Not horse logging - but horse splitting

Recommended Posts

Is this right! Following on from my latest thread in the firewood area (jaws of life vid), another wacky log splitter/log splitter setup. Can't remember the name for the type of splitter used here, but it's one of those yank machines that runs on a rack and pinion setup.

Could stand corrected here but i don't think the horse was providing the POWER . Seemed to me he was just using it to excercise the horse as a bonus.

Rickety machine and i dont think the horse was enjoying it either.

clearly looks to me the horse is providing the power for it.......... not sure i agree with the comment at the bottom of the video on the youtube page about hydraulic splitters not being quicker????

Either petrol driven , battery i dont really know for sure.

After watching the video a few times the speed of the tracks is VERY constant , too constant especially when the suffolk looses its footing a little yet the tracks trundle on.

The Amish use machinery as you know only its horse drawn. :thumbup1:

I think we should buy one,all of us together at Arbtalk.When we catch someone stealing our Firewood,onto the Treadmill they go.

 

It could have a Brake Band on it,you could increase the resistance of the Tracks depending upon the seriousness of the Theft.

Good plan Mr Hill, but it'll need a different splitter. It'll need one of those huge wheel things, widowmaker style. Then they'll need to slave in teams, one providing the power, the other one splitting wood, blindfolded!

They can swap after 3 cube, and after they've finished their 6cube shift they can go home.
