Picked up a Huskee (Speeco) 22 ton splitter this afternoon. Bought from Tractor Supply Co. $999 +tax. Came full of hydro fluid and engine oil and just enough gas to verify operation before I drove it away. I was a little concerned that it was going to be enough splitter for what I've got but I'm satisfied it will work for me. I used it for a little over and hour and fed it the gnarliest stuff I had on the place. Some big ole hunks of Red Oak I'd cut about a year and a half ago that had pretty well laughed at the axe, maul, and wedges. This was all pretty much wood that was destined for the burn pile on the back of the place. It slowed down on a few pieces and there was only one crotch piece that stopped it but I think I can try a different angle and get through it. Pretty much anything I could get under the wedge it split. About the only thing I could think would be an improvement other than a bigger splitter would be a bigger foot and I may add a little to what's there. So far I'm happy with it.
