Ive seen the ones that go on skid steers, but wondering if there is a stand alone unit out there that works similar? Something you could roll over or swing down over a big round and split it in place. yes I know they make vertical splitters, but that means you need to flop a big round over and wiggle it in place. Well, thats nice but with rounds in the 250 to 400 lb class, that aint happening. So you are bucking this big log on the ground, every cut, you have a big round still on edge there. You can start at one end, roll one out a little for clearance, get it busted into at least manageable chunks, then roll the next one out, and so on. Similar to what you would do noodling, but perhaps faster/easier better. Somehow there would need to be an easy height adjust... Any thoughts or has anyone seen one? Second question, anyone convert one of those smaller lightweight/cheap electric splitters into small gas engine powered? the whole things dont weight much, take off the electric motor and make the power source remote along with the hydraulic tank, and just have the bean/wedge/pussher plate and cylinder with some like handles to maneuever it over the round? This sort of follows on the above question, if the engine could be remote, with some longer hydraulic hoses, those things should be be light enough (they are only 4 to 10 tons I guess) to manhandle over big rounds and start shaving away at them. Set it up so it was just in slow and strong mode permanetly, to keep it simpler.
