I assumed they were talking about the machine use only, not including the bucking, and stacking part of it. Rounds prepared and ready, stacked next to machine (and/or a 2nd person handling them, bringing over to the machine...). And since there is a conveyor to remove the splits, nothing needs to be done on that side. Hey, it took me the better part of Sunday with my new 22 ton splitter to prep, split, stack and clean up 1 to 1 1/2 cords. Of course I had to move the rounds which were stacked/rolled in-between two split stack racks, bring them about 20' to the closest spot I could get the splitter, then split, and throw the splits toward the area where the new stack was made, about 20 yards in the other direction.
