Let see some pics of your splitter. Love looking at different splitters, whether they be home made or bought, as it populates ideas for when another one is built.

I got mine from www.allwoodlogsplitters.com and it is the Oak series. I got it late in the season last year, and only got about 12 hours on it, but it greatly increased production for me. The log lift saved my back, and well I don't split without a log lift any more!!

This was the day I got it home, and got it in the garage to install an hour meter.

Just got home from the woods, ready to put it away for the day.

My cutting buddy, running the biggest chunk of the day and the first time running it, testing out the different wedges. That was a chunk of red oak what went down in a storm last summer.

When I got this pile it was just a beam and a cylinder on wheels. I put a 10hp B&S motor with a 16gpm pump on it, and added the log lift and table later on. It's seen steady action for the last seven years, about 15 cord a year. I have an adjustable wedge in the works, and a bigger motor/pump shortly.

I don't know if I put this picture on or not .It's a homebuilt ,a little over kill .W10 72 beam,5 inch Parker -Hannifin cylnder 16 GPM pump,11 HP Briggs .Tiltable .Took about 4 days of farting around to build it .

The tank/axle is a piece of 8" galvanized water pipe with Ford Escort spindles .The SOB is heavy .Somewhere around 8 gallons of Dextron II in the tank .It doesn't get hot .Fact I'm not even running it at full engine speed nor full pressure .

Well I guess I must have shown it somewhere because it's already in my photo cache .

If working with iron wood and rubber rubber tree I can do better than a cord per hour :)
