    Thanks for all the replies on my posting of renting or buying a splitter I have decided to buy 1 but which size should I go with? I started the other post because I was able to get a hold of 6-8 cords of large elm but mostly I cut pine where we live and do find the occasional elm or poplar or cottonwood I do mean occasional maybe 1 tree a cutting season the pine I cut is usually no bigger than 12-16". This year I plan on cutting alot of wood to get ahead but after that I backing out to 4 cords a year
    Thanks

    With the wood you describe any splitter with a 4" bore cylinder should get the job done. I mention bore size because it determines maximum tonnage regardless of advertized tonnage.
    Most importantly is find a splitter that has a work height that is comfortible for you.
