DOES ANYONE KNOW ANY GOOD SIGHTS THAT WOULD HAVE PLANS ON BUILDING WOOD SPLITTERS; ESPECIALLY IF THEY RUN OFF A TRACTOR.

This one has its own pump that slides onto the PTO shaft. BTW, I second the others who say "BE CAREFUL". Just yesterday, a chunk of frozen rock maple popped out quicker than you can blink and whacked my brother in the knee. OUCH!
Sorry this picture doesn't show the splitter better.

Hey Less,
Looks like your shed roof fell of your VAC. This is the first time I saw it. Looks like it's still in pretty good shape.

You wanna swap for something of yours? How about a DC or and SC?

The fella up the road still has a 52 DC for sale. At least I think it's still there.

I made one that fits on the three point hitch and runs off the tractor hydraulics. Wasn't hard at all. Used an I beam, welded together a wedge, and some pipe for the three point attachment. The only thing I had to buy was the cylinder and hoses, I used a 30" x 3". I was able to connect the handle onto the existing lever to control the cylinder. I use it on a case 930 and IH 1466, be careful, I heard that if you use it on a small tractor that it might be slow. Don't stand overtop on on the side of the wood being split, sometimes the two halves come off with a lot of force, I would say enough to break you leg or nose. The best thing you can do is go to a store and look at one, it is really fairly simple. Let me know if you need additional information.

LOL
