Cool setup, though!

That is a pretty neat wood splitter. I wonder how much that would cost to make as compared to buying a comparable one?

Seeing as it is fairly common to convert a LT or GT it must be cheaper in one way or another.

 

I may never do this but i know were i can get wood splitters missing engines for very cheap and LT or GT for good prices.
