A vertical one might make it easier with those heavy rounds.

Sounds like you've got a story about a GT and a pool? If so, do tell. :thumbs:

 

NJKen.....Craigslist is the greatest for stuff like this. Great catch...oh and be safe. Those rounds can hurt a guy real quick, as you know.
