2-Way Splitter Tips Up For Big Chunks
"My son used mostly scrap steel to build this log splitter, which works better and is more versatile than anything I've seen on the market," says Wayne Topp, Binbrook, Ontario.
  What makes the splitter different is that the splitting table tilts up from horizontal to vertical in seconds simply by pulling a pin. So if you have a big chunk, rather than lifting it onto the table, you simply tilt the splitter up and roll the log into place.
  The 2-way splitter is powered by a 24-in. cylinder that was purchased new. It mounts on a 6-ft. long, 8-in. I-beam that rests on a piece of heavy square tubing. It's fitted with a 3-pt. hitch for moving from place to place.
  The splitter can be disconnected from the tractor for stand-alone use thanks to legs at either end. "It's stable enough to operate without being hooked to the tractor's 3-pt. hitch. We power it with hydraulics from our International 434. My days of wielding an axe are over," says Topp.
