I see pulp trailers with about that much overhang pretty often.  One flag at the end.

if you think your getting more on by running it long you are not. cut it 20 ft or so butts ahead the tops butts to the rear. you will have the same load just slightly higher and a lot safer. the crash i was refering to it took the drivers head off

For chip and saw which what this is it has to be 18 foot long with a min 14Ē butt and min 6Ē end. So if you have 32 foot stick you have to keep it one stick or cut it and the end cut will be pulpwood which is 15 bucks less a ton. Even pulpwood has to be at less 12 foot long or they will not take it. My boosters are are 13 foot apart on this truck. 11 on my other one. This truck with the loader on it puts 6,000 on my front axle. Everyone run there trucks like this down here. When you can get 35 a ton for chip and saw or 20 a ton for pulpwood you try to make everything you can chip and saw.

6) The load upon the rear vehicle of a combination of vehicles transporting forest or agricultural products in their natural state shall not project more than twenty-eight (28) feet beyond the rear axle of the vehicle except in the special circumstance hereinafter prescribed. If such products project more than twenty-eight (28) feet beyond the rear axle and, due to the end use for which they are intended (such as tall utility poles or light poles or the like), such products cannot be shortened without rendering them useless for the finished product for which they have been cut, then such special circumstance may be considered good cause for the obtaining of a permit which shall be procured pursuant to Section 63-5-51 before vehicles transporting such products may operate. Except as otherwise provided in Section 63-5-21, any vehicle transporting projecting loads as described in this subsection that extend four (4) feet or more beyond the rear or body of the vehicle shall operate only during daylight hours, and the load on vehicles designed to transport forestry products shall be secured by at least two (2) chains, two (2) wire ropes, or two (2) nylon straps, one (1) positioned behind the front bolster and one (1) in front of the back bolster.

Iíd be iffy on just two wrappers per load, 4 is required here in Oregon, then Washington itís 3 per load so a long logger has 3 then a short logger will have 6 total.

I have never put more than 2. Itís funny how different states has different laws. One reason I like this site so much to see how other guys are logging around the country. Wood is cheap here and everyone has a log truck. This time of year you got to stay on the phone to the mills to take your wood. My wife is friends with the ladyís at the scale office and gets me in most of the time.

Iíve only been shut off a mill once on one job because of wood quality all the other times itís been a quota of day 3 loads a day per operator per job. With your moving issue are you close to any ports of entry for the state?
Are there two saw log tonnage sorts available?

My problem is I work offshore a month then home a month. The guys that log full time are given the loads first. This years is the worst I seen in a long time. Itís been really dry the last month. There a lot of timber around here beening cut too. Which floods the mills close by. Right now when  someone canít get there quote there calling me and I pick up the slack if not they will get cut the next week. I got 3 loads of saw logs stacked and 6 loads of chip and saw a few loads of pulpwood too. What sux is last week the paper mill was open on Saturday then Thursday stop taking.

Buddy of mine cut a lot of pine poles just up the road from the chip plant. He gave me all the tops that is bunched up ready to load. All I have to do it load them and make the 5 mile run to the chip plant. About 10 loads 200 tons $4,000 bucks worth I could get in a day but there not taking it right now. I hope they do end of next week. My buddy just left it because it cost too much to truck it to the other mills and he needs his loader on another site.
