Dont know the price but I am guessing £25K plus?
I think you would still need an on site operator, simply to keep it loaded with poles. But at least you could do other things at your yard nearby e.g. maintenance, whilst it is chopping and splitting.
Why would a machine like that use a chainsaw/harvester bar rather than a circular blade? Timings? Jams?

Re: Fuelwood factory
if you could get yourself a petrol station contract or B+Q, then it would be perfect, just order a big load of pulp and away you go. i dont know why more dont burn softwoods here, seasoned sitka is amazing stuff, even conifer burns a treat when dry. i have a about 20 bags dumpy bags worth of cedar set aside for a guy with a huge log burner, it ismazing stuff an dso easy to split and handle..
