    I thought it was alot of work to pull on the starter rope 3-4 times to get the splitter going ==c

    Did you see how many times he hit it before he had to kick it apart? What is it, a clean 14" maple round? Should have been about 6 hits to finish it.

    What a clown. I would keep buying oil if i settled on that being the best way to split wood. Anybody else notice knots in his strap on the second round? I do like his footwear though...

    It's nice to be young and healthy enough to move and jab around a log for 3 minutes like Sugar Ray Leonard.

    I threw in the white towel a few years ago and got a 35-ton splitter. My body thanks me.

    He is gonna lose a foot and bleed to death in the woods because he can't walk out swinging like that ! What a crazy dude.

    Maybe someone should tell him that all those videos of wood splitting in record time with little effort are frozen birch rounds. On second thought, he will be informed by the tendonitis in his elbows.

    That round, even without a strap, would take me a fraction of the time and energy that dolt just wasted

    I think I would spend less energy and expose myself to less risk if I had to climb this tree to get the tire first!!

    He's gonna show me how to save time splitting?

    Video is 4:18 seconds long. My splitter would have been done with that round 2:34 seconds ago. >>

    Right? I literally just walked outside and split 7 ash rounds in about that time frame give or take...and that included moving them about 20yds to my splitting block and throwing em on top of stacks. Lot of bad advice on the web with regard to wood processing

    You guys are all just jealous of his technique. Who cares if most of us on here could head butt or karate chop that piece of wood faster than he did whatever he was doing...
