I use to rent a splitter from a worker at work. he would rent it out by the day. I decided to build one so I took a lot of pictures of the splitter I rented. I had a 10hp Tecumseh engine and in 1982 I started on it. I bought a used piece of 4-inch I-beam. Wheels from a boat sales. I had the hyd reservoir made at a local metal shop. I bought the pump and control valve from Northern Hydraulics in MN. The cylinder was bought at the local government sales. It was a steering cylinder off the 8 ton Goer. They moved that auction later on near DC. When it would hit a knot it would downshift. Hal

If you have a tractor with the necessary hydraulics, a 3pt I think works great. I have had a tsc unit for about 12 yrs. It is the right unit for me, no constant bent over position, exactly the right speed ( JD 60 just above idle ). Both horizonal and vertical.
