Making your own tractor mounted log splitter is simple with our easy to follow plans. Step by step written instructions with digital photos of the splitter as it is made.
- 3 point splitters are easier to move compared to trailer type log splitters. 3pt wood splitters can also be easily raised and lowered for ideal working heights customized to individuals.
- Tractor splitters are cheaper to make compared to standard log splitters since the tractor has the hydraulic components. This wood splitter can be made for around $300 depending on the cylinder size you choose. You need steel, hoses, and a cylinder, you can use the control valve on the tractor, or put one at the splitter.
Our 3 point splitter operates in both horizontal and vertical positions.
Also included are calculations and discussion on cylinder selection and valve options if you desire to make a splitter with more force than our design.
