Build Your Own Firewood Processor

Why buy a firewood processor when you can build a complete processor for about the same price?

Why pay nearly $10,000 dollars for a firewood processor when you can make your own for approximately $2500?

The plans offered are for building a firewood processor. This machine is a hydraulically operated processor. The completed machine loads the log, cuts the log, and splits the round into 4 pieces. The operator need only roll the log onto the log loader, roll the log off of the log loader, then operate a hand crank and hydraulic levers.
