    Log Drying Kiln

    A few years ago I made my own kiln in a refrigerated lorry body. It was fibreglass and I stuck a 28 kw workshop stove in there. Burned sawdust or wood. It wasn't the best installation but it did work. I cut the roof lights out so it could vent and small house fans blowing under the bulk bins . I bought a diesel space heater later on with a thermostat so it cut in at 50 °c. This worked well but I will change it around next time , mainly for logistics. Feeding the stove was a pain so was loading , had no forklift but the idea worked. Ideally two stoves outside in their own insulated room blowing hot air into the kiln.

    Any big splitters for sale ?

    Pretty much. I know the work related injuries/pains that I have and I know that you have worse! And you're an old fart

    Looking at upgrading to a large pto driven horizontal splitter. Has anyone got one ? 30 to 45 tonne Regards
  5. Cheers. I may splash out on a bigger tractor and a 30/40 tonne machine.
  6. Looks like 30 tonne max on my current tractor then.
  7. Thank you for that
  8. My tractor is only 38 HP at the shaft . Do I need more power to run a big splitter ? 200 litres a min I think the Balfor is.

    Anyone deliver to Wroxham , Norwich?

    Thank you lads.
  12. There are an old couple in Wroxham who need an honest fire wood supplier. Their daughter lives near me and is worried about them. She thinks they are being ripped off and their open fire is their means of heating. I will go if no one else can ,but it's a long way for me.

    I have a Thor Mignon 11 tonne and there isn't much that stops it. I would think you will be fine.
