I picked up a Timberwolf TW-1 splitter used last fall. I had a troybuilt horizontal vertical one that I hated and wanted something better. It has a 4 way wedge and the table option. Now I needed a way to get
The logs on. They make a manual log lift as an option but wanted $500 for it. I figured I could make a hydraulic lift for much less than that.
Got some 1” sq tube and made the framework. Picked up a 2” x 8” stroke cylinder and a valve with power beyond and this is what I came up with. Works great and will pick up a 36” log without issue. Also helps as a work table when you are splitting
