    I really need to get rid of all the stuff I have piled around. Have rails, pads, sprocket segments and bolts from replacing the 955 last year. Two grills, hot water tank, complete 3 tom AC system, and a 30 pounds of misc copper. Never have brought in large loads of iron and such.

    Biggest thing I run into, is the guy which is close to me offers half or less then a guy 30 miles away. Could load in the dump truck and hope it doesn't get hung up coming out the gate, or load on my tag and pull with the dump

    Some times its not clear were a guy can haul more miles and make it work.At one time i was going to the far away more money place with every load even if i didnt have a big heavy load in the long run it worked out. I havent been going out of my way to find scrap to haul but i got a call about some light stuff 2 loads . After i started i thought i should have turned it down but i was only 2 miles from a place i could sell it to so in the end i mayed $50.00 a hour and got 2 drills one i fixed the other i may have fixed wilwaukees free.
