Picked this splitter up for $100. Started first pull and runs well. Just a little too low for me and most of what I split isn't too large to lift. Put less than another $100 into it in steel, paint, and a trailer jack for the front. Only other thing I'd like to do is replace the hydro tank with a larger one to help keep the oil cool.

Nice Panther splitter, I had one that split hundereds of cords of wood, went through original engine and a rebuild and was then replaced with a new engine that still runs today. That  thing will split anything with the 5hp Briggs on it. We split slabs of oak that took 4 men to get on the splitter. They make splitting wood easy but it'll wear you out in a hurry.

Congrats on the splitter. You got a great deal and the new height looks a lot easier on the back.

Looks like the splitter me a a buddy built back in the late 70's.

If you go to the trouble of getting a larger tank, you might want to add an oil filter between the tank & Pump.

I would think the filter would go on the return side?

Nice, the only thing I thought looking at the first pic was "my sore back" great idea raising it up. I like my splitter bed at 36". Much less bending.

I'm looking to build a log lift one of these days. The only draw back to having it so high is lifting the big logs up.

I stand corrected.......Better record this statement....It doesn't happen often!
