How about the good ol' cordwood saw?


Yessir Freddy! We put up 12 to 14 cords every summer with one powered by an ancient Briggs with no muffler. It only ran when we did the wood. Still have the motor but junked the old saw machine and the same for the one I inherited from my uncle. My uncles had a flywheel that helped get through the cut.

SO many wood splitters are way too low. In 1979 my Dad bought a hydraulic splitter (still have it). When it was brand new we cut it apart, raised it 6 inches & welded it back together.

Yep, I always thought it weird that manufacturers thought the only people that split wood were Chinee or Midgets--not real conducive to us 6 footers ;)

Here you go. I'm not sure how much one of these costs, but I'm guessing A LOT:

I figure if you can afford that tractor powering that thing, it's probably just a drop in the bucket. I bet that thing has heat AND A/C ... :o

That's what I thought, too. They have a self-powered version, too. If you're burning enough wood to need that thing, then you either have a firewood business, or a huge house.

To heck with the wood processor, where do I buy wood that's all 6 to 8" round and straight as an arrow? You don't get wood like that in these parts!

The other problem is you will need another tractor for the other work like moving real logs not balsa.

When I was running a hydraulic splitter before I burned rocks I had my splitter up on blocks. It sucked how low it was. Although, I did make splitting wood kind of fun. Throw a log on, hit the lever, open a beer, wait for it to reset, throw another log on.

You can get the tractor for less then a new truck. I am with Freddy on the nice round straight logs! :o Lets see how it works with some knarly Downeast stuff. My next door neighbor had a processor that made that thing look like a tinker toy. But you have to sell a bunch of wood to make a go of it. I think it is still in the area being used by another hopeful operator.

I couldn't watch the whole video. I kept thinking to myself, 'Is that *censored* music? It has to be *censored* music.'

Then I kept waiting for the naked blond chick to run out of somewhere exclaiming, "I can rub your log!!!"
