    I don't like porn but wood porn seems appropriate. Here are the fruits of my labor:

    Impressive! I rented a splitter this weekend and cranked out three cords myself.

    That is a rental splitter and it was FAST. I have used a Speeco 22T for a while from a friend and the difference in cycle time from the Speeco 22T to the I&O;20T was very significant. The only trouble is the I&O;is also $3,000 so that's got me thinking splitting will just take longer for me!

    In the meantime, I am going to rent this bad boy again. $54 for the weekend cannot be beat.

    at $ 54 for the weekend I would not be in any rush to go and buy my own. Even if you have to rent it 2 times each year that is still about 10 years of renting before you could pay off your own mid grade splitter. There are other advantages of having your own, but at this rate I think I would stay on the rental program.

    $54 for the weekend? The WEEKEND? geez, my local yard charges $75.00 / day and sometimes the machines are good and other times ... not so. If I could rent a splitter for $54 / weekend, I would probably not split very much by hand (or rather, by maul).

    I'll post some pics when its all stacked but my guess is 4. We'll see how good I am at guessing. Also, the cycle time on that Iron and Oak is EIGHT seconds. WOW.

    Yes big time, or any thing else that isn't bolted down. Last summer I lost due to theft about 3 cords of oak and hickory and around 50 5' pallet rack cross members. Got on the security cams but could not get plates on trucks, added a new cam in Aug. put out a bait pile. nailed them in a week. no compensation just satisfaction, best part when the police went lookin for them ended up having wife call one home from work, I sure you can imagine what took place at that point, if you are or have been married.
