After about 3 cords of splitting, my 5 month old Tru-Temper "super splitter" head is ready to fly off its pretty fiberglass handle. The epoxy that holds it in place has broken apart and mostly fallen out. A sticker on the tool says is has a "limited liftime warranty". Lowes says its the manufacturer's warranty and I need to contact them. Sent them an e-mail asking if the limited lifetime warranty meant that the tool was warranteed to have a limited liftime or if they would take care of this issue. I'll let you all know. Worked great for splitting but obviously I'm dissapointed. I know I'm a beast of a man (not!) who can destroy the sturdiest equipment easily but really! Meanwhile I bought some epoxy and will try putting it back together. Hickory handles are starting to look better and better.
