    I asked a few heavy haul eco-cycle companies to get this job done, but they said their drive-train wouldn't be able to take the punishment.
    This job didn't have car access, and it was too far to push a wheelbarrow, so the only option was to use the heavy haul trailer-train.
    Just as well i have dual range; front derailleur operated crawler gearing to get things going, because the pictured firewood was mighty heavy Australian gum;driving the tyres into the ground, causing a hellish amount of resistance, trying to get the tonnage moving.

    Thankfully the SickBikeParts twin-row Ultra Heavy Duty freewheel Bearing system is still working to perfection, and able to take the punishment; haul-out after haul-out after haul-out.

    At present, half of the tree has been hauled home, and the rest will done tomorrow.

    For the most part, the firewood haul-out is complete, expect for the small branches will i will grab tomorrow.
    The only thing that will be left is a bunch of leaves.

    Below is the progress from yesterday's photos.

    But to recap, the first photo is at the start of the haul-out, and the second photo shows what can be achieved with a dual range, front derailleur operated sprocket stack, and the SickBikeParts heavy duty shift kit, in combination with 6 trailers!!!

    Nice job. I'm willing to bet that you're a candidate for first prize in the category of 'most work squeezed out of a happy time engine'.

    I squeeze a heck of a lot of work out of a Chinese 2-stroke bicycle engine. It's not a toy - it's a freight hauler!
