A few days ago, my brother told me that somebody he knew had a wood splitter that he was selling for $150, and that he might buy it so we don't have to borrow Neighbor Dave's splitter all the time. My brother, had a bike that he was selling for $250, and the guy wanted it. So, my brother traded the bike, for the splitter and $100! The splitter was dropped off yesterday, here it is.
As you can probably tell, it was completely homemade. Right now, it has a Wisconsin engine on it, but I do not remember the model. The engine was taken apart for some reason or another, cleaned, painted, and then never put completely back together. As far as I know, I have all of the engine parts; however, I am missing the alternator, and a bunch of other electrical stuff. The guy that built it is the one who took it all apart, then gave it to the guy my brother bought it from. I was told that the builder of it still has any missing parts... but does not know where they are.
My plan for this, is to take the engine off, and get rid of everything except the frame and hydraulic system. To power the unit, I will make a bracket that can mount to any PK with the hydraulic pump on it and drive off of that engine instead. Opinions on that? I think it will be much easier to do it that way, although I know that some of you Wisconsin guys will tell me to try to get that going instead.
