    40 yrs young and always trying to find an easier way...
    -Traler w/winch for the heavies and logs on scrounge days
    -Peavey or Cant hook for leverage and off ground cutting
    -Fiskars for the easy small rounds
    -Hydro splitter for everything else
    ...and of course this, for cadilac comfort transporting.... http://www.flickr.com/photos/90602641@N02/8294187562/

    This has been a great thread, thanks to all of your ideas. I'm 57 and have mostly just been using "Boog" power to muscle things around, still hand splitting and such. But my back is starting to feel it now and I know I HAVE TO START WORKING SMARTER. Thanks again for all the great tips!

    I agree fully. Currently 67, I started serious exercise about 10 years ago because of a broken hip. Have far fewer back problems and can keep hoisting scrounged logs and my grandson without difficulty. As you get older, you start losing muscle mass quickly without a well-balanced regular exercise program. Helps keep the weight down as well.
