    That's pretty neat.

    Wish they made a 12 VDC model. All the ones I have seen are 120 VAC. That and a decent 12 VDC chainsaw.

    Wow!! I think what you have done with your splitter is pretty nifty. I would like to learn more about how you did it, because I also have a five ton electric log splitter; and would like to know how to convert it. Again, thanks for the video.

    My old Lickety Log Splitter is semi-auto. It's a EK308 model powered by a 8HP Kohler engine.
