    My Man was having some real issues. I have never had such problems. Just keep splitting. When youn throw a couple splits that are still a little "Stuck". They break apart when they hit your stack. IMO

    I'm not going to pretend that I understand your milk jug question, but as to splitting horizontally, I don't think you'd catch ME trying to lift a big starter piece like that, up on to a splitter!

    That guy is going about it the hard way. I wood half that round then slab off the edge and move it 5-6 inches and continue. Lots of wasted movement there but maybe hes a new splitter owner and hasn't figured it out yet.

    That had to be his very first time for splitting wood! Talk about making a job difficult! A good man could do that much faster with about half the effort.

    Y'all are being harsh. I was just being sarcastic. Can't imagine anyone trying to split that horizontal, and I don't think he was trying to be efficient, just trying to show what his new splitter can do.

    Nothing about efficiency there Danno. Just watching the man you can see he does not know how to work. Some folks are just that way.

    That was funny. He would love our 60" rounds. Way too much wasted effort there. And I don't sit off to the side of the splitter either. Makes my back ache looking at this.
