Log Splitters
#1
At the present time I still have a good supply of logs to split .



I know you can get more expensive power models,but I couldn't warrant their prices for what I want.



I wondered if anyone has tried these manual models ?

That's very interesting. It does look as if takes quite a lot of pressure to split them and I wonder how long they stay sharp. But if it works it would be brilliant.

I'm just hoping I have the weight to press the peddle down <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/laugh.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='laugh' /> although reading through the reviews it says it is easy to do.

My log splitter arrived this morning <img src='http://poultrychat.com/oldforumIcons/style_emoticons/default/thumbup1.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbup1:' /> I have tested it on a dry log and it split this with ease,so much easier than it would be with an axe.

The log I split was approximately 8 inch dia x 10 inches long. so I'm pleased with that. I'm not sure it would do wet logs as well,but then all logs should be dried before splitting.

It is still working well, the logs sit on two bars which can be seen on the video link. Once the log starts on the splitting head it is held until it splits.

Sorry Zenith - more water? what a waste - no me thinks must learn to read properly.



Might invest in one of these so that I can do them myself. At the mo I have to put the big ones aside for chopping at some later stage by hubby (I have tried myself with an axe but just can't manage) so it would be good to be able to do them myself.
