    Pallet Box, Great for Firewood

    One of my "excuses" for getting the 1026R was to help out with the chore of firewood. I moved a few FEL buckets of firewood from the shed to the house before I realized I need something more efficient. I nailed some sides to a pallet and presto, I can move a full load to the house in one shot. This load was near the weight limit for the FEL. We pass the wood through a small window in the front room near the stove, this works great.

    It's also good for moving other stuff around.

    And I can just leave the forks under it when I am done, here I slipped it back under the wood shed ready for the next load.

    I might make an end gate for it later if I find a need for it.

    Great idea, and the box looks good!

    One thing you might want to do is find more pallets and build more boxes. Once I split the wood, I stack it straight into the pallet box. It seasons in the box, then I carry the box to the house when I need wood. When one box gets empty, I simply swap it for a full one. I don't have to touch the wood until I actually carry it in the house.

    Your mileage may vary.

    We finished splitting and stacking 4 chord of fire wood; maple, ash, pine, and fir. It sat for a year before splittong so the bark on the maple was loose making quite a mess. My pallet box came in handy to hail the waste out to the bush on one of my brush piles.

    I have it strapped to the back rest with a rachet strap.

    Time to bring home more pallets from work. Good thing is that they sort out the "good" ones for me when they are loading the truck. The pallet recycle service that we use just hauls the pallets away. We give them to them, so we don't have to pay to remove them and they get free pallets.

    I may have to wait a week, or two, but we get something like this in sometimes.
