    well some of ya have seen this before. im in the works of this hand made industrial duty logsplitter. it has been splitting alot already. has a brand new 6.5 hp briggs and a 24" x 4" hydro cyl, with a 16 gal per min barns pump. 200 psi about 20ish ton.

    well getting the logs up on a horizontal splitter aint an easy task. heres the solution. i just gat my crane on yesterday.

    has a 24" x 2" hydro cylinder. should be able to easily tackle logs up to 500-600 lbs. the steel angle iron tongs have teeth to grip. all i need to do is get another valve bank and hoses to operate it.

    collor on the bottom of crane with the pin in it allows it to be raised up an additional 2'.

    Next is a one man sawmill and a solar kiln.
    You could make a few bucks with some decent logs.

    ya those verticles are cool. but with a crane its as easy too. + i dont have to bend over every time. i have aluminum table that catches wood. when its full i toss it into a wheel barrow. the boat was chainsawed up and destroyed 13 years ago. that trailer i gave to a guy here in town with bad wheel bearings. he took it to an abandoned house where it sat 13 years. i reclaimed it. and built this.:wink:
    and my i beam is 8" wide and tall and 1/2" thick x 9' long. probably weighs as much as that entire splitter and the pile of wood there splitting.

    ya thats about as efficient as it gets. im actually gonna cut and grind up a 4 way wedge to slip over mine to split small stuff into 4 in one shot. only prob i have is no welder. i get all the pieces ready and then find a buddie that will weld it. my neighbor that had a nice hobart moved this summer.:angry:
