    Cool. Will this work with a torque converter or does it have to be a manual? I feel like this is spinning too slow. With the passenger side wheel on the ground, the driver's side would be spinning twice as fast as normal. Is this an older truck in 4 low and the front hubs unlocked?

    What is going on here? I thought the safety police had banned them?

    That is a very fine pitch, I have used a tractor mounted one quite a bit and it was much more aggressive. I am surprised this one kept feeding as well as it did. The problem with this method is the roughness of the pieces, they do not stack efficiently.
