Handy looking device there sean. We made up a log splitter that was powerd off the hydralics on the front of the matbro. But it was a two man job working it cause u needed someone sitting pushing the button on the joystick to put it up and down. So a few weeks ago when the wet weather stoped us working we modified it to work with a foot pedel making it now a one man operation.

I looked at those upright type splitters first off but they tend to be a bit expensive against the contraption I bought...it does a good job for me though but putting a splitter on my 801 will give me an excuse to run the the little brute through the cold winters instead of it being sat doing nothing
