A beast of a splitter



That wedge is backed up by a piece a railroad rail.



Pump, tank an controls, it's got another spindle there so I could add in another cylinder ifin I wanted. The pump an controls came off a forklift.



An overall shot before I got the motor set back in place, an that weren't no easy task fer one feller! I used an electric hoist of mine chained ta a stout branch a my walnut tree. Just about wasn't enough of any of us ta get er back up there!



One shot a the motor.



An the other end. That girl shouldn't have ta do much more then a steady idle ta split most wood.

I got some used tires from a buddy a mine, that axle came off a huge grain elevator. When she's all tagether an a runin, were gonna paint here IH red an white.

Made the fuel tank outa an old 20 lb LP tank, gotta get that mounted yet.

I thin were gonna mount a winch an crane on the back end of er, that way we can hoist up them big logs an use it fer some other tasks ta boot.
