Case splitter
« on: September 19, 2011, 12:14:25 am »
I am not sure if this is the Wright place to post this but here we go. I have had this 28 hp diesel Case maxi cable plow for about 5 years and thought that it should make a cool splitter. The plow is all hydraulic and all I need is the splitter part so off I went looking for parts. I found most of what I needed and here are some pictures of what happened. It works well so fare. The splitter is held on to the plow were the blade would attached for placing phone cable. There is a shaker box that is at the back of the plow so I added quick disconnects to the motor and put disconnects on the splitter so it is easily changed back to a plow. Well I have seen some of you allís cable plows used for other things so I thought I should show you mine. ;D

Thatís a Great Idea !  I have seen several of them go for scrap prices at auctions and the next one I see will be mine . Seems like I am always pushing the splitter around and that would solve that problem .

That wood is split 3 ways. My father and I fell and bucked the trees. We only kept the good stuff for sawing and made the rest in to fire wood. There was about 12 trees in all. One of the partners in the deal was hired to remove the trees and clean up all that was left. So as we cut off any thing that didn't scream fire wood or saw logs and it got packed away with a track hoe to be burnt on site. We left enough for the operator to grab and not make a mess. It was about 2 miles from his farm which is were every thing is set up. I used the skytrak for the ones by the power lines and loaded the logs on his truck with it to. The skytrak belongs to the third partner. It works out well for all of us. I am supposed to get at a cherry orchard that is getting removed and I was told there is some logs worth sawing in there. We will see. But there should be some more fire wood there as well. I will take some pictures if it works out.
