    Good luck. Logging and sawmilling is a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.

    If you want to discuss things in more detail some time, my email is: tommyzsr@comcast.net

    I'd rather do that in private.

    Never know, two or three heads can (sometimes) be better than one.
     
    cke and TNSquire Thank this.

    I hope this will not end up being logging to load trucks with pulp wood for a paper mill.
    In Michigan with 80,000 lbs of wood it usually averages to $1000 per load to the truck. Which just seems very cheap when drivers only manage 5 loads a week most times.
     
    TNSquire and cke Thank this.

    That's pretty good pay pulling 5k a week.
    Locally, we pay around 3.50 a loaded mile, $200 minimum trip.
    A motivated driver can pull 5 loads a day if they have a spare trailer.
    We load while they're rolling, drop and hook, no waiting.
     
    Intothesunset Thanks this.

    Funny thing is loggers gross no more money than an OTR truck, and yet have way more parts failures to repair, and larger repair bills.

    That is good for some, but not for everyone.
