my neighbor told me a while back i could use his splitter any time i wanted, and i split everything i had by hand that i could, so i decided to take him up on his offer. when i walked down to his house, he pointed out a white oak that had just recently died and told me he was having it cut down and i could have all the wood. he said he would haul it to my house with his front end loader. the tree is big... around 100 feet tall, and looks to be somewhere in the 24" to 26" range down low and is mostly straight. with the splitter he said he never uses it, and didn't say he was giving it to me, but told me i could just keep it at my house. no clue of the details of it other than it has a northern hydraulics sticker with a serial number, and date of 12-87. it has a tecumseh engine with no details on it, but it went through some pretty big red oak, and the nasty stuff in the picture of the splitter. we'll see who all can identify the wood that's below the splitter. btw, why was the firewood hoarders club binned? my guess is it had to do with the shirts.
