    I was all set to get a DR 6ton but with shipping its almost a 1000 bucks up here. So I have backed off and am looking at a new splitter offered by Canadian Tire. The advantage is there is a Canadian tire within a 3 hour drive so not to bad. I will be able to take it in for trouble and not ship it myself.
    The splitter I am talking about is a new offering from them a 6 ton yardworks for 629.99. I know its early and no one has used this splitter but what about the name has anyone experience with the smaller 4 ton yardworks that they are discontinuing. I suspect they are discontinuing the 4ton because it wouldn't do the job?

    Reason for electric is its going in the basement and I have furness and stove. So wood is cut for furness and put in basement for winter. Then I will feed most to furness but split what I need for stove from furness wood supply during winter.


    If anyone has any recommendations on 6 ton electric splitter I would appreciate it.

    Probably is the same model. Crappy Tire just outsources for it' stuff.

    They have a great return policy in case is stinks.
