Fire Wood Processor
Bit of an update.
The machine is running well. With 5 hours showing on the meter I've cut and stacked about 8 face cords with relatively little labour other than stacking it.
A load of logs would take me 5 fairly hard days work to handle with the chainsaw and tractor mounted splitter. Can see doing it in 2 with the processor.

Did you change your log infeed ratio?

My wife would ask me how many days total it would take me to do it the "old" way versus the "new" way. Then she would ask how many days and how much money converted to days it took to build the processor. Then she would ask me to amortize that over how many years and give her a figure as to how much time I was actually saving. Then she would tell me to get back to work!

You've built yourself one hell of a bartering chip, I'll say.
