    Wood splitters

    I have used my dads regular tw3 numerous times with some of the nastiest wood you can imagine. Definitely wouldnt hesitate if I were you to look into the LD version. Its either 24 or 25 inch blocks the LD one will take which im definitely good with that lol. I can always add the 4 way later on...

    Also, when I say bought it mean ordered lol. As with most anything currently theres a pretty good wait time. I was told probably February or March which is perfect since I wont truely need it until spring so it'll give me a some time to get my hoses setup and ready to go

    Outta curiosity, why the HD model? I bought just the regular TW3 with the table grate. Not an overly huge fan of a 4 way wedge in my own opinion, and didnt see a need for the log lifter as if its that big of a piece the nice thing with the 3 point hitch you can just drop it down lower.

    The nice thing with the tw3 splitter I bought is it comes with a seperate hydraulic tank and pump that runs off the p to shaft which makes it much quicker.

    Appreciate all the comments, went ahead this morning and ordered the timberwolf tw3 with a table grate. For what I do and how I do it this will work just fine for me. On a side note the dealer is bought it from is a farmer. So definitely the type of person id rather deal with anyhow

    Wood splitters

    Im not sure how they figure the tonnage is only 14.5, I saw that and wondered about that. The tw3 that my father has has split anything that's ever been put threw it. Btw the axe is definitely far from an option. All the lifting I do at work and owning a sawmill and whatever other projects life...

    I wouldnt use the tractors hydraulics. The timberwolf comes with a pump that runs on the pto shaft and its own seperate hydraulic tank. What I do and what works best for me as I typically cut and split alone anyway is cut the trees down de limb, burn the brush and stack logs as I have a grapple...

    Wood splitters

    Thats a good point on the type of wood. Some of it is simple but alot of it is pretty gnarly. Especially alot of the spruce I sell as camp wood. I think force behind the tractor would be far more important to me over the speed. Never really thought of it like that

    I did just look and seen that shipping is between $1200 and $1500 and was reading right now the wait time is extremely long. Think the cycle time is 8 seconds on the tw3 timberwolf and 4 on the easton ultra. Was also checking out the American conveyors and splitters tractor mounted splitter...

    I do split and sell wood in the side, part of why I wouldnt use the tractors hydraulics as the cycle time is definitely quicker.

    Wood splitters

    Looking at a couple of different wood splitters. My dad has had a timberwolf tw3 for quite a long time now, ive always liked it as its got a lot more splitting force compared to something you would pick up at a farm store. Anyways, I bought a new dk5010 and my original plan was to buy the same...

    Availability

    Think it depends on your area really and how much the dealer is pushing tractors. I ordered mine July 23rd and it came in 2 weeks ago with my 3rd function. Im reading several months on both for others so I was extremely shocked when they called already
