Towed my buddy's 22 Ton 8hp Lumber Jax Wood Splitter to my place to split some wood today. Man....thinkin I'll never swing my old heavy wood maul again!! First time to use one of these & I'm impressed!! In 4-5 hours effortlessly split over 4 cords out of some oak & maples I took down on my property. My Harman will now have enuff food for this winter!
Anyone have some experiences with wood splitters??
I still like to split some with the maul just to take the kinks out, after that I brake out the 35 ton Northern splitter. Mine does not go vertical but sure wades through wood. The one thing I have noticed lately, the 20 inch rounds that I used to pick up on to the splitter got heaver. Have to wedge them into chunks now first. I do believe gravity must be changing.
I run a 22 ton 3 point hitch vertical splitter off my tractors hydraulic remotes for the wood that needs splitting. then for the smaller stuff this does the trick also 3 point hitch but off the pto
I run two wood sheds one for the current year and the other for the following winter. About 14 cord between the two sheds. This September I finished filing the shed for next winter. This winters supply was filled last fall.
I'll start knocking down trees this month thru the winter then sping and summer cut into rounds split buzz and load the shed in autumn
