Now you need big trees! Not many of those around these parts!

23k? Not that it isn't a nice unit, but it would take a lot of firewood to make it worth that. You'd still need a smaller one for the little stuff, and who burns 6' long stuff? Maybe a big outdoor furnace? Not my Mom, that's for sure.

There is a splitter that shows up at the Ashville,NC show that has 12" or so cylinder powered by a small block Chevy.

Big splitter and big damage if it ever breaks while splitting a 6" diameter tree!  Who knows, it may be of use to a harvester who handles trees that large.

My only thought on something like this would be if a large dia. tree  was split it would be easier to cut into stove size lengths ?  IDK  anyone else has ideas on it's uses ?

If you buy it, you will need a high-lift to load the logs onto it!!

Basically, I see it as a way to split large logs into some more manageable.

But how big is the machine to lift the logs onto it? Couldn't you cut them to shorter lengths then use a standard splitter? How about what happens when you hit a knot or grain turn and the piece snaps off the splitter? I don't want to be anywhere near that projectile!
