Im going to build a real "poor mans" firewood processor.
Ive got : 10 1/2 ton log splitter
: Husqvarna 18inch chain saw
: 12 volt 3000 pound winch
: old pop up camper frame to use a trailer and foundation for the machine
: mid 40's willys jeep frame to use as a wood table and work area
Im going to mount the saw on a pivot to allow the cutting of the logs into blocks. The pivot assembly will allow the saw to be removed and used normally. Blocks will roll down onto the splitter beam to be split and pushed off the machine to be stacked or piled. I need to figure out a way to run a 12 volt alternator to charge a battery to run the winch off of. Would like to do it without installing another engine.
Any ideas on how to run a alternator?
Any ideas on design?
I will try to remember to take pics.
Should I start a build thread?
