Bolting a log spitter on a st8

Recommended Posts

In theory yes you could !
But seriously it’s not designed to do that and it would void any warranty you have!

Your hydraulic system in your chipper is closed circuit if you start splitting joins apart or fitting QR fittings then you run the risk of getting contamination in the hydraulics and then your be buying a new pump, oil and filter!

Which would be the biggest part of buying a chipper with its own engine and pump and if you sell your current splitter your be even nearer!

Great thanks it was just a idea id been roling around tbh but was not sure if a good one as don't know about pump pressures ECT and your completely right about oil contaminating/warranty mate did not think about that I'll just go with plan A (little wood possessor)
