local firewood delivery service $200 a cord, delivered, and stacked,

You have one heck of a deal. :o :o
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

I like my Dayna a lot, I looked at the 12 when i was at the factory and they looked kind of small, I did see a log loading setup so you did not need a loader. When I ordered mine I got the feed trough 10 ft longer so i could handle longer logs, I have had 40 ft logs on it, I also looked at the Dyna 16 but decided on the 14 for price. I had a problem with a valve when I first got it and called them .they sent a new valve i had it the next day before noon. there ph no is on the decals on the machine.

Not ALL those logs are going to the processor  ;) the seriously oversized (18"+) or misfit logs are kicked to the side.

I've got a dyna sc14, and with the exception of really gnarly "S"-shaped logs that curve two different directions I can't complain one bit, it handles ugly logs pretty well.  The really curvy stuff either gets bridged up on the log deck or just chatters around in the feed trough, not worth the time to fool with.  My frame is extended too, not 10' though, I think I got 6' extra - most of the logs I get are are 12'-18' long, and I try to keep them in the 6"-18" diameter range.  I take all the stuff that isn't processor material and set it aside and buck it up and then my teenage son splits and stacks it and he sells that wood himself.  Works good for both of us that way.  I get rid of the hard to handle stuff that comes along with the good logs, and he gets a good supply of wood to sell.

I have an older brute/built rite processor also with a similar design, it did ok on wood like that too, just a little slower.  I'm going to advertise it for sale here shortly in the classifieds section on FF (I have read and I acknowledge the terms of doing so) now that I have the dyna up and running good.

Good luck with whatever machine you pick, definitely worth the time to study on for a while, it's a big investment even for the smaller ones.

This is great info guys I'm enjoying every ones thoughts and opinions on it. I to thought about the dyna sc12 seems like they make a good solid machine. I might even consider a used machine if the price was right.

So after talking with a fellow dyna sc12xp owner I think the dyna is the better choice for me. We talked a lot about the machine and I'm quite impressed with what he has told me. Plus if it's going to be run by my dad or my wife it is the way to go because neither one of them will be able to start my big 660 saw. The dyna is a little more money but I feel it is a good machine and a good company to deal with.

Good luck, hope you get something that works well for you.  I know mine has exceeded my expectations so far.

I have noticed on my multitek that if the chainsaw blade starts to dull, the logs do not go correctly into the splitter channel
the saw blades need to be sharp, to cut thru any remaining wood cleanly on the downstroke of the hydraulic saw.
any little bit of tree still connected will cause the cut piece to roll as it falls and need to be repositioned to split.
with this machine, it is a joy to run and can do quite a bit of wood per hour if everything is sharp. with a dulling blade it becomes a hassle to run , as almost 50% of the wood has to be repositioned before splitting

so keep everything sharp and well maintained no matter what processor you get

Kind of curious what Dyna is a actually asking for the 12 and 14 models if anybody knows a rock solid answer? I have tried calling the company and getting any info from them yet, trying to formulate a questionnaire in essence of everything I want to know before I call and waste their time.

Does anybody know what kind of production rate the wallenstien has? 1/2 to 1 cord per hour? I'm in the process of building one which is similar in concept but unsure if it will be fast enough to overcome My ADHD

They claim one cord an hour, but I'm not sure if that's man hrs or machine hrs.

Does anyone have experience or a review on the newest wallenstein wp 1624? I have only seen the videos from the manufacturer.
