Really enjoy threads on wood splitters. The machine pictured below is thirty years old and on it's second engine, and the hydraulics have been rebuilt once. Not a brute in splitting force, vane pump, and a 3 1/2" ram. In most wood, as in the last two pictures, it does really well. The knotty Sitka spruce was another thing. That tree took three days to noodle, split and stack.
