Caterpillar log splitter
"My neighbor and good friend D.C. Dobson found a good use for parts from an old Caterpillar front-end loader, as well as discarded farm machinery parts from around the neighborhood," says John Stem, Smyrna, Tenn.
"He made a rugged and well-built log splitter using the hydraulic pump, controls and cylinder from the old Cat loader. The splitter is transported on wheels and hubs from an old silage chopper and is driven by the pto drive from an old manure spreader. He assembled all the parts on a 12-in. "H" beam with scrap channel and angle iron from his scrap pile. He used heavy plate steel to form the wedge and the push box attached to the piston rod on the hydraulic cylinder."
