    I heard the came out with a new Timber Champ Electric Kinetic. A 10 ton model. Anyone use one yet ?
    Any other new or unique splitters. ???

    While we r on the topic of powered splitters.
    It seems to me some outfit ought to be making an affordable firewood conveyor by now. Anyone know if there are any available ?

    I demoed an Eager Beaver firewood processor several years ago. It was a cord+ an hour machine. I was Very impressed. But couldn't scrape up 29 K $ at the time.

    A conveyor is the easiest way to move split wood coming off a splitter. As most of Alaska isn't farming country, hay conveyors aren't very common up here. I know I could modify one of them.

    Against my recommendation (lol). My father bought a 12’ HUD-son. Chain conveyor. I thought he should’ve got the 16 footer. Paid 3,000 for it and I thought it was pretty much useless until we got our new super splitter now there’s actually wood in the conveyor all the time and it dumps into the dump trailer pretty nicely now. With the new splitter we can actually go to the woodlot and split and take it home split instead of just taking home the rounds. Where as before it took a long time and I’d rather be home splitting
