new toy! Thor magik petrol 13t

Recommended Posts

Did you get the 4-way head? I find it great for smaller diameter timber up to about 14inch (which is about 90% of my production)plit in half on the tip of the blade.

Its certainly a lot quicker than the balfor a11 i had before which is why i wanted it as the a11 would not keep 2 people busy, 1 would always end up stood round waiting for the splitter to catch up. I find the foot pedal a waste of time, i took it off, it soon gets buried in log debris which stops it working anyway.
Its not as easy to transport the thing around, a very small base and fairly top heavy make it awkward to secure. i am getting some slots made up so i can pick it up with the pallet forks on a loader.


I've taken the plunge and got an ex demo model coming from M Large.

I'll have a look when it arrives to see if some mounts for the Avant can be fitted to it to move it around.

Ex. demos are usually a good deal.

 

What is the cycle time on 10" rings?

Anyone know how to make it one hand operated? I think the design has changed a bit.

Was that cheaper than buying one to run off the avant?

My Avant is old and tired! I'd rather have a stand alone one and use the Avant to move it around and the ibc cages once full up.

i am going for some bits of rectangular section steel fixed to the mount for the wheels to fit the pallet forks on the loader, with clamps so i can clamp it on to the pallet forks. the engine is in the way for a loader bracket to fit and oil is stored in the upright steel section so i wouldn't fancy welding to that. I did think about going underneath the baseplate and enlarging that a bit also. The hydraulically (Avant) driven version is a great idea but i use the loader for bringing wood to the splitter, keeping rings in the bucket to avoid too much bending down. or for drying split stuff to where the customer wants it.

(presume that's 10'' high rings not diameter) About 5 seconds on a pto version of the magik 13. That's picking the log up from table at waist height, splitting and next log in hand again.

I have a video somewhere.
