    Crappy quality video but cool splitter set up. They split a face cord in 3 1/2 minutes in another video.

    Man, that double splitter is a production machine. That sucker was really making firewood.

    Another cool set up... I like the way you can split with a single wedge or four way depending on where you place the wood.

    Man - those guys don't jack around with the speed of those splitters. They are really moving.

    Wonder if they make a bare bones unit? I don't need to ride/drive my splitter anywhere.

    Yeah, you should see the prices on Timberwolf machines. That is why I am going to learn how to weld and build my own. Cannot justify spending $5,000+ just for a splitter. Now, $5,000 for a splitter AND welder, that is a different story. Knowing how to weld, priceless.

    I was not going to feed them, there are a couple just wandering around eating grass on the land to the east of me, so I thought I could just borrow one.

    Plus it is easily scalable, need double the power, just add another tread mill.

    I noticed that the vertical type is very common in the UK. Seems to be the norm. This one works out at $4,000.

    It did occur to me that if they replace the hydraulics with a flywheel it would be much quicker. If top heavy.
