I like the idea of the jacks. My Supersplit kinetic sits up at waist level. Great working height but terribly top heavy and unstable to tow around even at very low speeds.

I built it using a truck 12 volt gear reduced tarp motor.  runs independent on a 12 v batt.  I charge it off the engine on the splitter, but could use the fleet wires on my truck.  front and back, have jumper cables and a winch the fits in the receiver front and back.  I think I did a conveyor thread,  I will try to link it here.
