The winch can be used to hold the conveyor up even when you are splitting wood or moving the unit around the yard, the conveyor
still must be pinned or bolted in place for highway travel.
The body extension that is part of this kit allows you to get more height on your conveyor when you are cutting and splitting 18" or longer pieces.
The winch allows you to raise and lower the conveyor from the working area of the processor and still allows full access to the log splitter cage and chainsaw.
It does not compromise any of your work area, the safety cage still lifts easily to access the splitter area or get at the chain saw and makes it easier to adjust the conveyor height or move the processor.
