Got some wood cut today and took it home to try to split it by hand. Just starting out and dont have a hydro. splitter yet. I did figure out that I need to be in better shape. hh: Got about a truck load cut and about half of it split. I'm lucky though my grandfather had three fence rows cleared out so plenty of wood. The only problem is its all stack up in a huge mangled mess. Think I'll wait until I can round up some buddies to help pull it all apart!
