Chopping loads of a wood can be a burden, especially if you're house/cabin is on wood heat. Looks like I might need one of these babies!

I bet I could have all the wood I'd need for the next 10 years cut up at my cabin with just a day with one of those things.

Nice! Any idea on cost? I know a lower used bobcat goes for around $15,000 - $20,000 here how much for the attachment? I would love to have a wood stove in my house as my parents own a hardwood flooring company and throw out 10's of thousands od square feet of all types of wood every year. Only issue is there is no good place to put one they way my house is setup, But once I move out I will be getting one in the house first thing.

The attachment alone is about $30k give or take a couple thousand.

So we are looking at atleast $45,000 for the combo, It would be cost effective if you rent it out or split wood for people, and not for just yourself as it would take many cords to re coup your costs.

My guess would be businesses that needs lots of split wood, like camp grounds, camps, etc. Then you can use it as a tax write off.

True, that could be very helpful for those guys!

even with that at 7 dollars a stack of wood your looking at selling 6500 stacks before even breaking even, say an average of 10 stacks per tree thats 650 tress, you better have a good piece of land.

Yea thats why I like the idea of using the hardwood my parents just toss out, They have everything from Iron wood, tiger wood, jatoba, white oak, red oak, maple and everything in between. Just ask den how hot jatoba burns :)

Wife was looking for 5 ft by 5 ft sections so yeah around 25 sq ft.

Trucking it wouldn't be an issues as I have some people that often roll through that area that could pick it up.

If you're looking at the best case scenario, yes. Worst case....use your imagination, then beat up the visual you get with a hammer for a few hours. LOL
