    Thanks for the pics. I just bought a Troy Bilt wood splitter designed to run off of a Horse rear tine tiller PTO. But I intend to use my Gravely to power it, of course. I like your set up and how it articulates in the middle. Very nice! I hope to build something similiar.
    Thanks again!

    Hi thanks for thr replys on the splitter i have not been on in a while .Ill take some more pics of it soon im putting a toungue jack with dolly whell to roll it around when its not attached .As for the tank the beam works as the resivor .This was a cool old attachment from a roto hoe tractor i justa added the heavy axle and fabbed up the gear box bracket from an old mower deck and it worked great with a ton of power on my 12 horse or my 7,6 L8 .Thanks again Barry
