I split some wood today. Black locust and wild cherry, both dead standing.

Both were NOT easy splitting!

Guido.

Hey Phil,

Nope! If you look at the picture, you will see that the Chopper1, has two levers on the side of the axe.

It will throw wood split 5 to 10 feet on each side.

It's not safe to be to my left or my right, chips will fly!

Guido.

Rustred,

The other 1/2 usually goes right in the wood stack

Wingnut,

That is a pruner saw. Comes in handy cutting splintered ends. It will cut wood too.

When I go to put the flag in, I will take a picture for you.

Made in the U. S. A. TOO!


GUIDO.

You're supposed to do that when it is about 10 degrees out...splits much better!

You have my respect sir. I split and stacked close to a cord yesterday but I used a hydraulic splitter and a loader tractor to move it all. I haven't swung a splitting mall in years, but I deffenetly remember when all I had was a mall or an axe to split with and I always have heated with wood, 4 to 5 cord a year.

Hey Guido. I pulled a muscle in my back three months ago picking up rounds. No fun. I decided to purchase a hookaroon from Council tools. I wanted the 36 inch handled one because of my height. That tool is a amazing. I move rounds with no problem and even smaller (5ft.) logs. Nice wood pile by the way.

I suppose I am a dummy, but all I have ever seen a splitting maul accomplish, in my hands & other hands, is break handles!

JMOR,

That is not a maul. It is a wood chopper,
not much heavier then a splitting axe. Never broke a handle get. May be I am just lucky,

Guido.

ASEguy,

I almost bought one, then I made this.

Works pretty good, I guess about a 30 handle,

Guido.
