    Looks like those boys need to get a cant hook. In the end, I do wonder if it is a time saver. For sure not having to wrestle those big logs is worth a lot but thank God we don't always cut those big trees. We don't have any here and I have no desire to handle the big saws any more either.

    even if they ran out of big rounds you could 10 12" rounds in it at once and press them all through. And with the slow cycle time there are still 20 splits in a wack. can you split a round like that into 20 pieces in less than 1 minute?

    My guess is they're getting that 200 tons from a 16 gpm pump. rotflmao.gif No danger of getting your hand caught in that thing.

    I hope they are running that thing in turtle mode and it has a bunny button somewhere. That would drive me nuts.

    That appears to have about a 2" cylinder making it for a very low tonnage machine. Not knocking, just pointing it out. I have a low tonnage splitter also (about 15 ton) that is pretty fast. I love it when working with the easy stuff.
