    Guy wants 1,000 for it. I am thinking no more than 750 tops, that still might be too much. What do you guys think? He says it has been sitting for 3 years, again it is about eight years old. Bought it from a local mom and pop store at least.

    Sweet that's what I was hoping to ask. If it is meant to be he will take 500. If not he can sit on it for another 3 years..... :)

    This guy is saying that his is "heavy duty, also the home depot model is a bottom shaft, mine is side shaft over head valve, iron sleeve " His is not the toy log splitter than home depot is selling

    Any idea of what this guy is saying?

    I could be wrong because I am not a wood splitter expect..yet...but I think he feels that because he bought it at a local hardware store it is better. He might be right though, I heard something about older Cub Cadets are better in quality, before they changed to MTD?

    I know this not the splitter your looking at, but I bought a 22 ton Huskee at TSC for under $1000 with 6.5 horse engine and it splits everything I have put on it. I wouldn't pay $1000 for an 8 year old one unless it came with 10 cords of wood. :)

    If it's in great condition i might consider paying 500-600 bucks any more i'll invest in a new one. The ram is mostly what you are paying for. And most are all the same. Also how mamy cords do you plan splitting in a year?

    How did you get it for less than 1,000, I thought they were around 1300? Looks like you got a good deal

    1k is too much imo mostly cause it couldn't have cost more than that when new. But I have to admit the older MTD's are better...so imo that's a good thing going for it.

    Hard for come up with a number without looking at it. If the gentleman insists on that price I would check out the Huskee at TSC with a coupon you can get a new machine for that about the same plus ....people.

    People are important too...they'll get you free warranty parts or service.

    I went to my local Indiana TSC and asked the salesman if he could do anything on the price. He said he had a coupon in his pocket good for 10% off. This was 2 years ago, not sure if you can get this deal. I paid around $900 with tax out the door.
