Looking for Log trucks/ers in Central PA area
« on: September 22, 2017, 06:30:44 am »
I have 3-4 loads needing moved and looking for local resources.  Anyone or a referral?
Thanks.

Call the mills and ask for the scaler/grader.  Hes on a first name basis with the local drivers.

Coxy, that's some insanity there. I hope the don't actually find a J-walker. They may have to dispatch Special Ops!  :-\

Thinking about getting my own older log truck and opt-in for a Farm tag. In PA, I can do 150 miles from home-base with no CDL, etc.

Authority's are worse than a visit to the dentist. Then recording milage and out of state milage, fuel purchases.  I need a full time secretary to keep up with 2 trucks..

Im not looking forward to it, but i cant rescue my shop up in massachusetts without going legal.  NY just wont let me pass so i might as well put dot/mc on the side and haul a paying load passed them on the way up.   The insurance policy (and a real truck) will double my logging revenue when im not on the road.
