If I had enough work to need a 5 grand splitter I think a processor would be in order ;)

What would be nice is if someone made a $5000 woodsplitter that would be ready to accept components to turn it into a wood processor. I haven't seen one yet and maybe it's a stupid or impossible idea.

I read about the IRON OAK-COMMERICAL one in TIMBER LINE which mostly deals with HIGH dollar stuff but in Jan issue they had a lot of mills,planers ect. that are normal for most of us. For my own use Ive allways said I can do better with a mall and not mess with standard splitters.But now (62+) my back cant handle bending over much.
the one in timber line told we 4200 Delivered.Almost temped if I can get my son-in-law to go halves.This guy in the article is runing two, he up graded and kept the older one and says there great.Im told "your geting to old for all this stuff" I wonder who would say a think like that

Processes start new around 14 grand new without a conveyor.   The trouble with them is crooked and small wood slows them way down.   If your cutting mesquite or that crooked Texas live oak I don't know if it would be worth the trouble or not but for that pine y'all have in east Texas it would be great.

I noticed that too.Most are fussy about size and crooks,ect.  I like to be able to split the nasty stuff that nobody wants to mess with.Im still in piny woods around Palestine.syp will burn your house down.I have a small saw mill to deal with pine and anything that will make a board.Thats what is nice about hardwood.Its all usable.That splitter is a compromise and still the little women says im nuts. O well.

There is a post debarker an this site.  I saw one operating in W. Springfield MA 2 years ago at the Forestry Expo. I think they do them in gas, electric or pto.  I have thought about trying to build one.

Wiam that first one looks good.As you said now if we can just build one. I have lots of syp that needs thinning.I have run some 6" or so thru the mill with mixed results.If your carefull and match the dia. up you can mill 2 at a time and when you get flats you can speed up.I kind of like a few 3" sq. post for light fence post.Ive had store bought treated ones in the ground for over 10yrs. and still look new.
