    Let's see, I can buy this beauty for $850, or for $149.00 more I can have a brand new 22 ton Husky. Decisions, decisions...

    Log Splitter - $850 (Red Lion)

    Yep, I've seen similar ads around here. People are nuts...I wonder if they find a sucker somewhere?
    Currently using the 10% coupon I just received from TSC I can buy that new Huskee for $953 including sales tax. This is tempting to me but I'll regret it if they run another sale along with a $100 store credit like last year.

    Don't wait too long either. With oil sticking us like it is, firewood is going up in value, as will everything involved in producing it.

    I am considering buying the same exact log splitter at TSC.
    How can i get my hands on one of those 10% off coupons? I have searched, but with no luck.

    Thanks!

    Go in and ask the manager for an end of year 10% incentive to sell one. Most have good luck with that. If you don't succeed there, try another store. May try to get a quote from a HD store and see if they promote their units with a discount. Use that information to nudge TSC. I would only get the TSC Huskee vs other big store chain lines.
