As as I remember a flat load of logs on a longer bodied 35 cwt truck was 
about a ton. I used to do that load for about £40 (back in the 80s) and, a 
load on my 10 ton Bedford TK (de-rated to 7.5 tons) was about £80 ... I 
forget the tare weight but it was about a 2 ton level load on the TK.

Hello People

As an aside to a recent thread where log prices were discussed I was 
wondering the following:

From travelling around I estimate £75  to be average for a pick-up load. 
What, in tonage, do people think that equates to? (granted this would be 
variable dependant on type of timber/green/dried etc but a general average 
will do)

I ask as I noted that a large wood yard near me, is selling split hardwood 
(most likely fresh timber) delivered (25 mile radius) @ £399 - 3 ton   & 
£325   - 1.5 ton. 

Festive regards
