I thought the standard check for tongue weight was "when the front wheels come off the ground or you cannot turn" was the max!?! Dusty B.

Exactly. That is why you have a brake on each rear wheel--for steering!!

Seasoned hedge (osage orange) around here brings $50 to $75 a rick (half cord) I will burn on average 3 cords a winter but I dont rely totally on the wood heat. I have my gas furnace as a back up. I have a big Wood Aire wood stove that can make the paint sag in the room that it is in. This time of year I prefer to burn hackberry and ash during the day and throw the hedge on at night. I got 2 cords of mixed stuff from my wifes uncle for free so I wont need much hedge until late January or February.
