Which splitter/conveyor combo to chose?
« on: October 25, 2014, 10:41:11 AM »
Looking into which splitter/conveyor combo to get. Looking at the American super with log lift pans and six way and their 20 conveyor. Also looking at built rites 11 how with all options and their 20 ft conveyor.  So far leaning more towards built rite as I like the wedge design and like that it has a larger cylinder and ten way wedge option.

If you like red and silver paint, type 'log splitter' in the CLVT search box.

We have a (brute) built-rite set up and has been good. Has run a lot of wood thru it!

Every since i built a log bucking table, i really fly through wood. Super split and built rite conveyor.  Break down large rounds with your current hydro splitter. In good wood the super split is incredible. 

To me, finding an easy way to buck logs into length was the problem. Table was the answer.

Not to hijack the OP but could you post a thread on your log bucking table or a link to it if you already have? Thanks!

Nothing fancy to be honest. Just 8x8 legs 2x6 framing. I made it 4x8. But wish it was bigger. I place the logs on it with a loader. Cut them to length, and roll them down a ramp or lift and pivot them onto the splitters table. The table holds half splits while you split the other half if its big wood. Theres a small aisle way between me and the splitter. Maybe a foot and a half two feet.

Just works great, no bending, no lifting,  just cutting and maneuvering. Simple, cheap, fast and effective.
