It all depends on the kid, & how well Dad & Son work together. Some can handle it safely at 8, others not even at 20. Sidebar: I don't burn wood myself, pellets with nat gas as supplement in severe weather. Most people that handle firewood work too hard. Have a couple neighbors who started working together this year. The system works pretty good, but I am helping set it up. I have a welder, they don't. Next project is a catch table. They use the Bobcat with forks to build a pile of logs in a convenient place. When work day comes, load logs onto a waist-high rack for cutting. One guy then cuts logs to stove length & rolls chunks across table toward splitter. Other guy does the splitting & stacks into pallet baskets. When basket gets full, move it to storage area. Later move baskets to house with Bobcat as needed. Only have to handle it once after splitting. Load the whole kaboodle on snowmobile trailer to move from one guy's place to the other, about 1/4 mile. All the work is done at waist level, no bending over using chain saw, no hitting ground with saw, & no picking up chunks from ground. New table will attach to splitter to receive sawed logs & prevent split chunks from falling to ground. Willie
