Thanks, Tim -- I like the more compact under-slung design of the 7-ton unit you linked to. It weighs a bit less than the 5-ton, too. But the prices are a lot higher.

A possible method of making the manual unit faster is lay the log on it *before* retracting the piston, and when the log drops down, close the valve, and you only have to pump it closed again a little bit...
