    11/2 to 2 cord an hour with two guys maybe more.2002 model bought used for 3000.00. had the machine for a month, splits to fast for me to throw the wood, so time to get a conveyor.

    If you just let it fall out on the ground, won't the splitter push itself along?? I had a built-rite bundle wood splitter, and it would do that... You just have to keep in mind that it will make a long small pile, we'd chalk the wheels and let it "wag" back and forth to make the piles bigger...

    I feel your pain

    I have the Iron & Oak 4003. It will split so fast that it builds up undre your feet and you have no place to step. I am also looking for a conveyor. I keep watching for a used one but none have sold close enough to drive and get them.
