Looks GREAT! It will serve you well!
It is loosely based off the timberwolf or built rite splitters, but i kinda just looked at the pictures and made it work with the parts that i wanted and were available. The splitting head is my design, kinda based on a timberwolf tw7 but heavily modified. The head is untested and may not work at all. We'll hav to see.
Here is the splitter I've been working on. Some specs:
5" boreX 30" stroke cylinder with 2.5" rod
22gpm 2 stage pump
Honda Gx 390 13hp (used)
on an old boat trailer chassis.
Hope to have it done in a couple weeks.
Next step is to take it in for sandblasting and powdercoat.
I ordered a 19.5 gal tank from northern tool. When i got it it was only 14.5 gal but i think itll work. There are many guys with 5 or 6 gallon tanks
It has a hydraulic log lift not pictured. More to come.
Finished her up a couple weeks ago- had to modify the splitting head and fix a couple leaks but it works really well now. We stalled the cylinder on a 26" piece of green Pecan, but it was also leaking at the time. I look forward to trying it again now. (pics don't show hydro hoses)

Probably be splitting shortly after Christmas. The bad news is, with this bad mofo- I might be done with my pile of wood in less than a day. Thanks for the kind comments.
