Man, what a beast, nice splitter, never have to hoist those huge rounds up on to the splitter, I like it.
I finally got around to putting the tarp back on it
Im thinking about a tarp of some sort also. The equipment in the garage looks close to new even though they are almost and more than two decades old. Keeping the weather off of the equipment is so much helpful to the life of the equipment.
i've been thinking about building a little shed to store it in down by the processing area...
I split and stacked about 2 cord today. My little speeco still running as good as new!
Going to a sale on Saturday and this monster might follow me home...
Lloyd - take a good look at the pump. PTO pumps can be a wide range of sizes and pressures. On the plus side they are usually a single stage because power (HP) is typically not an issue. If that cylinder is as big as it looks (I would guess a 5 or 6”), you will want a pump that runs 16GPM. Even higher would be better or its going to be painfully slow.
V-iron - Splitter is looking good, man.
I don't plan to run it by pto. But I hear ya probly won't use that cylnder either , more so looking to use it to make a different splitter, but most likely it will go for more than I want to spend.
This is truly huge. I like!
The auctioneer listed it as a 140 ton splitter. For some reason I think that's false. More like 40 I'm thinking. The guy also has a hydraulic pump from a aircraft carrier it's the size of a pickup truck, I should buy both. Haha
...I am thinking multi-split box wedge with a flat top and an arm that works with cylinder to pull the remaining log part back on the beam. Outfeed conveyor. Log lifter and mini fridge.
.... And car crusher!
Freezing rain and snow tonight Put
Put a big dead ash on the ground.
You've got to love it, no limbing, or bark, straight to the honey.
Gave the TWP-1 some TLC tonight. New air filter, carb, checked the hydraulic fluid level, aired up the tires to spec. Hopefully going to get 3 cord split up and stored tomorrow for winter of 2019-20.
I'm sitting good for a couple of seasons. All this is headed to a couple neighbors that can't cut anymore. Great morning in the woods with good friends and my dad.
Your a good neighbor..
That's just what we do out here. I grew up hunting, fishing, and camping in all these woods. Now it's time to return that generosity to the land owners that let us "kids" use their lands.
So the three cord didn't happen Saturday. 11 degrees out with 25 mph wind gusts. I worked in the garage instead.
I am starting to like the luxury of being two years ahead on wood.
Brought it over to my friends house, I've still got two or more cords waiting to be stacked
