Tube Frame Log Splitter

Recommended Posts

We got this in the other day for a repair. Just had to fix a leak in the hydraulics and do some minor engine work. I have not seen this design before but it works great. Just has a 5 hp Briggs but it acts like a 15 ton or better unit. As far as I can tell it was a manufactured machine and not a home built. Tried some nice stringy Elm and those tubes don't flex at all. Based on the engine code this an 88 or 89 machine. I figure this design might give some ideas to those that like to make their own machines or attachments from scratch.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
