Combination Saw & Log Splitter
New from Pockrandt Mfg., Tamaqua. Pa., is the first commercially-available cordwood saw and log splitter combination.
Both units fit category 1 or 113-pt. hitches and can be operated at the same time since the saw runs off the tractor's pto, and the wood splitter off the hydraulic system.
The V-belt driven saw comes with a 30 in. dia. saw blade which revolves at 1,200 rpm at a pto speed of 450 rpm. Its table (32 in, long and 12 in. wide) is adjustable and has removable rear legs. The saw can make cuts up to 12 in. deep.
The log splitter handles logs up to 26 in. long. The ram head is driven by a double acting cylinder which splits logs by driving them against an 8 in. hardened steel wedge.
The unit can be ordered in combination, or just the saw or splitter, direct from the factory. The saw sells for $625, and the splitter for $525.
To order, or for more details, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Richard Pockrandt Mfg., Box 182, Tamaqua. Pa. 18252 (ph. 717 386 4149).
