My splitter used to be one o those low to the ground critters. I built up axle struts and put a pneumatic caster under the end, and 3pt pins on it so I can use it while standing up straight.
Built the jib pole this winter, to pick up heavy blocks. In the process of building a small hyd. elivator to load the split wood without having to pick it up of the ground. This American spliter, built in Black River NY, has split millions of blocks since the 70s when I got it. I have worn out 3 Briggs engines on it, and the 4th has a years worth of splitting, on it.
