This is what I was looking for thanks much. Once they are blocked up my 16 year old and I will try out my slightly used but new to me TW5 with the log lift. I am trying to work smarter not harder and I love splitting wood.

Thanks again.

As compared to cutting them on the ground? I agree the set up may take some time, but sometimes there are other considerations (like making it convenient for someone with a messed up back).

Buddy of mine does it kinda like you. He has a kubota 60 horse and a 3pt log skidder winch on it. Hooks up to about 4 or 5 respectable logs. Drags them to a pile and uses his mini to stack them up in a pile, does this for a while until the pile/piles get huge. He used to use a 3pt splitter with a lift and table and he has a conveyor, but recently he is renting a processing unit for a week. It should put out a respectable amount of wood for the week its rented if its fed non stop, and the machines do all the work.. No handling the wood 20 times, just skid it, pile it and process it until its dry or ready to sell.
