    12/20 Log Splitter

    The new log splitter arrived finally. We live near Murgon in Qld and the log splitter had to travel via several transport companies before I received it. We expect that out here so, all good. After having the usual hassle understanding the assembly instructions I finally got it ready. For those having the same problem, simply refer to the photos in BBT's website. A picture paints a thousand words !! After filling with the appropriate oils etc, it fired up on the 2nd pull. I then bled out all the air from the hydraulics and then put it to work. Awesome is the best word to describe it !! Nothing I threw at it even slowed it down. Highly recommended !! It will now take its place amongst all the other BBT machinery in the shed.

    I have bolted and roped the splitter upright on a carry/all on the back of my tractor. Thus I shall split the logs in situ before loading onto a trailer.
