That is a beautiful beast, I can see my wife sitting in that chair.I'm getting old would love to have a log lifter , did you design it yourself or from a plan. Could you tell me the length of the cylinder and lifter?
Milk crates? We don't need no steeking milk crates!
16 Ton (allegedly) Ramsplitter.
OK, here she is, dug it out today to trim some long splits and buck up some long poles I had lying around.
Wife bought this for me over Labor Day weekend. Love it!
Here it is a 4ton Ryobi splitter perfect for a tailgate. You guys and your seats are making me want to weld up a hitch adapter seat out of an old bike rack with a bottle cap remover and a mini fridge maybe even a radio .
This is the American CLS 24 Ton Vertical/Horizontal splitter, getting ready to split the Red Oak scrounge.
I know this thread is all about "dirty" pictures but IIRC the "CaterSplitter" was getting a paint job, did that ever happen?
Nah. Right now its getting a repair job. Lent it to a friend two weeks ago and one of the nuts on one of the two hold down straps holding the hydraulic cylinder to the I beam vibrated off and one came lose on the other strap. They didn't realize anything was wrong and kept using it. It tore apart the pusher plate. That was a poor/weak design anyway and there was never anything attaching the rear of the hydraulic cylinder to the I beam so I took it to a friend who is fabbing a new better pusher plate and a new hydraulic cylinder mount.
And since its down for repair anyhow I'm going to finally mount the 16 gpm pump as well as a new detent valve. Should be good to go in two weeks. It's split about 4.5 cords for me and 6 for my friend who barrowed it so far. Looking forward to trying it out after the upgrade.
Wonder if it can be tuned to "roll some coal" out the exhaust while smashing through some knotty rounds.
I just see it now... flatbiller with metal mulisha shirts running a wood splitter cause it can "roll the coal"
Log lift design compliments of the Egyptians.
Here we go, first one splitter, 2nd set up to lift rocks, 3erd one set to rip out stumps, multie purpus splitter, I made this so I could use it for alot more things than just split wood,now by just pulling a couple pins and put beam on I can lift rocks etc, pull stumps,etc, goes on and on,
Pretty slick build, Ozzie
This is my smaller splitter,it has a wench and tongs so I can cast but it is used to pick up loader all hyd.controled

This is my bigger splitter.
Ok WhitePine2, you win so far I think, and I wasn't sure anybody was going to upstage bioman's machine.
Some of these wood splitters look like they could do double duty as trebuchets to ward off any Huns or Vandals.
Nice splitters WP.I really like that tong on winch set up never seen one before. I have some standing dead bull pines here ,3ft + at the base, leaving them alone because can't handle 3ft X 2ft rounds. I'd like to give them a try probably 2+ cords a tree of pretty dry wood.
With that much wood processing hardware you must get your wood by the logging truck load. What is that rig to right in your first big splitter pic, looks like a steam tractor?
Can't find a pic of it off hand but got the usual 27 ton Troy Bilt splitter, but added a 4 way to it. Hope a video will suffice.
Here is mine. Split a couple of logs with it today.
Didn't think to take a pix of it mounted on the tractor.
I don't use it very often, I also have a 3pt mount hydraulic and an electric splitter.
Thats crazy looking mid-evil stuff.
