    Sorry folks, been biting at the bit to really get some rounds through this machine but between the never ending rain here in NJ and Bering swamped at the shop, I haven’t had a chance to really get st it, it’s killing me! Tomorrow is the day, supposed to be nice, 74 and partly sunny, I do have a large pile of rounds ready to go.... stay posted......

    Ok, so after twisting wrenches for 11 hours, I came home to my virgin splitter, it’s not raining and I have unlimited rounds cut up, I need to give this beast a go.... I rolled over about a dozen 18 to 24 inch rounds, set the choke and that Honda came to life with one pull, I went from turtle to rabbit and loaded the log lift. I had the 4 way on and I have to say that in less than ten minutes with an unfamiliar machine I had a pretty good amount of wood, this things a beast and the quality is very good, built like a tank and just very easy to use with the valves in good locations, more to come tomorrow..,,, so far I’m in love.... thanks Chris from WR

    First choice was Eastonmade but 24% higher cost could not get through financial admin, or Admiral I sometimes call her.
