    I bucked up some pieces of a 24" Ash. I'll wait to borrow my buddies MS660 as I can't get to either side of the trunk with my 5100s now.
    The game is how many med/large splits do you think I got out of one chunk. I'll post the picture later. Let's see who gets the right number.

    22, but if those splits behind the splitter are considered "medium/large", all bets are off.

    17. Really it would be 18, but the sum total of one split will be lost to kindling due to it breaking apart

    If true that only one and not two people are off by one, that would have to mean there are fewer than 12 or more than 28. I cannot imagine splitting that 29 or more ways, so I'll go for 11.

    I didn't think I 'd get 35 splits out of one chunk myself, so kudos to "Got Wood" for posting 36!

    WB good move using the beer can for scale...I thinking that could be a wheel barrow load there. Yeah that's a lot of wood from 1 round. I should know that since I'm splitting way smaller now too.
