    huskee 22 ton log splitter

    well I finally broke down and bought one. I have done a tone of research and basically found if you don't want to spend about 4k or more then the absolute best bang for your dollar the huskee 22 ton log splitter. it will do horizontal and vertical splitting which is great for the big chunks. Another great thing about this splitter is they make a 4 way wedge for it. cuts a lot of your work down. I have had it for 2 days so far and am super impressed. I have already split about 2 cords of wood with it. some super knotty ash, mulberry, and even some oasage orange. also some super green sycamore. it busts right through like nothing. it will split logs up to 24 inches long and I don't think there is a limit to the width lol. if you heat your house with wood and have a lot that needs split up this is a great option. I'll post up some youtube videos that others have made on it, just to show the stuff this monster can split. one you you high speed moderators or internet folks embed these for me please. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I click share, embed and then copy the link but it doesn't freaking work lol.

    I know it's not gun related but I figure there is probably some folks out there looking for a good splitter.

    Log splitters are the way to go! I help my FIL and once you get in a rythem, you can really knock out some wood. I think he ended up putting a key start on his, cause he was sick off pulling the rope.

    I did the same research two years ago but ended up buying a Timberwolf TR-1. Doesn't have as much raw power but it has a fast cycle and a 4 head wedge.
    Too old for this, I'm getting.

    leadeye I looked at them but couldn't find a local dealer. the huskee splitters are made by speedco and they have 4 head wedges also. I got one for mine and it's great for the big rounds. the timberwolf's have some serious power. I saw the guy split that log sideways lol.

    You're right, I had to go to Columbus Ohio to buy mine. I liked the high cyclic rate and the easy change 4 wedge head. I break my wood up into pieces about the size of my fore arm. We have heated the new house very comfortably for two winters, only turning the furnace on to test it.

    Yeah I wouldn't mind something with a little faster cyclic rate but just couldn't justify the price for like a speedpro. I tried to buy one off craigslist but dude wouldn't respond. The one good thing for me is that I cut most my wood at 16 inches and then just don't take the wedge back all the way. with the 4 wedge head on mine it's doing great and is much easier than swinging the maul lol. this was my first winter and it did great though it wasn't super cold. if I could get my wife to throw some wood on the fire in the morning we would have never used the heat lol.

    Log splitters sure do make heating your home a lot easier. Although my neighbor hired some kids to split up a boat load of wood this winter to stock pile it. They used my splitter, his saws & tractor to pull tops out to the cutting spot...I just had to buy the splitter and that has been paid for over the past 3 winters that has the electric heater hardly runs.

    Enjoy!

    I cut my brothers index finger off with a log splitter 25 years ago.

    We need genetically-modified wolves that could sniff out and eat idiots.
