Yes, they're a good machine. Can run for 8 hours or so with 10 litres of petrol, typically i'll split 10-12 cubic metres of hardwood logs in a day working on my own though a lot depends on the wood, how well stacked it is etc.

Re: Farmi wp30 petrol processor

f you're looking at the one on ebay, it's a previous model to the one Billy68 has (not sure about robs but think his was a new generation one too).

The earlier ones were still quick and had the powered infeed and the option of the log lifter but the controls were more conventional (as in pull across the machine), it has loads more guarding and the elevator doesn't slew.

I'd still have one if I needed one.
