Only slightly. That is a typical skid steer splitter that works 'upside down', correct? Not sure how that relates to this splitter. What am I missing?
[EDIT]
Oh wait, I see, you are saying this was built from one of the skid steer splitters and now that I look at it, I believe you could be right! I thought you were referring to the question of how does it work. The 'builder' was probably trying to find a way to free up his skid steer and improve throughput.

OK, maybe I am the woodcutter now.
I can work with wood, but I am NOT a Woodworker, yet.

I will take some more pictures later today. I got the hydraulic pump off and scrounged a PTO adapter so I am going to replace some hoses and the main splitter valve. Then try and run it off the tractor PTO. The push block is shaped like a key hole and should travel the length with out hitting the v-block log support. I have lots of interest but not serious interest. So for now I will just keep working on it and see if I can get it running. The engine appears to be seized up tight but PB blaster and worked on loosening pump bolts and hydraulic valves and lug nuts. I will pull the spark plugs and try blaster in there ? Replacing the wheels and tires is next so I can bring it up near the house to work on instead of the field.

If I could get somewhere around $900 for this thing I would break even. Its so heavy I cant get the axles off the ground so I can replace the tires. It would need to be winched onto a flat bed but the field is flat and dry so easy to get to. Motor is seized. If no one local is interested I will just keep putzing around with it.  I hope removing the seized engine will make it light enough to jack up. 

Thanks all.
