That would be my concern.  Can sell logs that size Tom?

As a stove retailer many are to fat.   Think that for optimum flame patterns in a 5kw stove ( so a 12" square firebox approx) you need to be able to load 2 or 3 at a time.  


None the less for a large volume of oversize stuff its a pretty decent bit of kit,  just put of the oversize logs log into the processor split chamber.   I would be looking at some sort on handling gear for the processed stuff,  ideally with a filter to take out the tiny shavings etc.

Tom, I just changed my Posch splitmaster 30 for a used JBM 60 tonne splitter, just like the one in this vid,



Obviously its not as powerful as the 80 tonner your thinking of getting and can't really be crane loaded, but having used it for a few hours now I think I can answer a few of your questions.


Large rings do sometimes require more than the 60t force and the ram stops, what I do is bring the ram back and put a smaller diameter log between the stuck ring and the ram. This concentrates the force on a smaller portion of the log and this part of the log moves through the splitter, once the ram hits the rest of the log generally also splits. Using this method I've not really had any issues with logs being stuck.


I'm very pleased with so far, the actual splitting feels slow, but after not very long I find I've produced a huge amount of logs.
