Here is the woodsplitter I built a few weeks ago. I recently acquired 20 cord of wood in mankiller size blocks, perfect time to build the splitter I have been dreaming about. This unit uses a 5” ram with a 30” stroke and will split a 32” block. I left 2” between the pushblock and wedge to leave room for a 4-way wedge I may add latter. Key features are the expanded metal on top of the I-beem for traction, ball hitch on the front to move other splitters or trailers on site, can be manually rotated 180 degrees, mounted to a 3” shaft so the quick-tach can be removed and used for other future attachments. Wedge is made of 1“ mild steel with a mill beveled edge. If you look closely you will also see that it is set at a 5 degree angle towards the skid. If you were ever thinking about building or buying one of these I would say go for it. This attachment exceeds all of my expectations.
