    I believe that's about 10lbs. I'd love to give these a try but I don't think they are available in the states yet.

    As far as I can tell those bigger fiskars aren't available here at the moment. There is another company called Halder making some pretty interesting splitters that use polymers.

    They have a distributor in Wisconsin. I ordered the larger one for 177$. It's 9lbs overall I believe, should arrive this week.

    Oops. My intrigue just turned flaccid......

    WOW!!!!! $177... No Thanks. It better split my wood and fetch my beers.... I would have just bought a X27 and saved the rest for a Hyd Splitter..

    Looks nice. But I dont think all that technology can help out that much. You still have to swing it. Swinging it "Correctly" is half the battle.

    Yeah I have a bad case of splitter addiction disorder, this will be my ninth manual splitter. I figure it's cheap compared to those guys with "chainsaw addiction disorder".
    Concerning the X27; I haven't been overly impressed with mine. I think the new head design was a step backwards, they should have just made a 36in version of the SSA.

    I had wondered when Fiskars was going to get some mauls out??? The Halder company has some interesting stuff there too. I was dead set on my 20+yr. old maul, proved, & broken in. Often times the newer fiberglass maul handles feel slick and transmit vibration that I do not prefer. Fiskars and the Halder company seem to have a much better fit and finish, although high tech looking...

    Currently the "heavy artillery" in my line up is a 20+ year old 8lb maul handled with 36in Hickory. I too like the dampening effect that wood has which is why I'm more excited about the Halder than I am about the Fiskars. Not only does the Halder use a hickory handle but it looks like the head connects to the housing via a polymer cylinder. This should reduce vibration even more.

    Do you have pics of some of your artillery? Always love it when people post pics of there tools. I love any pics. 9 manuals (mauls/axes) is a lot. I got an old maul, the X27, 3 wegdes, 2 sledges, 3 hatchet, and a "Woodsman tool" (kinda like a hatchet/machete),. Maybe I will run out and take a pic of it here in a bit. Chainsaws are expensive. Looking to add another BIG cc Husqvarna to my line-up...... Then there is the 21 ton MTD. Whole other ball game there.....

    $177? Are they joking? :lol: :lol: No damn way.This works for me,on the tougher stuff that just makes the X25 & my 5lb Plumb double bit either bounce off or get stuck.31 yrs old now,18+ pounds total weight with newer 1/4" thick wall pipe handle.It was so snug fitting I had to drive it down on original round bar handle with 12lb sledge,still threw a bead around the joint though.

    Just glad I dont have to swing it as often as when younger....

    I have been having great results with my Fiskars Pro Splitting Axe. The one with the 28" handle and 2 1/4 lb head. It is almost as effective as the bigger 4 1/4 lb Super Splitting Axe, and I can swing it for hours and feel fine the next day. These precision tools don't have to be heavy, you just have know how and where to swing them. I don't think I would even be able to properly swing my old 6 lb. long handled maul any more. Those big ones sure do look impressive, but neither will be on my wish list.

    Here's most of my arsenal including some ancillary devices.

    I've got a longer True Temper out on loan and a De Wit splitting axe that had to be sent back for a replacement (it arrived with a loose handle).

    That's good to hear, I've been thinking about snatching one of these up since I think they are out of production. What type of wood are you splitting with it, how long are the rounds?

    I have the same monster maul with the original handle. how the heck did you hurt the original handle? I love that thing, ashamed to say I do not use it as much, but it sure comes in handy. I broke my hand last week working on my Bobcat and it has put a real damper on my golf and wood processing, my two passions. My drinking hand is still good.

    Quite any arsenal there, you might say overkill. But I feel your passion.

    Trailmaker, tell me about the GRANSFORS do you like it? I love the feel but the dealer will not let me actually hit wood with it... I would have bought one years ago if they made a 8-9 pounder. I believe my next purchase will be an x27 unless the mauls come available soon. X46 nice!

    Trailmaker, do you like that "bullet" wedge better than a V wedge? Im going to order this maul and was going to try one of those too.
    Looks like you have the maul Im ordering.

    The Gransfors is excellent. It arrived razor sharp and I keep it that way which means good penetration. It has a pretty wide head that really pops wood apart and the handle feels good and really dampens vibration. It feels heavy duty compared to the Fiskars but it's lighter than the old school 8 pounder.

    Holy $hit...... Great looking Rigs you got. Why dont you put anything in your "Signature". Let people know what you have! I mainly use my Hyd. Splitter, not my Fiskars. Your "Signature", is kinda like "Braggin Rights". I got this... Oh Yeah..... I got THIS! Another thing it helps with is when you have a problem. If you say. "I cant get a good burn". But no-one knows what kind of stove you have.... It does no good to try and help... You may have an old FISHER Papa Bear and We think you have an New EPA Rig.... Just sayin, it helps to put it out there (what you got)

    I do prefer the bullet wedge over the v wedge shown, although I have a v wedge not pictured that is very good. It is made by Estwing.


    I haven't used that 12lb red, Truper maul very much to be honest. It seemed to transmit too much vibration and shock, and since I love splitting I don't want to wear my body out too soon. I'm going to give it another try since they seem to have a cult following.

    The maul on the far right in my picture is an 8lb head I found in a barn re-handled with cheap hardware hickory. It can bust up just about any round and is very easy on the joints.
