Almost a pair.   :D  Not many trucks like that around here now. years ago the farmers use to put wooden stakes in thier small dump trucks and haul pulp. I can't remember the last time I saw a single axle truck hauling logs.

Don't even think about crossing our scales with those loads on a two axle truck. :o I remember dad needing help to cut oak lumber down to a manageable size, I always tried to find something else to do. :D

A load of hardwood sawlogs leaves the landing for the sawmill from a winter 2013 timber harvest.
