Back Saving Splitter Eliminates Log Lifting
The trailer-mounted splitter is available either as a self-contained unit, powered by an 8-hp. Kohler engine, or as a plug-in model for your tractor hydraulics. Both use a 4-in. cylinder to apply 37,6001bs0 of pressure with either a 24 or 30-in. stroke.
"It just takes seconds to lock it into the tilt position with the built-in winch. Works at a slant, so gravity holds the logs in position," points out Charles Morehouse, of Morehouse Welding and Sales, Dassel, Minn., the manufacturer.
The two-wheeled trailer is designed for over-the-road travel, with automotive-type spindles and tires. Weighs 500 lbs. total.
Sells for $1,175.
