    Well I have a lot of time into it, most of the steel was out of the scrap pile at my shop. But just the Ram, pump, dump valve, auto valve, 2 spool valve, hoses-fittings, engine, at least $5,000.

    Haven’t used it yet but it looks like my days of wrestling logs over to the splitter (actually a “holder” for me) may soon be over:)

    It works! It’s a little close when I stand there to cut cookies , but it’s do-able. I can actually stretch it out a few inches to give me more room. 3775CE95-CA26-44AA-BBC1-F557831890C0.jpeg 285B2FF5-83D7-45DB-B144-71A566DCC5A2.jpeg

    I don't know if I've shown this or not before .At any rate it ain't pretty but it is powerful .Took me 20 years to amass the junk to built it and 4 days when I got with it until it was done .
    11HP Briggs electric start ,16 gallon per minute pump ,5" Parker Hannifan "super duty " cylinder .Tank /axle is 8" pipe .Beam is 70 plus pounds per foot piling beam .Tires and spindles Ford Escort .2" steel base plate /foot .Boat winch to lay it over horizontal and a cable system using the cylinder to stand it up .Pop licker is heavy must weigh a half a ton .It will split anything you can put in it .I only run it at about half throttle because there's only one of me, I never have any help .I suppose with the engine, pump, pump adaptor mount and control valve I have about $500 in it .I might have bought 10 pounds of 7024 welding rods .Some heavy welding and didn't want to fart around for week with 1/8"7018 to do it .At any rate the splitter is bullet proof even if it is ugly
