2-Stage Splitter Cuts Firewood, Fenceposts
"As far as I know, there's no other splitter on the market like it," says Harold Smith, North Jackson, Ohio, about his 2-stage splitter that'll handle both firewood in 16 in. lengths and logs up to 10 ft. long.
Smith first made a splitting table with a long H beam down the center and pieces of 8-in. channel iron on either side. A 4-way splitting head mounts toward the front to split 16-in. long chunks into four pieces of firewood at a time. To split logs up to 10 ft. long, a single splitting wedge is mounted at the end of the center H-beam. The same 6-in. dia. by 18-in. long hydraulic cylinder is used for both splitting operations. Power is supplied by tractor hydraulics.
