    I have never seen a gas splitter so small before, talk about portable.

    Engine turns hydro pump in tank. Runs to hydro motor that turns the screw located in the pipe. Or at least that is how it appears. You can see QD's on the back of the hydro motor in the last pic and in the 3rd pic it appears that there is a hole in the heavy block, that I would assume is for the screw to turn in.

    Or I could just be full of it. :lol:

    Exactly. 150 tops.I'd spend $50 instead on a good maul.With the mini splitter max capacity of just 12",the maul isnt anymore work & it will be faster in straight grain stuff that small.

    On CL here folks always list splitters for premium bucks. Most new looking ones are over $1k, used mind you. Old rusty diy splitters than need a 'tune up' a few hundred less, 700-800, no thanks, not when I can get the brand new TS husky/speeco for 900-1000.

    Looks like the splitting wedge is actually riding on the cylinder. Two of the long bolts serve as a guide while the other two bolts connected to the black steel block on the end are pulling the wedge towards the plate as the cylinder extends. Could be some kind of hydraulic driven screw drive inside a pipe I guess. Pretty wild. Looks tougher than those little electric deals.
