Just wanted to give an update on my processor build. Ran a bunch of logs through it this weekend and I can honestly say it will do an honest 2 cords an hour and definitely more with another guy loading it. Slows it down alittle when I have to load logs myself with the skid steer but nonetheless it’s still super awesome to only handle the wood with my hands once after it’s already split. The machine will successfully cut and split a 22 inch diameter log. I ended up spending about 9500 on the project and while that seems like a lot the time savings and wear and tear on the body will let me enjoy burning wood for decades to come. Thanks to all those on this site that answered questions I had. Might be the coolest thing I have ever built! Going to get some videos later this week posted up on YouTube.
