I am seriously considering building a firewood processor that will handle logs up to 20" diameter and any length. My question to you folks is, would there be interest from a homeowner to have someone come in with a smaller sized portable processor to cut and split your truck load of logs for a reasonable price? My thought is to be able to cut any length from say 16" to 30" and split the pieces, have them drop to a conveyor and be piled in 1 or 2 places. I believe I could handle a standard log truck (about 6 cords) in about 5-6 hours pretty realistically. The cost is projected to be around $300 a load to process so the homeowner only has to stack the pile of split firewood. There are many benefits: wood is split to start seasoning much faster than the homeowner can do themselves, the homeowner doesn't need to own and maintain a pricey chainsaw or 2, the homeowner won't need to own and maintain a pricey wood splitter, the homeowner won't have to worry about their physical well-being as in sore backs, shoulders and other injuries that could occur, and the homeowner will get the mess cleaned up that much faster and make the "better half" much happier! The only downside would be it would add some cost to the homeowner's total heating bill. It would still be much cheaper than paying "The Man". Thoughts and comments please!
