Im getting older, older than my age 44 and cord wood is killing me....... Broken back and bad legs w/ arthritis makes it tough to cut and split a cord of wood each day..... I have been selling firewood since I was 12 years old so this is not a new venture.  With a processor I will be able to continue.
last years ice storm raised hell with my wood lot and now I have firewood logs everywhere...
I have had enough w/ the chain saw and old clunker log splitter !!! I could easily drag up 200 cord withing the next month to process. My son who is a little person and  in a wheel chair can run the machine and do something to help out, he's always looking to do more/new things........
I also run my sawmill and grow 3-5 acres of vegetables farmstand and farmers market. Diversification is the only way to survive and we are doing it !!!!!

You hit that nail right on the head, Bull!  A little bit of this and a little bit of that is what will see ya through the lean times. ;)

Good luck with your machine. I bought a model 2020 back in 1990. Everyone thought I was nuts paying 35g for a splitter. There 3 times that now for the same machine. Well here I am 19 years later and still running the same machine. There a good machine. I've had good luck and few repairs. My machine has an Iszusu diesel that runs and runs and runs always starts no matter how cold even down to well below 0. Even with a processor it's still a lot of work. I found the best way to handle the wood is to make some kind of a pit or bin with a floor and walls you can push against to use a loader to load. I use a skidsteer with forks to load the live deck then switch to the bucket to load the split wood on my dump truck. I work full time at my sawmill and do wood mornings before work and deliver nights after work. If you want to know anything or if I can help PM me and will talk.

did you go for the straight EZ or opt for the live deck?  the 1610 looks like a very sweet machine for the bucks.

firefighter, you forgot the most impotant thing, the ATV is hers you just get to use it more... I bought the wife a dual wheel wheel barrow for her birthday, a ridding lawn mower for mothers day, a roto tiller just because I love her, a chain saw for our anniversary etc !!! Remember in marriage we must share burdens and responsibilites...... 8)
