I am collecting plastic one time use and broken wood pallets for fire wood.
The plastic pallets lay in contact with the dirt, i put 4 to 6 plastic pallets together and I stack round, split, ripped logs along with scrap lumber and chopped up pallets until the stack reaches 4 to 6 feet high.
The 2 year old and up fire wood will be burned in my coal furnace this winter. I'm not doing $300 power bills again this winter.
I have salvaged some of the nicer hard wood planks and put them on my lumber pile.
I have set aside the nicest whole pallets and I will likely resell them.

I got a 20 pallet load with the leaf this morning.
The round trip depleted more than 70% of the battery pulling the trailer 12 miles empty and 12 miles back stacked with pallets as high as I can stack them.

I was also able to use the leaf to jump start my diesel tractor, the battery was totally flat from me leaving it on 2 days before.
My big 2 gauge jumper cables did the job.

So the higher discharge rates don't seem to be causing any thermal issues?

Typical motor failure mode is roasting winding wires until insulation fails. Duncan over at DIY cars is typical.

There are sensors on the system to warn of overheat?

It has liquid cooling for the motor.
The battery can over heat if it never gets a chance to cool off, it gets over 100F during the day here but drops down to the 60s most nights allowing the battery to cool.

I was told I should get a pickup if im going to get pallets.
Ha. Hahahhahaha.
Obviously they haven't seen how many pallets I put on my trailer.
I usually get between 12 and 20 pallets.
I get about 2 miles per kwh. Still about 60mpge.

So with trailer and pallets about 500 wh/mi. What are the differences loaded and empty? I'm trying to understand loading effects the pallets provide.

Not bad since the ranger averages 430. Haven't retried since I moved to flat and level.
