thats what i thought it was i was looking at a 5420 open station 81hp with 3000ish hrs on it and factory jd loader  they were asking $21900 thought that didnt sound to bad i have a 4020 now with no loader and im ready to move to a front assist with loader the one thing i wish it had was a left hand reverse but o well glad to see yours can handle some big logs.  i used the farms 6430 the other day to move a 42-36" by 10' walnut log and i think it was about all it wanted unless i put weight on the back but got it loaded know i just have to decide if i want to set it on my mill  ???

UHaul should make flatbeds.

And did you ask them how they planned to unload?

Could be simple.  Tie one of the middle ones to something solid and drive up.   ;D  The trick would be what to do with it after it's on the ground.   The outside ones would have to move to the middle so as not to rip the door tracks off.

quote - "I hope he does not have to make a panic stop."

If the load is loaded tight to the front wall, no inertia can build up in a "brake - check" stop to cause damage. The force of all freight pushes evenly across the front of the van. On a flatbed trailer "false bulkhead" is built by stacking wood and chaining / strapping it down in front of the load to prevent forward movement.

The price on W Pine went from .34 a bf to .38 this week is what some big mills are paying now.
I think by spring it will be .40 a bf for logs. :o
I'm going to set my log price at .40 to make my price list for lumber for 2018.

What grades and lengths do you accept? Do you have to take knotty uppers to get the loggers to sell to you?

There is talk of a 35 percent increase in lumber up here in canada. That is good for me.

All the big mills only want 12',14',16', and maybe some 10' logs.
What happens is the logs get cut mostly 16' some loggers don't look at the logs and there like a boomerang. :D :D
Over at A&P Saw Mill I want gun barrel straight logs, So that means [old school].
Cut the logs the way they come out of the tree, I get 8'6" and up to 16'6" some 20'6" too
And I pay the same for an 8' like a 16'. If the grade is there.
Hunch back logs, logs with 2 piths, 4"+ knots are pallet logs. Less $$ for them.
At one time that's how trees where cut.
I met a new to me old logger on Saturday was happy I buy 8' logs.
I just half to wach out I don't just get the top half of the tree in a load, The butts had better be there too. :D :D

When I started buying all this wood some truckers, loggers, tryed to pull a fast one from time to time on me. :D
It took a while to weed them out. Now I have a good bunch and they know me better too.
The bigges thing [ THE MONEY IS THERE] no bull.
Buying 8'and 10' brings loggers in.
Dave In the mill biz I do get some knoty stuff, But if I don't pay much for it and tell them [DON'T BRING ME THAT JUNK]  :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
They get it. Like I tell the them no smaller than 10" top. Some 8" will come too.
It is what it is, So I try to market the not so good logs.
The loggers don't grow the trees, They just work with it.
What I will not buy is Red rot W Pine.
I got one logger all mad at me because he brought a load of red rot junk. Culled most of it.
