Definitely go with the stand alone splitter, that way you are not wearing out a tractor and the tractor is available to use. Wood splitting for me is home use not commercial.  My first splitter is/was a 37 ton gas powered and a great splitter nothing has stopped it yet. Splitting mainly Doug fir and some oak. I had it at a friends house for 3-4 years and about 1 1/2 yrs ago we were at Costco and they had 27 ton gas powered splitters priced at $799 so we bought it for our other property, cut large juniper and a little pine, works good but little use. Got the 37 ton home now. My 37 ton will lay horizontal or tip up vertical and with the larger fir butt cuts I generally use it in the vertical position. would rather do some rolling and bending than lifting.
