Home made Firewood Processor
« on: October 10, 2008, 05:03:05 PM »
I went to a farm equipment auction  last week and came across this home made firewood processor.  I think it sold for about $650.   It looks pretty slick.

Log comes in from left side, gets cut and drops down.  The entire underside then moves to push the cutoff piece into the 4 way wedge splitter (off to right).  The channel piece on the left side with the flat piece welded to it holds the log while cutting.




Another view of the log input side.  Note the hydraulic cylinder underneath that "pulls" the log holding clamp.




This view shows the section under the cut-off table that moves.  The end with the weld beads on it pushes the piece into the 4 way splitter.



Back side  view.




Anothe angle of the splitter.


Been there, done that.   Never got caught [/b]

I've added captions to the pictures above explaining the way "I think" it works.
