  2. Auto Return Splitter

    Well im running off a 82hp Tractor with good pressure and flow rate,so the splitter is flying up and down but a bit low on strenth with the harder stuff,i was just thinking the return valve would maybe make it a bit better as i could set it for the lengh of logs to be split and speed things up a bit,must be somthing out there?
  3. Auto Return Splitter

    Yes i guess its poss, but do think i could do with a bit more Grunt as well,it will not go through any knotty stuff,and yes a few people have asked have i welded a splitting maul head on the Oxdale does look a starnge head.
  4. Auto Return Splitter

    Yes Sorry got that the wrong way round....6x 0.6 bags an hour thats about 3m3...And thats the best we have ever done, more like 2m3 and hour
  5. Auto Return Splitter

    Well there some big old lumps, whole trunks take to much time getting them on there,and would have to be some Processor, chainsaw and split i would have thought.
  6. Auto Return Splitter

  9. Log Load Prices??

    Well they will have to go up then! I find this pricing hard work, quiet a few times over the years have driven past customers and seen a small wet load on there drives,the kind of stuff thats been layed on the wood floor for years and is soaked through,i know the guy round here that delivers that rubbish and he charges £90.Ours is only £70 for 1.2m3 and has been barn dried all summer uniformed Beech/Ash and is 1/2 as much again in volume than his....Crazy this is why im thinking this through, how they can take our cusomers selling that sh*t Bewilders me
