Looking for an answer to our firewood supply and came across this..

Beyond my engineering skills but still impressive and much faster than tractor/hydraulic splitters I have used!

Do not think it would handle our Australian yellow box timber. Would need a bit more that 1.5HP

I saw a version that was powered by a small steam engine. It appealed to me as it was able to produce it's own fuel . The small chips and nasty bits that wouldn't stack well were more than enough to keep it going .
