oh cmon les, your trees don't have leaves any morn mine do - you just wanted to make me feel bad :)

definitely nice splitter though - mine only bites 2 1/2 footers.

Where did that ram come from? I would like to make a posthole digger similiar in design. My gravity feed digger makes great polished granite divots in the dirt, but very poor holes.

Les, I'm impressed with both, the tractor as well as the splitter. If you run out of wood to split, you might find work for that rig breaking up concrete slabs for contractors. Or, perhaps you could drive pilot holes for fence post.......gfp

Well, the tractor ain't very impressive. It's just a tired old '52 Case VAC. And that big gomming splitter on the back makes me real nervous when going up any incline at all. If I get a Saginaw hitch for my Farmall M, that splitter will have a new horsey to ride on.

That's a long cylinder oh her. Looks like you could just about split rails with it. Ho lon's the stroke? Nice set up.

I ain't never measured it but it's more than 4'. I believe it came from the outrigger on a log truck. It's a home made rig that I bought from a guy who decided that sugaring was too much work.

Wow! Impressive set up there. I wish I could justify getting a tractor sometimes, just for the PTO on 'em. I have a homebuilt splitter, horizontal with a table. Works good, tows easy. Nothing like this sweetheart though.
Mine is going to get some exercise this weekend, splitting for next year.
