the one way to make any money at it is not to pay by the hour,you will only get a pickup or 2 split per day. pay by the face rick or cord split. then you will get a dumptruck split every day. now, with the 100,000 splitter to pay off and run, id figure you need a tractor trailer or railcar to fill every day.remember supply and demand. your operation will double or triple the wood for sale in the area, unless you ship it out, it may get real cheap in the town or county your in if you flood the market.
No oak here. Firewood sells for $225.00 per cord. Bought a Multitek 2040 today will be here in 1 week coming from PA.I don't think I will flood the market I won't be cheaper than the top end guys. I just will do a better job every time offer more to the customer such as custom cutting and earn a large part of the market share'. We Have about 350 cord of wood in the shop yard now to process.Not the first time I have added a new service. I know it will take time that's ok. I can wait
