    This gets posted about every 4 months. Does not make it any less cool though.

    Pretty cool,though I'd just get fat & lazy if I had it.Not sure it work as good on most of the gnarly & crooked stuff I'm usually getting.If I could afford to spend the big bucks,I'd just get a 40-50HP skidsteer w/ rubber tracks & grapple claw instead.Still split all my wood manually like always though.

    Thistle - have you ever seen the skid steer grapple claw setup working? I have the skid steer and have thought about getting one, but would like to know of someone who has seen it in action

    Never seen one in the woods,but an employer I worked for a few years back used one for ripping out steel studs,drywall,wood framing,partitions & other light demo inside a couple huge warehouses.

    Sure made short work of that stuff.

    I use a horizontal splitter, I would like to make it vertical, I'll have to look close at one.

    How high is the splitter bed? Might be easier to build a log lift for it.

    The only thing I noticed is all the logs are nice and straight NOT like what I get. I don't see any of the auto splitters getting into the limbs. Besides too fast, would not get you out of the house long enought to relax.

    I've used it,can post some pics later when I'm home. It's amazing how fast it made the process go. Use it to push the tree in the direction we wanted, moved log lengths to the splitting area and cleaned up the brush. Was all cleaned up in less than 30 minutes. Crazy how much easier it made the process.

    Heres the loader we used in my backyard. It was great, we used it to move what used to be my nice stacks. Then to push over the tree that was leaning the wrong way, and finally to move brush and logs over next to the stacks to buck and split.

    I see you used the loader to push a leaning tree over guess everything went well however this is dangerous I can't see how much lean or top is over loader. What can go wrong with doing this is when the cut is done or nearly through the top can go backward and over the loader better to put a line and pull it over out of harms way.Things can go so wrong so fast you don't have time to react until it's too late.
