I have maybe 12-14 logs,depends on how I cut them, laying in my yard. Would it be cheaper to take the to a mill or get someone with a portable
Thanks, I do have access to a trailer but getting them on the trailer is the problem. I could possibly get a guy down the street that has a scoop on his tractor to load them. I was just wonder if the cost would be much differenceDo you have the equipment to load them and get them to a mill? Are you physically up to loading that many logs and taking them to a mill? I was in a similar situation 6 years ago, and my answer to both these questions was NO. So I had a guy w/ a portable mill come to my location and saw them on site.
Remember this was 6 years ago and the guy I used has retired and sold his portable mill. He didn't charge any extra fees (e.g travel, set-up, blades, etc.) but he did have a minimum I had to meet. I don't remember if it was a certain number of logs or a total fee. Either way, I met it easily.$0.25 BD/ft is a really good deal. If you can get Bill's guy, use him.
