Re: Firewood Processing

Any splitter that can tear wood apart like this got my vote...
It did a good job today. I found nothing that it could not split.

I'd been looking at splitters a few months ago, thought I saw a few box store units with funky names on the engines, which matched the brand of the splitter. Sort of like the old Sears/Tecumseh arrangement.

Re: Firewood Processing

Work weekend at our cabin in the mountains. I spent Saturday morning splitting with my nephew:



We borrow the splitter from a friend that lives down the road rather than drag one 150 miles to camp. Anyway, weather was perfect, and we had several trees already bucked and stacked, so we filled our wood shed with two years worth of wood, and then added an extra rank to the front of year 2 side:



And an extra rank across the length of the shed in the back:



Pretty much complete a year's worth of firewood processing in a single day in mid-May every year.

X728 - 62" Deck, 54" Blade, 42" JD Sweeper,JD 15S Cart
TracVac 880 Material Collection, Gandy 36T Spreader
