Just measure those log for me a minute please?

I found some dimensions s and it seems to be 2.45 cubic meters. Does that sound about right.?
1750 long, 1m high, 1.4 wide?

I suspect you might need a pretty formidable cargo guard...

Why stop at just one load?

A "B" reg series one? Presumably it was demobbed in '64?

It was demobbed in '63 (I have a copy of the Ruddington auction catalogue) but not registered until '64.

Hi,

As wood usually floats, it's SG must be less than 1.

A gallon of water weighs 10lbs. There are 6.25gallons to a cubic foot, so a cubic foot of water weighs 62.5 lbs.

A cubic centimetre of water weighs one gram, therefore a cubic metre of water weighs 1,000,000,000 grams, or 1,000,000 kgs .... which suggest that my sums are wrong.  :stars

So, until somebody puts me right, I will assume that a cubic metre of water weights 1000grams. AKA 1 tonne.

Working backwards from that, it seems that 1 cubic millimetre of water weighs 1 gram.  :stars

I think it safe to simply assume that a cubic yard weigh less than a ton.

If you fill out a lwb hard top to full capacity you will be well to the north side of 2.0 cubic metres.

Barring the exotic types of wood from other climes [both light such as balsa, and heavy such as some tropical and Aussie types which do not float] the specific gravity of wood varies wildly from around 0.5 to 0.9 depending on type and dryness.

Calculating to a weight gives from +1 tonne for the very lightest wood, up to 2. something tonnes for the heavy, wet types.

Rosinanti what a good idea,
I need some more 3.6m for my landy.
Got 5 cubic meters of logs coming tomorrow.
Trailer 10’ long.

I'm minded of ...

"How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
and chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
if a woodchuck could chuck wood."


Meanwhile there's something fishy going on here ....

Confusion up front between cubic centimetres and cubic millimetres I suspect.

There're 100cm in a m so there're 100*100*100 = 1,000,000cc in a cu m. For water @ 1g/cc that's 1,000,000gm = 1000kg = 1tonne.

There're 27cu ft in a cu yd so a cu yd of water weighs 1687.5lb or 0t 15cwt 0qtr 7lb 8oz

E&OE!

Nicely worked out  :first

These might come in handy for further calculations ....

i am pleased!
Logs delivered today.
Volume size , without resorting to lot tables and a slide rule the simple answer is about2.5 cubic metres.

I had a 10’ trailer full with high sides, appprox 5 cu metres for £250.
Last time it was £150 for the landy full so done ok!

Maybe another answer could be: "Not a lot unless it's been customised."   :tiphat

Did Wood & Pickett ever do a series? They had a go at Range Rovers.
