Log splitter to firewood processor conversion. Taking an electric-hydraulic 7 tonne splitting force log splitter and converting it to a homemade firewood processor. The drawbacks of the current log splitter are the low height, single edge wedge and no firewood pan around the wedge so you have to constantly pick up pieces of wood you still want to split making the handling of the wood time consuming and annoying. Still better than splitting the wood with an axe though! Also you have to pre-cut the material you want to split. My plan is to put this log splitter on wheels, weld some steel to the trailer and around the wedge, add a log feed conveyor and a chain saw blade with separate electric motor and call it a firewood processor. It will make the firewood making process much simpler. Why haven't we done it sooner... It will take a log up to 3 m in length on the feed conveyor and a 35 cm cut log in the splitter since the stroke of the splitter is only 40 cm. I had to leave extra 5 cm wiggle room. But it's okay - our fireplaces are quite small. My sauna stove takes even as small as 25 cm firewood, and also my workshop stove. In addition to this creation I want to build firewood crates so we don't have to stack firewood ever again. And moving firewood will be as simple as that - just pick up the crate (with a machine) and deliver it wherever you want/need. No more re-re-re-stacking and unnecessary time consuming wood handling. Sounds like a TV commercial but it will be that good. Come along for the journey!

That little 7 ton splitter does great. Maybe I don't really need the 30 ton machine I have. But then, as an American, I feel the need for excess! 😁

Is 2000W enough for both moving log and spliting at the same time? Could it be upgraded if there is need?

Just found the videos of this build rather randomly. I really enjoyed watching as you engineered this as you went. Some great design features. Using the hydraulic as both the slitter-ram and the log advance was brilliant. Great design! On to the next video!

*** To GET your logs to transition into the splitter head, use square stock with repeating holes drilled with a gap. Then cut that stock straight down the length through the holes. Invert those and weld onto your log slide in several places. CONGRATS.. you just made teeth to feed the log with little to no slipping. Place them perpendicular to the piston. ***

I am gathering parts for something similar, but mounted to the side of my wood trailer so I can just push the split wood right into it. Planned on using V-rollers from a boat trailer with chainsaw chain looped on sprockets down the center to pull the log ahead with each split. We cut mostly dead fall Oak, Walnut, and Elm so the 4/6-way wedge unfortunately isn't an option with a 7 ton splitter. I am using a similar splitter and an electric saw for cutting to length along with a quiet generator. Great channel. Keep up the good work!

Love your videos. So much said without commentary. Had some ideas for quick builds for the new workshop. Build a metal ramp to slide items into shop over the lip at doorway. Set up an use the big lathe as an anchor and pull items into the shop with the winch from the ATV. And finally, build a work bench so you don't have to work on the floor all the time. My knees are starting to hurt watching you work. Keep up the great work.

A log splitter by definition has to actually split a log. I'm confused too say the least.

Electric motor for the ram, seems extensively enclosed by steel, will it be easy to remove for service or replacement. The hydraulic pump seems a bit underpowered is that due to the motors wattage?

Making firewood crates sound like a really good idea. That way you only touch the firewood twice-- once when you process it and place it in the crate, and the second time is when you pull it out of the crate and into the stove.

Awesome...... Idea - make the table smooth again & add big log dawgs (gravity hooks) over top the log. All on a horizontal pivot. Putting 5 or 10 log dawgs lengthwise along the log on both tables, close to the center-line & near the output.

I have to say, this has turned into a simple project that has certainly got out of hand... lol The amount of time, money and metal involved seems like you could have ordered in more split wood, stacked and ready to burn, then you would ever use... I get the real feeling that when you get this all automated, you will certainly need a more powerful hydraulic ram and faster motor. Thumbs Up!
