    Found a DR electric splitter to play with last night on Craigslist.
    Though the guy showed me it worked at his house, I couldn’t wait to test it this morning.
    It surprised me what it would do!
    I wanted one to be able to use in the garage with the wood stove going, the tv on some old movie, and a cold drink nearby while I split kindling.
    It doesn’t appear to have a cup holder though. Sigh... I guess I’m just meant to suffer hardship.

    Let’s not tell the missus about this one (#4) for now.

    I had thought about getting an electric splitter since most of the wood i scrounge is easy splitting.
    Too bad about no cup holder. My MS261 came with one. IMG_1609.JPG

    How do you like that grapple bucket on the Kubota? I have been thinking of going that route. Right now I use forks and they work ok but I would think that grapple would be the way to go.

    Or that's the "restrictor plate" to make it more fair for HooskaVarnaaaah. :whistle:

    Coffee is a diuretic, so would that make it run like Chit?

    :rofl: :lol:
