I seen one of these on the internet and I had to have one. I made quick coupler to go along with it. Just trying it out and it seems to work good. It may not be as fast as two guys with a conventional splitter however It beats handling the wood by hand!
That reminds me, I need a cup holder in that machine!
I have seen guys use a hydraulic hammer with a wide chisel on it to split wood before not sure how well it worked it was on a 4.5ton excavator

works great with a blunt point and frozen wood.
I would like to see your coupler and hear about it's construction.
I have an auger attachment I need to put to work as well as a plate compactor to modify and adapt to my little TB016.Then there's the 'ripper-saw' I could use more often with a QC setup.
Keep up the good work.
Here is the coupler all tacked up and ready for final welding. One thing I did learn is how much metal moves when it's being welded! I'm by far no expert, just trying to save a few bucks. Draftsight is great for drawing parts to be cut out of plate metal. I need one pin turned down 1/4" and a hole and threads cut for a bolt to retain the link pin and the coupler is finished. I'm starting a tilt mechanism for a 42" bucket and drawing some ears for a couple of bucket blanks I got from USA attachments to fit this coupler. Stay tuned.
good job....I built one for my skid
Great job! I like your machine. It looks like a monster that will tear any kinds of wood into pieces!
It will save your back that's for sure. It's now painted orange to keep the rust away.
