Small tractor with mounted log splitter or buzz saw and wood wagon make for an all in one wood-cutting rig that would serve any homesteader well.
Almost everything Jerry Johnston brings to the woods to cut firewood is home-built and designed to work with his Yanmar 4-WD 16-hp tractor. Equipment includes a 3-point, PTO-driven buzz saw, a log splitter, and a wood-hauling trailer that pulls behind either machine.

Log splitter is operated by a PTO-driven hydraulic pump. The 3 by 3-inch main frame serves as the oil reservoir.
