Stickler Log Splitter

Have any of you guys used one of these or seen one in action? I am thinking about getting one but I am not sure if it will work with a limited slip differential.

Re: Stickler Log Splitter

I can see that thing killing someone with a log spinning around and flying off like a missile. I'd go with a hydraulic splitter.

I watched this video and almost lost it, and then i read the posts underneath it and was laughing so hard i had tears coming down my face.
Seriously man i could of had 60 24in 16in diameter logs split with my 8 lb maul before he got 2 done. My father is old and he uses a 6 lb maul and he would of had at least 30 logs split before this clown got 2 done.

Re: Stickler Log Splitter

Yeah, his splitting wasn't too impressive. I think it would be useful, though, for bigger stuff. I also think he was operating with is engine too slow. I ordered one so I'll see what It can do. We have a 20 ton hydraulic log splitter bu the engine is blown. We have another used engine that we are going to try to get running on it but never can find the time. In the meantime I am going to give the stickler a try. I may try to see if I can run it off a garden tractor.

Re: Stickler Log Splitter

We'll see. I ordered one and will hopefully get a chance to mess around with it this weekend. I'll post results.

Re: Stickler Log Splitter

thats cool i bet that operation cost some big dollar. What i have a hard time figuring out is why so many of these clowns split such small peices of wood, and why they are so short. They all must have tiny wood stoves or something. I have an indoor wood furnace in my basement and cut all my wood 24 to 28in long and only split stuff bigger then 14in in diameter. If i can fit it thru the wood stove door then it wont ever get split, the more you split the faster it burns up. i only split 10% of my firewood. Though i have a larger stove that alows me to do so. I try to make less work not more.

Re: Stickler Log Splitter

I got the Stickler hooked up yesterday and it worked well. It wasn't real fast but it worked well and with limited physical labor.

As far as the size of the wood, I think a lot of people must use it in smaller wood stoves. I am intending to get a small woodstove for my shack and I think it will only accept logs that are 14" or less.

For a fireplace or outside campfire I use big pieces. I like that the big pieces burn slower/longer.

I do split the small diameter pieces too, though. I split everything at least once so that it will dry and be less likely to rot. Sometimes I have firewood around for several years before I burn it. I have a weird habit of "collecting" firewood. I get attached to it when I split it and ration it unnecesarily.
