This thing does one thing only. Split logs. And it does it very well. Super heavy but that's one of the reasons it works so well. I love the steal handle. Some complain it's too short but it seems fine to me. You will get a serious workout using this thing but I actually like that. And it never gets stuck. If you get it that deep into a log, it's probably split. And if not, it pulls right out.
There are a lot of advantages to having complete steel construction. Heavy weight falls hard, and you can't snap the handle while hammering a spike, but the handle is about 10 inches too short. If you can swing it, and you have a welder, I might recommend adding an extension.
The maul works great, especially after a sharpening! Also, the way it splits the wood makes up for the extra effort required to swing it - it is heavy. It rarely gets stuck in the log which has been the problem with other mauls or axes I've used over the years. The only draw back for me is the handle seems a little short - I'm 5'-11 1/2" - but since my two sons have been doing most of the splitting, this is no longer a problem for me!
This maul is very heavy, but it's going to last forever. Experienced splitters will appreciate the heft and durability. Because of the shape of the head, the maul can sometimes twist when striking a log, so be cautious at first when you start using this product.
For the price this splitter maul is more than I expected. The weight and steel handle is perfect. It has a dual purpose not only will it split huge logs, but with the weight is so great you just turn it around and use it for a sledge hammer with a wedge, so its like 2 tools in one. I could not have dreamed of such a perfect tool and the price alone was fantastic. I would recomend this over any other wood splitter I have to give it a A+++++++. Thank you very much
I really like this maul! It is pretty much indestructable and you can really split some wood. A heavy maul that takes some muscle to use, but gets the job done. You can pound on it with a hammer if it gets stuck without having to worry about breakage. I think this may be the last maul, I'll ever have to buy!
Combined this with an 8# sledge, & I got rid of my 10 Ton wood splitter! (splitter, for me, was a pain: fluids,fuel,maintenance,hard to use, can be dangerous, moving & transporting it, & storage!) ( I'm 61, & split about 8 to 10 cord a yr.) You don't swing this like a 4# axe! JUST LIFT IT & DROP IT! -2' for small wood, & over Your head for 3'x18" blocks! N.B.- Your wood should be 1.)- dry, or 2.)- frozen! I just split 4 cords of wet, Maple blocks (frozen) BEAUTY!, & I work @ a desk, so I like the exercise. The only negative! - it might grow legs! -people will be envious! Santa brought 2, I for me & 1 for my son. I stamped our name in both of them! because I lent out my old 1, didn't write the name down, & nobody remembers borrowing it! The handle has not come loose so far! (that was a joke! lol!) OH! YES! IT WEIGHS 16#'s not 12#'s, if weight is a concern! Love This Baby!
The maul is pretty awsome.. i have split 3 trailer/truck loads this past weekend and haven't had but one issue.. the handle is a little short. I am 6'2" and a 1 foot log (to set the wood on) is pretty much a must. The maul is tough and easy to use, never had it get stuck in a piece of wood, have been splitting oak, pine, etc. no problem! Good maul!
I read a lot of reviews about mauls and a lot said they break relatively easily, but this got great reviews. Construction and value on this are really good. Very simple - never gets significantly stuck. It is a little heavy but I got used to it after a few sessions. Highly recommend.
This maul will get the splitting job done. It can be tiresome to swing if you have a lot of wood to split but it never gets stuck and very few pieces of wood will resist being split. You simply cannot break it.
Bought this splitter about a year ago. Like most have said it needs a longer handle which I plan on fixing. Very good for the price. Beat on it with a 10lb slegde hammer, mushroomed the hammer and barely chipped the paint on the maul. Much nicer than the 8lb fiberglas maul that i broke. If you have the muscle it will split anything a small hydraulic unit will for much less. Overall the tool to have if you like to do the job yourself.
works very well goes through knotty pine with only 3 to 4 swings 14 inch logs does not even get stuck even if the wood is wet. went through 10 inch yellow birch like nothing 20 inch myple logs 18 inches long with knots.
This maul will get some work done. I split and sold about 25 cords of wood last summer and I can say this tool will be used for many years to come! You still have a few peices of wood that make you work a bit but for the most part "The Maul" does the work for you.
The only down side to the maul is the short handle, however with a little time and some minor adjustments I was still able to split my normal Cord an hour. I am 6' 3" and it really gets the wood done. I am still going to add a little bit to the handle I think, but it will work great if you give it some time and get used to it.
This is a great tool for splitting wood. Works with oak, pecan, and any other species you might want to split. No more chasing wedges which go flying off into the weeds. One good roundhouse swing with this maul will split just about any log with one stroke. The cushioned handle keeps the tinglies away from your hands should you have an overly tough log. Don't worry, even the very tough ones give in after a few strikes. This may not work as easy as a hydraulic splitter, but this one just burns carbs.
Man, I LOVE my Truper maul. Just a downsized monster maul, but it still does the job well. I have used mine to split elm and I am not sure there is a more difficult wood to split.
There are those who say that you can let the weight do the work with this one, that is hyperbole, at least if you are splitting blocked wood. You still need to put some muscle into it, but if you do, this WILL split blocks that otherwise would require multiple wedges and a sledgehammer. And it does not stick in the wood the way a traditional axe or maul will.
The only fault I can find is that the hand grip on mine eventually got a little loose. I just pay attention and snug it back up from time to time but you might want to glue it if it does this to you.
Maul split the wood itself, people if you see the handles to small dont buy it or just adjust your stance. I am 6'6" and you know what I just adjusted my stance and it made the world of difference, its a absolutely amazing, product def. makes you get more muscles. Its alot cheaper then buying a splitter and people thinking of buying it if you are tall adjust your stance and if 12lbs- which is heavy for a maul - is to much either deal with it or get a lighter one nothing is supposed to be easy, just a great time saver cant praise it enough it beats getting a narrower maul stuck and having to beat it out with a sledge which is most likely 12lbs.....
