    Modification box brand 27 ton splitter

    I have a typical box store 27 ton splitter. The cub cadet verison to be specific. Its a heavy duty well built splitter but I'm wondering if its possible to add an 8 or 10 way wedge. My neighbor has a fab shop and I'm going to have him do it. What size motor would be needed and what size pump? Do...

    Husky 445 Bogs down

    I bought the chain from a dealer who put it on. He said it could be a cracked fuel line or the jet needs to be opened up not getting enough fuel or the carb needs work.

    Husky 445 Bogs down

    445 x torx Saw is a probably 5 years old. I cut a few cord last week with a crappy chain and saw seemed to run fine. Bought a new chain today and now the saw doesn't have the power and bogs down bc the chain is actually cutting good now. If I only use the tip of the bar it will rev good but as...

    Dump Trailers

    You'll be able to find a used 6x10 in texas and your stuff doesn't rust down there. Put 3' sides and you can fit a cord on it. That would be the lightest setup for your f150 which would be a good match. You can find a used one for 3 grand no problem and back that anywhere you need to go. I...

    Large Tree Transplanting

    New house with no shade in upstate NY. I'd like to plant a few Soft Maples. I have a bobcat and could borrow my friends 10klb Mini Ex. How big of a tree can I realistically transplant that will survive. I can pick trees on my land with enough room for a mini and bobcat. Digging around the tree...

    ASH Bin/ Bucket

    I use coal to heat my house, and will fill a small 10 gallon ash bin almost daily. I have small bobcat with forks....and would empty the small ash pan in the large apple size bin......and then empty at the end of the year. The problem is the large bin can't really dump, and if I tip it over it...

    What dump truck should i use

    reply I'm leaning towards the isuzu smaller compact trucks. I think it would get better mileage than a larger medium duty truck. I can stay under cdl limit of 26k. I'm only hauling around 8,000lbs of wood (slabwood-little lighter than normal wood-). If i have to get a CDL B i will, not a big...

    I currently use my duramax truck and 16' gooseneck dump trailer. I've always thought about getting a small "dump truck"/ landscape dump truck to use for my firewood operation. Here are the details. I need at least 500 sq ft of dump box. Prefer 550 sq ft. Rigth now i'm at 16x6.9x 4.5-5 ft. I...

    Loading cut split firewood slabwood with bucket?

    reply Alot of the saw mills have a chipper and don't do slabwood. These are Amish so thats really the only exception. I see tractor trailers lined up at the mills for the chips. I'm selling to the low end firewood buyers(craigslist) at a lower price as well. I was surprised by the amount of...

    Loading cut split firewood slabwood with bucket?

    reply STLfirewood, i like your idea, and thats what i'm leaning towards, although i found a dump trailer that i'd like to use instead. What is the size of the dump boxes on the grain trucks? Also, how much does an old grain truck go for? I can get a dump trailer like the picture shown for...

    Loading cut split firewood slabwood with bucket?

    I have tried this. If i place the bucket slightly above the ground and then go into the pile, my tires just spin(its like i'm going into a brick wall). I'll try it again and some other things too see if i can make it work. Not sure what else to try

    Loading cut split firewood slabwood with bucket?

    reply Well i have a rock grapple bucket all made up. I have $2500 into it, and its not working too well. I have this 66" rock bucket, and then had a single center mounted ram grapple welded on. My biggest problem is the w I'm loading slabwood, which tends to be a little smaller than...

    Loading cut split firewood slabwood with bucket?

    grapple I bought a 66" Rock bucket. Now i need to make the grapple part. A local guy has a 4.5 ft york rake he would sell me for $250. Could this be made into a grapple and would it work good? If, not what are my other options for my grapple. Purpose is to load cut/split firewood. -Where...
