    I can well believe it can split some big wood, but tell me, how far will it launch those round bales?

    Well the reason it looks big is so we can split 30" long wood. that fits my boiler real good & its a lot less cuttin. So I used a 4"x40"x2.5" cylinder that I reworked the ports to 3/4" for more flow & a 22gpm haldex pump hooked to a 14 hp kohler, 3/4" port valves & 3/4" hose. I used a 30 gal drum for the hydraulic tank & put 25 gal. of oil in it. the wedge is 15" tall & so is the push plate. the 4 way is 15" wide & stationary. the work table is 4' long & 3' wide, the log lift is 24" wide & will lift all the wood you can put on it. it's 18 1/2 ' long from end of table to tongue. don't know what it weights but maybe close to the weight of my toyota pickup. I've pulled it to my sons house 80 miles away, 70 mph on the hiway never even wiggled. The log lift & the work table are real back savers. We've split 20 cord or better so far. works good. I think next summer I'll park it out by the pond under a shade tree so I can set in the seat and fish with adult beverages of course. prolly build some kind of can smasher for it. I'm not very good at this picture stuff, but i'll try. log splitter 001 (Medium).jpg log splitter 004 (Medium).jpg log splitter 001 (Medium).jpg log splitter 004 (Medium).jpg log splitter 006 (Medium).jpg log splitter 011 (Medium).jpg log splitter 013 (Medium).jpg log splitter 015 (Medium).jpg log splitter 016 (Medium).jpg

    Bioman is a hard act for follow. Mine was bought trashed, from a rental company for $300. It now has a Honda gx340.

    Timberwolf TWP1 back when it was new. Looks more or less the same now, minus a bit of paint on the high spots and wear points. The 4-way wedge is great, sometimes even wish I had a 6- or 8-way wedge to swap on for making smaller splits.

    I'd guess he was either honing his wood cutting skills, or showing off.
    Maybe both.:cool:

    Bah...

    Doesn't have a cup-holder.:p

    Man code section Q, paragraph 12, line 34 states, and I quote, "any outdoor power equipment so equipped with a seat must feature a beverage containment device within 16 inches of the operator's hand when said hand is in the approved operating position."

    I can't say I saw Dennis' milk crate in his picture and Triptester has a nice looking vertical style splitter. It's well off the ground so you can stand behind it and a nice work table. The ultimate was Biomans monster splitter. I can see a patent design coming out of that sucker!

    Line 36 goes on to state "...and, to properly accommodate operators that have become fatigued or inebriated, an auxiliary cold storage beverage containment device shall be mounted and reachable by the operator while in the seated operating position. Said auxiliary containment device shall have a capacity of not less than six individual twelve fluid ounce containers and shall maintain a temperature not to exceed thirty five degrees Fahrenheit for a minimum duration of six hours."
