    Does anyone have any experience with one of these machines? I talked to the guy and he was very responsive and helpful. They design seems to be way better than all other 'buy-able' splitters.

    Doesn't look cheap. I want to see that 12 way wedge in action. I wonder what tonnage it is running to push through that wedge.

    The three models on their website use a 4" cylinder, so assuming 3000 psi, ~19 tons.. They have videos of a 6 way, but not the 12 way. Since it's not painted in that picture, it may be a custom job.

    Is there a video of that thing working? I don't even see it on their website. Must be a new model.

    The 12 way wedge is only suggested for the 38-40 splitter (not on the site yet).

    The wedges are all offset so the splitter isn't making all of the splits at once. Smart idea.

    I absolutely love his designs. The cradle is the perfect height, it doesn't allow rounds to roll. The lift is bigger than a Timberwolf. The stabilizing leg is absolute genius!

    The 5-11 now has a gx200 instead of the gx160.

    I was referring to the 12 way in action, I watched all the videos I could on youtube the other day and not one of it in operation. Definitely looks to be a well built unit though.

    His father owns Bells Machining the people that mack Bell processors. He (Andrew) used to do all the electric and hydraulic work there. He now builds splitters. He said he has 120 units out.
