  1. My splitter weighs 110kg. In and out if the shed tilted back on the tiny wheels through gravel and up gradients etc was a real chore. Made me not want to go splitting. So I moved the origional wheels to the front and replaced the origional axel and wheels with a beefier version. Whole deal cost about €60 inc. bits and peices, grinding disjd, drill bits etc. Well worth it, I can pull and push it about with one hand now, zero effort.
  2. Evening, looking into buying a cheap kubota b1400 tractor from a local bloke, and although I am confident it will run my saw bench, will it have enough power and weight to be able to lift my thor supermajic 18t pto splitter? Looking for a small tractor which would be my own, and at the same time be handy for manoeuvring chipper etc on larger work sites, and this is local and within budget. thanks
  3. Bought a tractor mounted log splitter (don't know what make) and it didn't come with the right hoses to connect the valve up (Gresen 550) so I jerry rigged it into my loader valve block and it works fine, although a nuisance to have to walk round to the loader valves each time to split a log. Ordered the necessary hoses and adaptors which arrived yesterday but can't get it to work. I think the issue is that the valve is possibly for a single acting cylinder, despite having two outlet ports, because said ports are connected together internally (green arrow) so moving the lever in either direction causes fluid flow from both outlets (with no load on them, fluid flows out of them depending on valve position, i.e. lever up, top outlet, lever down, bottom outlet, lever neutral, no flow - you should see my barn floor!). Have I just been stiffed and given any old valve that he had lying around or is there a way to block this port? It's not threaded but I could tap a metal rod into it
  4. I have been collecting hard woods from tree surgery jobs for 3 years. I have seen adverts for electric splitters on-line from £200 to £600. They look pretty basic. Do they REALLY work and can anyone recommend one, because there are lots to choose from. I would be grateful for any advice. Jonathan
  5. Done firewood a few years ago, but since the arb side of the business got increasingly busy I didn't have time to do it. Sold the road tow Balfor 16 ton splitter. Now however I have a wood burner, and need a small scale splitter. A vertical jobbie looks ideal for my needs. Like the look of the thor aplino 6 ton electric. But is this over kill? Heard good things about the Handy vertical electric splitter it's half the price. But will I regret buying it? And wish that I had spent the extra money. Any help and advice gratefully received?
  6. hi. i know its not a pro splitter but from reading the forum over the last few weeks i have noticed there are a lot a different people and skills on here. there are a few threads on splitters but not much input on electric. I spilit arb waste that i can scavenge for free and try not to buy wood. I am a retired joiner on medical grounds,not an arborist but have cut wood with a few saws over the years. I have a good knowlage and love of timber and find this site very interesting. If anyone has the time to spare and the knowlage of the above machine or similar I would be very grateful. My budget is about £500. As i said , be kind to a newun.
  7. Hi all Looking for a splitter up to about £2k I've seen a few second hand verticals on a trailer where you split straight n the floor. Seems a bit odd bending over all the time and would be a strain on your back. Vertical with a table seems good but big rings may struggle to get them on the table as theyre heavy etc. I thn I fancy a woodline multipla 10t with a spare 4 way head. That way I can do any big rings in half or quarter on the floor then put it n horizontal mode and split down all the smaller stuff at a sensible working height. Anyone got any feedback n the multipla? How does it compare to the wl bull special etc at the same tonnage? Has anyone got the pto version? I was thinking of getting e Honda engine version but would the pto version be much quicker say on an old tractor like a major/ dexta? Look forward to some informed replies.... Also, any good alternatives?
  8. I have a yard in Dorchester on Thames. I need someone to split a reasonable amount of wood, probably take a couple of days, but there's a good chance I could offer you more work after this. You'll need to be... A company or Self employed Have NPTC tickets, risk assessments, etc Have you're own saw and PPE, etc Must be able to give me a quote and invoice for your work.
  9. Hi there I have been offered a log splitter by an acquaintance, and wanted to know how much it was worth before going ahead with the purchase. It is a Ramsplitter HV20, runs on a petrol engine, and is the towable version. The splitter is 3 years old, has not seen too much use as far as i'm aware. Dont know much about purchasing this sort of equipment second hand and didnt want to pay over the odds. What do you think would be a good price? Thank you so much for any opinions/advice in advance, just wanted to ask some people who would know. Thanks again
  10. Hi, This is my first post to this forum so a quick hello straight off. Secondly, we had a Binderberger H10 KOMBI model H00H10KB (http://www.binderberger.com/cms15/components/com_virtuemart/shop_image/product/H10_Kombi_486b53f11c1ce.jpg) stolen from our house in North Durham (near Lanchester) on 21st May, 2010. I have a vague recollection that it was originally supplied by Marshall Agricultural Engineering and had a sticker of theirs on the machine. The splitter was distinctive for the fact that the small jockey wheel at the back (ie not the two large wheels shown in the picture) had shattered which rendered the machine immovable without great difficulty. If anyone's seen anything like it, I'd be very interested to know. Thanks, David
