    It will actually take a 9ft log and i built it for logs that are to large to run thru my firewood processor once the log is quartered then we run the quarters thru the processor this way all work is done with machines to handwork. I did the math and it comes out to around 80-90 tons of force been using it for 3yrs or so we build alot of equipment

    I once ran across a fellow that had a 16' stroke on his splitter. But it wasn't for firewood. He set it up to split fence rails for landscaping mass production, a'la "split rail fencing". Worked slick, but had a very thin shear for a splitting edge. Wish i had a camera then.

    Snowlord, that's awesome. We don't do enough firewood for a processor, but we also cut it ourselves and sell and deliver directly to the end user.

    We have had trouble getting logs but have a good supplier now but over the years it has gotten tougher every year cant believe what Im paying for logs compared to 5yrs ago but what do you do gotta keep things moving. Bye the way Im putting the other 2 wedges on my big splitter tommorrow so I can quarter the long logs in one pass. I will try to get some pics

    We get about 25% of our logs from our own cutting. No money in saw logs, so everything now goes for firewood. We also have a couple of tree services that make up the rest. It's feast or famine with these guys, but thats OK, all that costs me is a couple cases of beer! This was a slow winter, like everyone, but the supply is good for now. I do have a couple of sources if I need, but that costs. So for right now we'll stay small and see what happens. Can't wait for the pics!
