So, the mf14 pulls the logs down off the top of the pile, logs then go onto the saw bench, run by the ferguson, then the blocked wood goes to the spliter, run by the ferguson and held in place by lgt100, once split, a pile is made beside the spliter and the mf14 pushes the pile away.
And the MF is only just above idle. No reving up the engine required.

Sounds like you've got a system that works and enough older GT to do it.  Can't have too many GT's.

Nice set up and so fun to work with.  If you're going to do work like this, it's always better to add a fun factor in.  I do wish I had a pile of wood like that!

Great setup! 

 

Although I really appreciate my $.87/gal propane after seeing all that work. :beer:

Now all you need is a pallet building to put the split wood in to keep the rain and snow off it.  Pallets let the air flow through and help dry out any wood that is not dry yet.  I don't burn green wood.  Nice setup.  Going to go look at a couple trees this evening now that they mowed the CRP/weeds down.

Or you could build something like this.  This works great for me and it wasn't real expensive to build.

Great system. Is that a Dearborn or a Ferguson buzz saw?

I don't believe its either. Name starts with a B. Can't remember what it is. Befco, maybe. It's a great saw. Blade all covered up. I like that.
