    Man this thing packs them so tight we can barely get them out of the box.. Good for all day work but it took us about 20 minutes to get it to break out of the box..

    I bet, I was suprised how much my little wonder packs em in, no need to get in and jump em down. I use the old pallet, with a tire on the backside, tied to a tree method.....lol

    Ya I put a tire and rim behind the pallet and run a chain through it all and chain it so the chain has a low center of gravity and run it out the tailgate.(I use a tire and rim so it dont rip the pallet to shreads) Two ways to unload it...use another truck to pull out which is easiest or tie it to a tree with a tow strap......must stop short of falling off the tailgate and back up....lol or will have a pallet tied to a tree burried in leaves.
