Just trying to get some new conversation going... This is a guy about ten miles from me. He uses the Petteybone and a fork mounted dumpster style hopper to split into and then dumps on the pile, which last fall was easily ten foot higher. Homemade splitter with very large table he dumps rounds on with the other machine. The splitter is between the two machines in the shade. Simple efficient set up for big wood with some older equipment. I tried piling with a conveyor, but not enough sun and wind, and I got nasty moldy wood.
