I get NFS wood cutting permits. $8 per cord. This big old spruce filled the trailer. Standing dead, so lighter than you’d think. I want the new MS462cm saw pretty bad. My 290 has been great but at 11,000’+ it really bogs down.Looking good! I loved my MS290, unfortunately I destroyed it. Are you cutting on your own property? Looks like pine, but still must be pretty heavy.
Man cutting firewood at 11k feet in the Rockies would be so cool. I love being in the woods and running my saw. A local tree guy offered to bring logs to my house for free but I declined. If my wife knew that she would kill me!I get NFS wood cutting permits. $8 per cord. This big old spruce filled the trailer. Standing dead, so lighter than you’d think.

Yes the trailers are so incredibly well built. I would love to replace my M101A1 with an A3, but they are so expensive. It's interesting how on the surplus market the smaller they are the pricier they are. I am considering an M105A2. It would be a beast for hauling firewood short distances. Last month I bought an M353 down in Georgia. Now it is a monster. Too big for my GX though, but it was only $304 out the door. I am hoping to get an F-550 which could handle it.Not to get off subject, that 462 is really awesome. Use it at work, yet you could buy another trailer or that price.
Love the heavy duty build these trailers have.
This is true on a lot of the Government auctions. I try to determine what my top dollar is and bid early then don't look at it until the end. Sometimes it works.Well, despite me and the trailer being located in the Central time zone, the auction was listed in Eastern.
I have a M1102, and I can tell you from experience they will haul 2 tons without issue. Should haul as much firewood as you want!I would love an M1101/2. Passed up a couple of good deals because the timing wasn't right. Now they are getting really expensive. They seem like amazing firewood trailers. Do you have any pictures of yours? I think I will use my M116A3 as a base for a very simple camper. I have already swapped out the Hummer wheels and tires for some off an F-250.
