    Is your log splitter vertical or horizontal ?

    Those new splitters are nice to use. Some have the option of switching from horizontal to vertical

    Does it stand alone or is it a 3pt hitch type ?

    Well, I don't have one yet. I have some pieces parts that I intend to turn into one eventually. I have a small pump, a tank, and an 8HP Horizontal shaft Briggs engine. I'm still looking for just the right "I" beam. (actually a 6" wide-flange beam would be ideal) I want to make it convertible from horizontal to vertical. Still working out the details though. (Does this sound like a common thread with me...or what LOL)

    I think that's a malady many of us suffer from.

    I don't have my own log splitter but I can borrow one from work whenever I need it. The one we have at work is both a horizontal and vertical. It isn't a real strong one though. I think it is a 9hp Honda on it. I would like to get our own splitter though if we keep getting firewood like we have been.

    Yep, I hate having to borrow things but sometimes you have no choice. Now borrowing work equipment that don't bother me one bit other then not knowing for sure if you will be able to borrow it because a customer actually paid to rent it LOL

    Most of the reason for me wanting to build one is that I don't think you get a good value these days. They want astronomical money for chintzy pieces of equipment. I know that for the same money and my own elbow grease, I can build a machine that is far superior in quality and durability.

    I agree with your reasoning.
