    Thats the best part of owning a splitter. You go out for a few hours and do your thing. Then wait a week to do it again if you feel like it! Hard to tell but I bet you have a cord and a half plus there depending on the depth...

    I ran a few loads through the splitter today. I know it was less than a cord cuz I didn't run out of gas. I get about a cord to the tank.

    Funny Lligetfa, thats kinda the way I judge too. I figure if I run a tank or two it was productive!

    Good job! I need to get out and run my splitter, I have a cord or so that needs to be split. I have to finish cutting some standing dead ash so I've been holding off till I get that done.

    All I have left to split is some burly, gnarly, crotch, and crooked pieces that I've put aside. They are a PITA to split and stack. I've got several chunk piles on the go already and the wife served me with a clean up order. I'm thinking I need an outdoor fire pit for a weeny roast.

    I've been splitting off and on all summer. The wood shed was completely empty this March, wanted to split enough wood to get a year ahead. Put the splitter away yesterday with about 9 to 10 cords split and stacked. I will post some pictures of my stacks, it will be good to give the splitter (and my back) a break for a while.

    Is that a soft left rear tire or did the suspension bottom out from the angle?

    There is a 12,000# winch on there, and yes the rear tire is a bit soft, the trailer is maxxed out on this load. There's probably 5500 to 6000 lbs on it!
