Hey,how about more pictures of your machine???
York, here is the thread with most of the build. https://www.arboristsite.com/community/threads/36-splitter-build.289670/
This pile is about 120 logs that were 13'2" then cut into 16" rounds. About 2 days splitting for me. I have since converted the conveyor to gas powered.
Thanks,for the link...
I used to install floor liners in the back of Dump trailers, and gravel hoppers and other machines that needed abrasion resistance.
I have one question do you know if you where actually getting UHMW when you ordered it, HMW looks the same and smells the same but defiantly doesn't hold up the same, I've seen people sell HMW liners, as UHMW for more profits.......... I do believe the only way to tell the difference I've been told is by putting it in a pail of water to figure out the density, I don't know how accurate that is though - That info came from a Mennonite
That also being said, I've been looking at the design of the pusher, and yes the bolt holds would move a bit and with heat the product will grow, if you put a sheet of 4'x8' on the ground it will grow a good 1/2" just with the heat of the sun, you almost have to put the pusher into the plastic like a shoe, and then hold hold it in place with the bolts, if you wanted to look at a design change sometime
Acetal Copolymer might be suitable for the application.
that stuff looks pretty cool. I'm not reading it's UV Stable though I think that would be about the only thing it's missing.
That seems really high. I pay $170 / cord for oak, ash and hickory.
I am Looking for a face cord of Osage Orange, Mulberry, Locust and/or Red Oak if anyone knows where I can get some in NW Ohio
Hi I met Andrew at the 2019 Bangor Maine show we bought a 22 28 with the six way wedge and bought a 8 way and a 12 way it's a awsome splitter two weeks later we bought a stk 24 conveyer the splitter puts out so much wood one man can't keep up with moving it out of the way conveyer needed
Have any videos?
Building a splitter to handle the input is the easy part. Getting enough help to handle the output is always tough.
I’m looking at the 9-16 for the home fire needs and sell off a few cord locally a year. It looks like good single handed machine. I’d just be the only owner on the west coast with one.
