    Default logsplitter lift

    I have Benn thinking of adding a log lift to my mtd log
    splitter. I don't believe I have the room for a hydrologic lift
    but I have thought about using an engine type lift. I saw one a
    harbor freight that mounts on the back of a truck with both a hydrologic
    ram and a cable. I would make my own base that I cs n move
    with my tractor forks. Has anyone else thought of this.thank you
    for any ideas

    Check out the Log Mule on you tube. It might work for you. I have the hydraulic log lift on my wood splitter and it works very well.

    A 32 inch oak round on the wood splitter. The log lift makes a good infeed table for small rounds to be split.

    The side leg type have there advantages of acting like a staging area, but my splitter has the cherry picker type and I use a set of homemade tongs to lift the log with the boom, the nice part about a boom lift is you just swing the log right onto the beam and the log can be anywhere in the splitters vicinity and you can grab it and lower it right onto the beam. I prefer the boom style I've picked up logs I could barely roll!

    A lift table is definately the way to go,and serves as a staging area.i use my splitter in the woods and sometimes its not easy to turn around,so in that case i wanted to be able to stand on either side of the machine to split.
    With the winch we can reach way out as far as the cable will reach and pull the rounds in to the splitter.ive learned to hook on one edge of the round rather than middle(so it cant roll).once youve got cable tension it wont slip off
    That being said ,a lift table is way quicker i bet,but i guess it boils down to are you in the woods,or splitting from a pile

    I took a different route and used a small electric winch to operate the log lift. The lift is a self contained unit and the winch is detachable for trailer loading also.
