I believe it is 2'x4'x8'. But how does that translate into a Ford ranger pickup bed? Would 1 bed full = a cord?

4'x4'x8'.

A full-sized longbox pickup bed is 8' long. Dunno about Rangers and cords of wood, can't stand mini-trucks.

I think it is 4x4x8. Not sure about how much in a pick up truck.
Link Posted: 9/17/2005 3:10:23 PM EDT
Four feet by four feet by eight feet.

Yeah, I think it's 4x4x8. A full size pickup bed loaded full up is actually just shy of a cord.

I would guess a Ranger would be around ½ a cord.

I just measured my truck bed. It is 6'x4'x18" So it looks like it would be a little short of a half cord when filled a little above the sides.

As said already, a cord of wood is 4'x4'x8'.


A face cord is 2'x4'x8'.

Ok, now that we have established the volume - Whats the going price?

128 cubic feet

I would hate to see that ranger if you did get a full cord of wood on it.

Nope as mentioned that's a rick! You can haul a rick in a short bed truck if you have the right tires!!

No kidding!

I loaded my B2000 with what might have been close to a face cord, and the
bed was pretty much riding on the axle. The springs were fully compressed.

Like Tweak said with a full sized PU even up to the cab wouldn't be a chord,and unless you had a 1 ton dualie,with side boards you had better be driving straight(cause you won't be turning)your head lights will be into the air and your front wheels off the ground!!

I think a more important question is:



how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Link Posted: 9/17/2005 9:15:04 PM EDT
$35 per rick here. $10 for all the crosstie butts that you're man enough to load on your pickup.
Link Posted: 9/17/2005 9:20:53 PM EDT
I got a firewood cutting permit for the national forest close to my house. It allows me 6 cords of wood. I'll just fill the bed of my truck 15 times and call it good enough

Fixt



Close enough


Hey, you have a chain saw and a strong back don't you..........
Link Posted: 9/17/2005 9:26:01 PM EDT
I can load just over a half cord into my pickup and it cost me $50 CDN, and it does not put my suspension anywhere near overload on a 1/2 ton Ford

Actually, I don't think you've really lived unless you have been one of the kids picked to ride on the hood back down the trail.

Edited for another attempt at spelling.

Nope, I have that happen, hauling hay.

1961 Chevy Apache10, long narrow bed, 72 bails of hay stacked on it, the front tires would bounce off the road and back down again, we never got off the county road that day, it was a long drive home, but we made it, going nice and slow....I was 16 at the time.

Actually you could fill it approx 21 times for 6 full cords.

I used to cut, split, and stack my own.

Then, one day, I found this guy that will cut, split, and stack it in my wood rack for $135.00.

I turned the job over to him.

I've had it happen too. Loads of gravel, a bed full of parts from the junkyard, bags of concrete, hay...NEVER from a cord of wood.

Then mixed cords of fir, maple and alder must be significantly lighter.

Fuck that!

Why would you want to burn fir and alder anyway. Those species won't even bake a biscuit.

My people down my way burn locust, oak, hickory and maple. $85 a cord around here. If you have a saw and a pickup you can find places where you can cut for free.
