I like to wear my chaps when I snap a load like that over my knee, :)
I bought the Sears splitter in 2006. No issues at all. Have changed hydo filter twice, and engine oil twice. For $999. I can't complain .
I filled 2 large 20 gallon trash cans so far. With another month to burn my total ash will be about 2.5 cans. Where do you folks depose of your ash...

This is what I do in the winter. Read a few good posts like yours, have a beer or two,reload the stove when need. Rince , wash repeat. lol.
