Mike Pepler demonstrates how to move firewood using a trailer bike. His bicycle has some battery power which helps with hills and he can carry 50kg of logs from his woodland using this trailer and bike.
If you've got lots of timber to split this is the machinery you need. It's a complete contrast to the low tech version where you just need to split a few logs by hand (see Mike Pepler in one of our other films "Making Kindling from Logs Using a Frow" ) Made by Posch, this piece of kit will rattle through a tree trunk in less than a minute, with the split logs coming out at the other end. Demonstrated by a student from Plumpton College and described by tutor Tony Marshall. Tony also briefly describes some of the courses and options available for those studying forestry at Plumpton.
