I am looking into buying a good log splitter, but I don't need anything industrial. 8-12 cords of hard wood a year maybe. I am looking for opinions on the yardmax machines and opinions on the half beam as well. I find good prices on them and online reviews seem pretty good for quality in the range I am looking for. I know the 25 ton will be plenty for me. I like the size/ weight of the half beam but have never used one.
