    Default Kwickjaw Log splitter

    Anyone seen this before? Was wondering if something like it might work on my Woods 6500 backhoe? Might want to set it up for only a single split not a double, like in the video.... Seems pretty simple to set up..


    Thoughts?

    Sure looks like it would be nice for the big heavy pieces. Not sure how economical it would be to run a backhoe for splitting smaller pieces though.

    I suppose if you lived somewhere where that big of firewood tree is normal, it'd be worth having.

    If you want one, looks like you're gonna have to build it yourself -

    Yep it is too bad they don't sell it anywhere... It looked like a simple but good idea, as I wanted to build a splitter for my backhoe. It also gave me some ideas on how I might be able to do the same thing with some parts I have around the house... After spending 3 or 4 hours using a normal splitter this last weekend (borrowed from a friend), it sure would be nice to not handle the rounds and just sit on the backhoe.. :^)

    I might make some progress on my idea this weekend and will post some shots of what I do, if it works... :^)

    I would be very interested in seeing how it turns out. I wish I had some skill to build one, seems like for the cost and effort used to do it the "old fashioned" way IE: log splitter with tractor hydro, or even with PTO pump or separately powered the cost just for that setup versus, if you didn't need your BH bucket during wood splitting season, makes this idea worth considering, especially when you can split fire wood by siting on the BH instead of moving splitting, piling, etc.
    If it turns out your can make something like that for under a few hundred.
    I didn't see any patents or anything liek that, so I'm not sure this guy can actually get anyone interseted in "continuing" the manufacturing he has stopped.
    Wonder what he was chargin for completed units?

    It is a shame that its not available. I liked that it would lift the round into the truck, then split it - saves a load of back work. Also, the video shows how larger rounds were split - my Ponderosa pine will get up to 42" on the butt. It IS a real challenge rolling a big round up onto a conventional splitter.

    yeah I bought my tractor basically b/c I'm getting too old to bend over and pick up firewood. This thing seems too good to be true, can't understand why it didn't catch fire?
    They must have wanted way too much $$$.

    The interesting thing will be if the curl on my BH bucket has enough power to make it worth while. It is only a 2 1/2 in cylinder (I think that is around 5 ton worth of force).... Originally I was thinking of building one with a cylinder that would replace the bucket, but I saw this yesterday and it got me thinking a different path. I was suprised after searching on here that no body else had seen it (at least that I could find).

    I will post my progress for those who are interested...
