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'.
