    I've got a 35 ton splitter. A Honda SXS. A Polar 1500 TA trailer. Stihl Woodboss.

    What else is out there I'm missing that I just HAVE to have that some others utilize?

    Several felling wedges. Awesome to keep a cut from pinching up when bucking on the ground.

    Fiskars X-27.

    Winch on your truck.

    I do wear my hard from work, and prescription safety glasses as well. Got a pair of Danners I cut wood in.

    So check, check and check.

    Got that splitter, no need for $100 axe. Don't need a winch for my truck, the Honda Pioneer has plenty of power and can get ony trails where my truck simply won't fit. And I've got several wedges. I was hoping someone had something that was just..."oh man I gotta have that!"

    I'm cutting up DTOTG, and STD trees. Not doing any major felling. This winter has provided more than enough trees on the ground.

    Plus, there's this little thing called my wife. Shed have a cow if I came home with a $1000 saw.

    And that Polar trailer hauls some serious wood. Especially if I have SXS bed loaded.

    Timberline chain sharpener. I haven't taken a chain to the dealer since I got mine. Brings the chain back to cutting like new every time.

    That would be the hookeroon. I never thought it would be as useful and back saving as it is. I'm kicking myself for not getting one years ago.

    My current model: Peavey Mfg 36" Hookeroon (Hume Pickeroon)

    Yep hookeroon. Simple but awesome tool I wish I had prior to 2012. Easily cut/spit and stacked close to 100 cords growing up and never had one. My neighbor let me borrow his last year for a weekend that I had split 2 cords and at the end I had very little back pain. But then again 30 years ago when doing this for my parents I don't remember any back pain. Nice to be young!

    It rips enough for me.

    Plus, the whole wife thing. She'd kick my @$$ if I came home with a $600 saw.

    You gonna let me crash your couch when I buy a bigger saw?

    I garner the same response when I come home with a new firearm, ammo, or a new stove! I'm running out of excuses to justify like: it was the last one, this one is better, I got an awesome deal, And my personal favorite...playing dumb.
