yankee log spliter

,
February 22, 2009
By Anonymous
from Savannah, GA
"My partner and I split 80 to 100 cords a year, for the last 4 years, all oak.
We call it the Yankee log splitter, it just keeps on splitting, it cuts, it splits, slices and i think it dices, but we didn't buy that Accessorie . It don't take no sass from no southern oak, forks, knots. What it don't split it just cuts through it. it splits live oak like it was water oak. Customer are ways asking how did you split live oak, we lie and say we did it the old fashioned way, by hand. Best of all it sure does take a lot of hard work out log splitting, and the 2 of us are over 65.

"This is a great splitter i really like the power that the splitter has , i split 15 cords a year and this splitter has held up perfectly i especally like the log lift i have lifted logs that i couldn't even budge myself with it and it rolles it right into the wedge one thing i would add is the four way wedge becuase it saves a lot of time."
