We had the Catalpa Tree taken down last month and we have had some business travel since then so haven't gotten to the log splitting until now. While out on the road we ordered this log splitter over the Internet and here it is ready to go.
Our new 7 ton log splitter worked fairly well for these big pieces.
This is good exercise and fun. So far, the weather has been fine for this. I am thankful for the dry weather now and hope we get finished before we have too much rain. We'll get the pieces we haven't split under cover before it gets wet if we don't get it all split first.
Have you done this or if you use firewood, do you get it delivered? We've split the wood from our own trees manually and with a rented log splitter when we took down a huge Oak Tree in the back yard a few years ago. We realized then that the next time we had a similar big project that we would buy our own splitter. Wise decision.
