Well it looks like it was a great weekend for the electric splitter crowd! I have to give Elk a big Thanks since I picked up my Iron Horse 6 Ton Electric Splitter this weekend and it is AWESOME! I could not be more pleasantly surprised with everything about it. With the extra 15% off last week it came to only $257 including tax. I highly recommend it even at the regular price of $289. I'll attach a link to a video I took of it in action. I really like the controls on it. You can turn the motor on permanently while you work but you do need to use both hands on the levers as a safety feature. But its not bad and I don't mind it at all. After shooting the video my wife came out to check it out. She ended up jumping on the controls and took over loading and running the thing for another 20 logs while I stacked! We both loved it. About the only thing we would improve (like others have said) is just building some sort of waiste high table to run it on to avoid stooping over. I have always been one to be proud of all my gas powered equipment as I have probably 10+ gas power tools. But after using this, a gas powered splitter is just not necessary for my needs of 3-4 cords per year. This will take up much less room and be much easier to maintain. I also have to say that these things are very well built and not nearly as 'weenie' as they look in pictures.
