    I picked this up last night. I found it on CL. It's a 2012 and they used it 4 times, I paid $700. It's gonna really speed up my processing, although I did enjoy swinging the Fiskars......

    If you have the ability to zoom in on the pic you will see a huge safety issue, let's see who can find it!

    You got a great deal! I and many others like this splitter very much. I paid $949 new this spring, but it was a hassle involving returning the first one. It was a previous return, but factory serviced, and not quite right yet. Gave me a new one at the same price.

    I'm firmly in the vertical camp when it comes to splitting any more than a few minutes worth of wood, but usually sit on a round. Its a good feeling to split your seat at the end of it all.:rolleyes:

    Maybe someone will let me try their milk crate someday?

    Good score!

    Too bad they wouldn't throw in a pin to lock the coupler. ;)

    There is a much bigger problem, but it's hard to see.

    You mean the ball mount isn't rusted permanently in place? :p You wouldn't need to pin it in then!

    A lot of guys around here that leave the ball mount in the receiver year-round find it rather difficult when they finally need to do so. <>

    Wow Jack. You could sell that and make a few bucks if you wanted to.

    Milk crates are cheap! ;lol

    Man - I was way off. I was going to guess the zip tie still attached to the steel hydraulic line.

    Nice score on the splitter.

    Ha. That zip tie is still on my splitter. I keep thinking I'll cut it off someday but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Your thoughts many times will be "What took me so long to get a hyd. splitter ? "

    Nice addition to your wood processing tools :)
