Looks positively horizontal in the photo and also to be the non-OHV model but we'll see what arrives. Would like to see a similar write up about the smaller 22 ton units, maybe one of us. A new engine from HF isn't too expensive should the B&S;prove troublesome, I trust the engine will actually be fine. If not a guy could buy a Robin engine and then sell the B&S;. If a guy were to do that then he could up the HP and then use the big 16GPM pump for another 150$ and get the same 22 tons but have a way shorter cycle time, let the mods begin! I am actually still fretting over this freight thing. Me somehow lifting a 600# oblong object from a 4 foot high semi deck to the ground while the semi trailer is parked in the street blocking traffic. My other option is to have him drop the splitter in a big box store's parking lot 1/4 mile away if he wants to use, or has, a lift gate.
