    I watched one of those wood processors work - it put a cord of wood on the truck in 11 minutes.
    The guy who owns it admits to 1200 cord per year.

    I was thinking about the 'what no stacking?' part myself. But, that would be seasoned wood coming out the end according to some firewood guys! I guess it would work great as long as you have perfectly straight, uniform diameter logs - though I've got some gnarly pieces setting by the splitter right now that would probably stop it dead in its tracks.

    Does the rotating barrel thing remove some of the debris on the wood?

    cant see vids at work dang it.
    too cool, but i dont get why it drys/seasons faster?

    http://www.chomper.net/Seasoning Study.html

    "conventionally sawn and split firewood processed from nine species of wood took an average of 127 plus days to reach the same dryness (moisture content) that Chomper processed wood achieved in 60 days. Chomper processed wood can be sold as seasoned wood much sooner than conventionally processed wood thereby increasing your profits."

    Only problem I have with these is.....most if not all the oak I get is 30+ inches across. The wood in these videos is small in comparison.

    Nice, but, but... I'm with the commenter who said "now take away the birch and feed it some elm".

    For a pro who's processing wood from a uniform-growth farm, though... very nice. All the better to lower the cost of firewood split and stacked on the truck!
