Here is an intresting splitter using an Ariens, also a picture of a lightening strick fire above my house. It's being monitored. It's been burning for a couple of days but has grown today. The smoke was thick earlyier today from all the fires around and in Idaho, but cleared some tonight. http://missoula.crai...3266925498.html

You sure have a awesome scenery. Hopefully the fire doesn't spread far. That log splitter is very unique. Just chop off the back of a tractor and hook up the pump and your good to go. :D

I love the view, but I'm not keen on a fuel tank mounted above the hydraulic reservoir. Could the heat boil, or vaporize, the fuel, thus leading to reduced "mileage"? If not, you'd get a killer run-time out of that tank! I'm also torn between the death of a beautiful machine & my love of re-purposing dead items. Final judgment: one & a half thumbs up. (Two for the view!)

Cool splitter. But the scenery is better. Hope they get that fire out soon, There's enough of them going on.

I found it interesting that someone took the time to cut the frame to mount it that way. I most likely would have pulled the motor and mounted it by itself. This way he still has all the wiring harness together and the hood for the weather.

Are they going to wait for it to grow out of control to decide to put it out???

I think they may do something now. It made a big run up the ridge last night around 10:30. It's so smokey this morning can't see too much. I'll get a new picture later today if it clears and post it to a differnt topic.
