I been studying this one for a while now... I just don't cut enough firewood to justify the cost...

That would be worth a try, some things I am curious about it, can you stop the pusher mid way, re-engage, funny how it meshes, they show the pinion after a few hundred cords, states it has no visible wear, assuming all the debris, must be some kind of dry open gear lube ?

Only other thing is what about the real gnarly, crotch and burl, or tough sections of elm, the hydraulic splitter will do all of that for me, but that DR could cetainly be a time and fuel saver. I like those tough pieces, they are dense and burn a lot longer.

Here's a log splitter my friend and I made about 5 years ago and added a log lift this past fall. The undercarriage is a 48 chevy pu rearend with the closed driveshaft tube that made an excellent tongue for mounting the beam. The beam is from a house and we reinforced it with steam pipe and super bar. The engine is a B & S from a Snapper lawn mower that I had and it's electric start(big plus) and you can tow this down the road at hwy speed. It's hooked to my trailer in the pics which is attached to my IH 454. I think we've got about $900 in it now with the addition of the log lift.
