My father rented a splitter for the weekend. It was the first time I used a splitter and these things are awesome My brother had several very large trees cut in December. I split 2 cords by hand over the past couple months. My dad said I was being young and dumb and decided to get a splitter for the weekend. So, my brother, father, and I split the remaining wood today. We figured we split about 4-5 cords today. Very tired and sore and the beer is helping right now. I was amazed at the power of the splitter to go through larger rounds. Very cool. A good day!
