 Firewood proccesor

I'm looking to build a firewood proccesor. Has anyone done this? Or have one that you could share pros and cons about? Pictures showing details of construction would probably be the most helpful, but any info would be great; I'm you would be so kind. Thanks.

Do you mean a log splitter?

Here's one that I thought was a good idea, but Patu stopped production. See link below and click on Wood splitting Machine.

Well, not just a splitter, but a machine that you drop a log(s) on bunks at one end and comes out the other cut to length and split. The operator controls the operation from one control station.

I've been working on exactly such a beast for over a year now.

There's more to it than you would first think, but then I am using a non-conventional method, i.e. no saw to reduce the wood into pieces.

Best of luck.

Buy a log splitter and get the work out. A wood processor is just not worth the HUGE cost unless you sell LARGE volumes of firewood. I mean along the lines of 100 cords or more per year.

Firewood processors are extremely expensive for what you get--I looked at an entry-level, bare-bones one for about $15K. Takes a lotta wood to make up the cost! Find some big, strong high school kids and tell them they should PAY YOU for getting a work out! If you put it that way to 'em, getting paid for the work is like getting paid to go the gym!

BTW, including buying a new engine & pump and using a bare minimum of 'recycled' (used) parts I already have in inventory, I figure mine will cost about $2k. plus a bunch of hours cutting, welding and designing.

Best of luck.
