Did you like it? Was the subie powerplant quiet and easy to start. Any complaints?
Looking good, congratulations.....
Very nice ! I have wanted to get a splitter .. hope to soon.
The 4.5 Subaru engine is quiet and starts first pull. I know that will not always be the case. So far so good. 375 lbs so you can pull it around the yard if need be. I almost pulled it in my shed by my myself but too much incline. Plenty of power splitting big Mulberry rounds. Strained a little but went right through.
Thanks John. I've pondered it for years and just got one to save my arms and wrists although I'm beat right now from splitting all day.
Thanks Ram. I can now pick up rounds that I wouldn't have before
Best purchase you have ever made if you plan to keep heating with wood. Bought mine in 1988 and split some with it this afternoon. I did replace the B&S engine with a Chonda for $99 a few years ago. After how my shoulders were feeling in 1988 I can't imagine I would still be burning wood without that marvelous machine after 200 cords.
Like my neighbor says, "if you can use 'chinery. Use 'chinery."
Thats great, I almost laughed out loud. Honestly love those motors. They are quiet and cheap.
Very nice! Hope it gives you many years of service
You know that splitter just might save your back, consider it like getting health insurance. Good luck and safe splitting.
For sure we waited too long before buying a splitter. Once we had it we questioned our saneness on not buying sooner. It surely does save the shoulders, arms, wrists, and back. That is, it can save those body parts so long as you learn how to use it correctly. There are little tricks that save you a lot.
Yes Dennis oh Sensei. I am splitting all my big oak and mulberry rounds Vertically! Thanks
I put buying a splitter off several years as well. I haven't regretted buying my splitter once.
