3.5 million :o :o   I thought  I was doing good having hauled 350,000 lbs of concrete block (4'x4' blocks) in a couple of weeks, that IS impressive.

thats what i  thought too, when i read that,WOW. 3.5 million pounds thats a lot of firewood. so converted it to cords using your figures, if i figured it right about 1300 cords. a pile of firewood.  then i figure my firewood sales that way,  last 3 years averaged 500 full cords year of hardwood cut and split, used 4700 lbs a cord , which i think im lite there,  it figures out to be 7,050,000 lbs. way more impresive than saying 500 cords a year for the  last 3 years.

Your math is correct, pounds does sound much more impressive. I gave the weight figure to highlight the durability of the trailer.

You came to MI to buy a trailer, and all us MI guys drive down to IN to get a deal on a trailer!  They always are less down there by several of the manufacturers or the dealers right under the boarder.  Bought my last 3 down there, sold the first 2 for more than I paid for them.

Here is the funny part of it. The trailer I bought is in fact made in Elkhart Indiana and I had spoke directly with the factory about buying it directly from them. Their price was actually about $500 more than what it cost me to buy it from their dealer in Union City Michigan. I bought this at Ed's Auto Inc and he cut me one heck of a deal and took a utility trailer that I owned for 7 years in on trade for just about what I paid for it when I bought it. On top of that, I wanted the side dump gate on the drivers side because when I back into my building, that is the side that would face my firewood bundler and is also the side that is easier for me to load bundled wood into the trailer from. The factory told me they did not offer it as an option on that side, buy Ed was able to convince them to build it that way for me.

After searching for a couple of months I just bought a 6x12' 12,000lb dump trailer from a friends father in law.  It needs a little work, but the axles, tires, and hydraulic system is good.  The price was even better. $500 8)
