George Adams: Why is it the home made splitters are better than the commercial splitters????
Fred Kalakay: Nice one! You may like to Check out Gorillabac log splitter lift or you tube Gorillabac hoist crane that fits many commercial splitters like Speeco, dirty hands, black diamond, forest king and many others. Get Your Wood Up.... and the rest of the job done
Sammy Young: Very NICE. Are you using a power beyond valve ?

shepherdsrus: Hi,its a 9hp engine and a 16 gpm pump.Thanks Alan
KartAnimal29: What size motor and pump do you have on this? Nice Build
MrEasyrhino: Very nice!Great job.My back is very jellous!lol
PapaCharlieWhiskey: @nastydog131. Sounds like you want a wood processor. Nice little unit the fellow built!
nastydog131: I really love this splitter ! it would be nice to have the end of the table with hydraulics to throw the wood int the truck ??
shepherdsrus: @MrLeonard55 Hi,the cylinder is 96mm or just under 4" in diameter.Thanks Alan
shepherdsrus: @dean1johnson Hi,the ram only has a 18" stroke(i only need logs 12" long) so this speeds up the cycle time a lot.Thanks Alan
MrLeonard55: Very nice. What size cylinder?
BigBearHuskyMusher: That table is nice. fast cycle. I want one
Tim R: WOW, sure beats my homemade axe! :P
warddan2002: Allan, really like what you have done here. Now that you've built a couple, do you have any plans you went off of? Any chance, you'd be willing to help a guy build one? I would be happy to document my building of one and put the plans out on the web if that would be ok with you. You can surely be proud of your work.
A couple of other qs...I notice the ram, in reverse, backs out automatically (you don't have to stand and hold it), how'd you do that?
N.E.Arkansas Trash Trucks&Lottery: It does a good job! But that engine is pretty loud i would wear some ear plugs if I used it for very many hours.Thanks
