Awesome thread !! I just came home with a Timber Champ 7 ton baby splitter today. Couldn't find much for splitters in town this time . 1 week past PFDs showing up in most Alaskan's bank accounts. I tried it out soon as I got my wife's new kitchen range off loaded and in the house . And unboxed the splitter , put the front legs on . plugged it in and split 2 good size rounds. They were too long for the bed of the Champ. So I stood them up vertical and split thru sidew ways. I didn't know if it would work. It did ! Anyway thanks to your thread I had some confidence that a kinetic splitter was a very viable option. Even tho the 7 ton Timber Champ us tiny compared to yours. I can always upgrade to a Split Second in the future. I see what appears to be a conveyor in the last couple pics. Imo a mandatory feature for processing wood. Way to go !!
