    One more question about log splitters. Does anyone have any reviews or experience with the Sear's Craftsman 27 ton log splitter. It comes with a 6.5 HP Briggs engine. They are on sale now for $1000 new (regular price $1300). I split about 10 cords a year, nothing too crazy. Hoping this will be able to handle that workload.

    Oh, and I forgot to attempt to answer your question concerning the specs and your requirements. I bought the 22 ton model that Harbor Freight Tools sells and in the 4 months since I've owned it it has split over 20 full cords with no problem. (And it has split some very large, knarly rounds.)
