This is probably a dumb question, but I'm wondering why splitter attachments for skid steers seem to cost much more than stand-alone splitters?
I thought the idea with the attachment was you don't need to buy the engine and hydraulic pump parts since they're already in the loader.

Anything skid steer mounted is expensive. Have often wondered why on the splitters too. It's likely an economies of scale thing related to manufacturing. They certainly aren't popular so that's likely why the cost is high.
