    I think I'm gonna have a hard time justifying the outlay to my better half... :lol:

    Man, that saw eats the wood! What is that, some kind of diamond chain? Where do I get one for my saw? :cheese:

    Then what I'd need would be a stacking robot. :lol:

    My BIL has been in the firewood business for over 40 years, he has quite a large customer base and he still splits his logs one a single splitter one at a time, doesnt even put a 4 way on his splitter. Everytime I talk to him hes 30-40 cords behind in orders. Ive asked him why he doesnt get a processor or something that splits faster so he wouldnt have to turn customers away. he never has an answer, hes just set in his ways. I would think he would make his monry back in one or two seasons with something like above.

    Man that's cool! He really chugs around on that thing...wonder how often they have to sharpen that chain?

    Awesome video-thanks for posting it!

    JA, me too. I would sell it and the skid steer and have enough cash to heat with natural gas for the rest of my life.

    I would like to see the sawdust directed away from the split wood. I like my wood clean ! The video shows the sawdust blowing right on the splits.

    That is north of 30K, we looked in to getting one for processing in the woods. The chain is pond and deck chain, much bigger than standard...
