Interesting....that box wedge setup. Never seen it before. We run a Timberwolf TW5 with a 4 way.
Its one splitting mofo for sure.

I just added a box wedge to my splitter, and I like it except for the waste. 13hp, 4000 lb pump with a 5” ram. The math says it’s 39.270 ton. In 30 seconds I can convert it to split like a regular splitter for the weird wood if need be. Put a crane type mast I guess you’d call it on it years ago with a hand winch for my back. Looking for a ATV 12 vote winch with remote now. For an ugly somebitch it does good.

09, you mentioned splitting kindling, wouldn't one of those splitting cones you attach to a hand drill be perfect- fast and light duty

A big one would be cool, I hear only good things about them.

But on a pop up ad I saw a small one for a drill, it went thru small logs making kindling with speed and no effort.

I referred to it as Frankinsplitter and my son said that was an insult to Frankenstein, he said it’s more like Jeepers Creepers splitter. :(

Well, it looks like it gets the job done.
Some nice, even size pieces of firewood in those stacks.

Word is, some logs have split themselves when they see what they were being loaded onto :boogie:

I like the corrugated roof on the piles, simple, effective, looks decent too

Fo sho!

Did you have it lying around or did you gather it up somehow. Not much corrugated anywhere around here:/:;)

When I was looking to buy a splitter, I found strange that the ratting force/hp of the chinese ones were higher on average than those from the west wold. Some magic tech ?
No, to calculate the force, it seems that they simply use the outside diameter of the cylinder ! A good bunch of pounds easily won for the marketing.

Prolly none “laying around” there either! Got to get it off the neighbor’s sheds when they’re not looking. A sheet here, a sheet there…and flip it over so they don’t recognize it as their missing panels!

Chinese horses are smaller than American horses. You can get more of them in the box!
