    Can anyone give me a guess on what a slightly used tw5 splitter with the log lift and log pan be worth? Found a 3 or 4 year old one in real nice condition. Guy said make him an offer. Don't want to insult him and would like to offer him a fair price. What do the new ones cost? Thanks for the help.

    I think you're going to be in the neighborhood of $5,500-6,000 if you want a relatively new one in decent condition with the options.

    I just got my TW-6 for 5 grand. No log lift though. About 8 years old.

    I paid $6200 for a TW-5 with log lift and table grate. It was less than a year old and had been used lightly. New with log lift and grate is about $7800 I believe.

    I agree with the "around 6k price" I think mine was around $7500 with the log lift, 6 way, and grate.

    You gonna need a conveyor after you find mass wood in your way all the time

    About $7500 for that too[​IMG]

    I think we have about 5 years on it now and nothing bad to say and no repair expense whatsoever

    Thanks, that's my employee. The log lift will pick up around 600 lb. I think which is a bigger honker than that but you may want to wear some steel toes

    Thanks for all the replies. This one is out of my league. Sure looks like a nice splitter though. Didn't realize they cost this much new or used for that matter. I don't split nearly enough wood to make something like this pay. Sure would be nice though. Maybe I'll have to buy a lottery ticket:clap:

    If you develop the customer base you can easily pay for it in a year or two. It can likely be financed too. Good luck whatever you do.

    Check the serial number of any used timberwolf

    Timberwolf has a great customer service department, if you registar the machine and it ever gets stolen they will flag it and notify authorities. they are great machines but they do need maintenance and they change the models from time to time so the only way to get parts is to go by serial number. just make sure you get the serial number and call timberwolf before you send a check.
