It has been a while....We purchased a used skid steer and dino bags....I found a supplier who can drop the split wood from the conveyor right into the bags then load on our trailer and we offload at our operation......once we do the first 20 or so bags we will have the 95% solution for average cuft per bag ....the reduction in "touch time" should drop our labor costs a bit and at 200 cords a year it should add up.....anyone else out there do it this way or have tried and failed?
