    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

    Nothing extravagant here, but hope it does what I need. Found this little used 27 ton Gravely at an estate that is being sold off. Looks like new and runs decent. I'll get some action pics in the next week or so. May be a bit longer as we are headed into a stretch of single digit temps over the upcoming weekend and early next week.

    First picture is our Huskee 35 ton purchased new in 2009/10 area. Still runs like a top and will start 1 pull most days. Spends it's life at best friend's (Lefty) place. @Wood Doctor uses it most of the time now.
    Second is our Country Line 25 ton gifted to me in 2016. Spent life in backyard for personal firewood, so not much use on it. Moved it out to Lefty's when Edwin moved his operation to Lefty's as well.
    Last picture is New Year's Day 2022. Lefty's barn burned down and took the splitter with it, death by fire, and that stinks big time. Not sure what will happen at this time, but leaning twards purchasing another, use it a year or two, and upgrade to something with adjustable 4-way and more features. Need to find money for that first.

    Give it some time. Knee-jerk decisions usually fail. This loss was indeed a tragedy. I will never forget CountyLine --fast, strong. and reliable. We still have big Huskee and it runs fine, so all is not lost.

    Unfortunate on the County Line splitter…know a few folks around here that have ‘em and they are solid, dependable splitters.

    A friend of mine who was certified nuclear built this splitter back in 1989. 5 x 24" cylinder. 2" rod, 28 gpm 2 speed barnes pump, 18 hp B&S IC motor, 40 gallon hyd tank. 2 way dent control handle, Auto return at end of stroke via fiberglass rod and throw line and pulleys(works great!). 10 gallon fuel tank. The extended tongue makes splitting behind the truck easy. We have a small Boxer skid steer that we use to lift the big stuff. Roll lots of big stuff up an aluminum ramp. The Boxer is good for retrieving rounds and lifting onto the splitter. We run the Briggs about 2,400 rpm and vary the rpm based on the number of 'volunteers'.

    Enough of bragging on my 33 year old splitter. Here's a few photos taken this afternoon:
