    Did I at least inspire you? I'm so hungry, and then there's my boy, Little Johnny No Shoes, and the wife needs the implants, and how will we make it through the winter with no Super Cedars, plus I gotta stock up on the Canadian Hunter. Don't be shellfish. :down:

    Hey Charlie,
    Great job on that innovative splitter you built! From a maintenance standpoint it should be much easier to service plus with the engine located away from the splitter section I would think it would last longer too..

    here is my GF and my free wood splitter. its probably a 15 ton but splits pretty much everything i cut down. im almost positive the crank bearings are going because the motor viborates like crazy. but as long as it keeps starting i(and GF) keep splitting with it.

    These are mine. The one on the right I use for free (actually I fix what ever is broken on it before I return it). Its got a 11 hp briggs and a 5 inch cylinder. It must be a 28 - 32 ton. The one on the left has an 8 hp Honda GX and is a 25 ton I bought for $435 used.
