Hadn't really thought I was ready to buy a splitter yet considering its my first year of burning. I came across a john deere 52 splitter for around 300 bucks, seems like a a good cheap way for me to get into wood processing. My concern is that its only a 12 ton splitter. Not sure if this is underpowered for me doing 2 to 3 cords a year. The guy said he has babied it for 10 years and it has new hoses. Any advice would be great, Im not trying to rush into anything but I don't want to miss out on a good deal.
