  1. I've bought the AMR with it's own PTO pump, the 35 handles it well. I have even tried billeting the logs, I don't know if it involves more work than blocking and splitting right away, any one able to comment?
  2. I can't say I ever experienced any problems with knotty blocks, the only problems I found was the block sometimes flipped if you didn't present it to the screw properly, otherwise a great splitter for a small tractor like a TEF.
  3. I don't want a petrol powered or power pack because I already have a power pack, the 35. I used to have a Hycrack but it's slower than a hydraulic, although very useful on an old Fergie. I've gone with the AMR, but will get a table built for it, I know they are now banned from being sold by manufacturers, but they are great for working at waist height. Thanks for all the replies.
  4. I've been told, whether true or not, that a small pertrol engine won't produce the speed of a tractor powered pump, although I stand to be corrected.
  5. I've just had a quote of £2,880 plus vodka and tonic, for the ARM, so not very cheap, but I do like the look of it. However, I may have to go down the "adding a pto pump to my splitter" route. Can the ARM be "converted" to one hand operation, not that I would ever consider doing it!
  6. I have a 15 ton splitter run off the tractors hydraulics which works very well. However, to free up the tractor, I would like to run a splitter off my MF 35, which hasn't the hydraulic capabilities of the bigger tractor, so what I want is a hydraulic 15 ton splitter run off the pto, preferrably with auto-return, but there doesn't seem to be much choice. Any recommendations? Or another thought, what would I need partswise to convert the current splitter to run off the pto?
  7. Where are you Tom, I am in NE Scotland so distance may be an issue.
  8. I'm looking for one of these saws, does anyone have one spare for sale?
  9. Would it not be easier to reverse into it, for visibility, with some sort of plate attached to the back of the beast?
  10. So do car sales sites, but they can do 10 photos and the price. Just saying..
  11. I've just had a look at their website. Something that annoys the hell out of me is why no prices? What is he trying to hide? It's not a state secret so put up the prices and save each other a lot of time emailing/calling each other. I won't deal with someone who won't display their prices. My pet hate! Rant over.
  12. Bit like the: "What weighs more, a ton (I only think in Imperial weights) of coal, or a ton of feathers?"
