    Yes race fans, for only $1500.00, you too can have this beat up old splitter. Features include, left out in the rain, free rust with your purchase, and faded paint. All of this and more can be had for the low, low price of only $1500.00. Tractor supply has the 28 ton huskee for $1699....decisions, decisions....beat up old splitter for $1500, or a new 28 ton huskee for $200.00 more. In it's day, this splitter was probably top of the line, but it's late 2011, not 1991. Enjoy.

    Looks suspiciously like my 20+ year old MTD except that it looks more like 120 years old. Someone did not take very good care of that splitter. I'd offer $100 for it.

    That splitter is a bargain! Grab that, then come pick up this cheap...$2000 (yes two thousand dollars) Earthstove model 100:

    But it's not just the stove...you get three doors! One glass, one steel with the ceramic disk (shown) and one mesh! You also get a couple of sections of pipe - one was cut in half to remove the stove...but hey, a little duct tape and good as new. You also get 38 bricks which used to make the hearth!

    WOW.That's right up there with those clowns who offer you some huge tree,hanging over their house & power lines but insist you have insurance & heavy equipment to get your "FREE" wood.Just because they're too ignorant & cheap to pay for a regular tree service.

    One of my favorites is when you see people selling trees for $300.00 each. Live trees. Live as in, you go to their property, pay them $300, cut down their tree for them and take away 3/4 of a cord of unsplit rounds. I might have to do that...my bank account is getting too full and I need to make room. Yeah, right ;-)

    I sent an email to the clown selling the rusted old splitter asking if the muffler bearings, flux capacitor, goesinta switch and smokeshifter were in good shape. He hasn't responded.

    Does the f^cking cinder block guy really think people will want to deal with him? I'd pay the f^cking $.75 for new ones rather than deal with that f^cking guy.

    He dropped the price to $1250.00. I must resist the temptation to take advantage of this spectacular deal
