    My 28 ton, Honda driven Huskee has not met a log it couldn't beat up until today. Been through the ugliest, knottiest Oaks and Maples. Today it met a section of an Ash that was taken down recently. It was alive at that time. The section was where most of the limbs split off the trunk. She just couldn't bust it, at least in one spot. Moved the log over 4 inches and it broke through. Never saw that happen before. Guessing the green state of the wood was a big factor.

    My friends Dad has a wood splitter that is powered by a Ford straight 6, 300 cubic inch. Has stalled that a couple times on some big ones.

    That's a LOT of motor for a splitter. Those 300's were great engines. Made a lot of torque and were damn near immortal. Next best thing to a diesel.

    That one looks tough enough to switch to vertical.

    No switching required; all splitting done vertically.
