We recently had a load of logs strip off a truck while driving down a haul road. This appeared to be caused by a simple problem that could happen to anyone. It appears that the truck bunk was packed with snow and ice from the recent storm between the knife edges on the bunks. This will cause the knifes not to “cut” into and “bite” the logs to hold them in place and allowed them to slip off.
This can happen with snow and ice as well as bark chunks. It is imperative that you all look and keep your bunks cleaned out all year round.
If you have any questions on this, ask Joe or Troy for help.
