I've been having my eyes peeled for months now for a decent good quality used splitter at a fair price. I missed out on a 22T Huskee a few weeks ago, by 20 minutes. Timing is everything when you know roughly what you want and it suddenly appears. I opened up Kijiji early yesterday morning, with the rain & wind pounding outside, just before I was set to plow into doing our income taxes (deadline in 1 week), to see a 5 year old Surge Master (Wallenstein) 6.5hp Honda H/V splitter an hour away from me for half the Home Depot retail price. Just what I was looking for. Taxes got put on the shelf and the call was made. I wanted to hold off a day since it was so miserable out, but the guy was home & it sounded good. I came home pretty wet around the edges but the splitter search is over - retired fellow, looks like he took pretty good care of it, had to give up the wood & his splitting baby since his wife started having allergies to the wood. Not the GX engine, but it purred like a kitty when he fired it up & we ran a few cycles. Pretty pumped the looking is over, and hoping to run it though some stuff later today if it dries up some outside. Double good - just finished taxes & I'm getting back (for the first time in decades) over twice what I paid for the splitter. Maybe I'll just forget about everything else for the day & have a drink or few.
