Planning ahead and buying wood in spring is so much easier and far, far cheaper than doing it in the fall. The guy that sold me the 5 cord for $200 actually had another 5 cords of wood with about 3-4 of it split. I will probably be able to get at least half of it off of him. Just had a guy deliver 2 cords of rounds for $110 (it was suppose to be $150...I'm not complaining). He will be calling me next week to let me know what else he has available. Now I just have to get over to the tree cutter that is giving away two cords of round. Hopefully I will get there this weekend. It's not as good as free wood, but I'll take cheap wood over wood that costs $200 a cord any day. Now, on to splitting. Most of the wood I have acquired I can tax an ax to, but I have a few round that are rather large so I was thinking of renting a splitter at some point. I saw a thread on here about someone renting a splitter for $60 a day. Is that about right? Can I expect to pay more depending on my area? What should I look for in a splitter when I rent one?
