Buzz saw/wood splitter combo
Merland Clark, of Elgin, Neb., built a hydraulic-powered combination buzz saw and log splitter that's self-powered and pulls down the road behind his tractor or pickup.
"A 14 hp Briggs and Stratton engine powers a 10 gpm hydraulic pump. A selector valve is used to divert oil flow to the saw or splitter. The saw is controlled by a free-wheeling valve and a variable speed valve. The splitter uses a 4 by 24-in. cylinder. I made the oil tanks from thin wall 8-in. dia. pipe.
"The unit is convenient because you can leave it hooked up to the pickup and throw the wood into the pickup as you cut and split it."
Clark has begun manufacturing the splitter-saw combo.
