    Default Log splitter with lift table and 4 way wedge

    Just finished my log splitter except for cleaning up and painting. It has a Honda GX390 with Haldex 22 gpm pump. Using a 4 x 24 cylinder for splitting along with a 2 x 6 inch cylinder for the lift table and a 2 x 6 inch cylinder for the 4 way wedge.

    Thanks, I have most of the bugs out of it. It works pretty good. Going to make another one similar to this one to sale.

    looks like quite a machine.
    1 thing you might consider is some teeth on the pusher foot (or whatever it is called) the keep the log held a little more securely

    Nice overall design.

    One caveat....unless those street-ells are forged steel, I'd get rid of them (if malleable/cast iron). They look like light-duty cast water pipe fittings?

    You are correct. I do have some bad fittings. Kind of run out of funds at the end of the project. I am going to replace them before I paint the splitter. Also, I have a galvanized fitting or two and they contaminate the hydraulic oil if left in too long. Thanks for the advice.

    Nice looking splitter! I agree weld on a few jagged pieces to the plate to keep the log from flying out. Some of those pieces can really launch out of there.
