For splitting logs, I love gravity. And inertia.
I think the electricity sounds good!
i have two large log piles at the waddtage. i propose an electric trav vs inertia Bent log splitting competition. Free beers to the winner.
Beer is even better for splitting logs!
I'm not saying it's faster, unless you have to generate the power.
Running the splitter off a Tesla doesn't count.
Maybe it's fair to count the time going to the gym for equivalent strength training if you use the electric splitter,?
I'm still a big fan of electric splitter vs gas motor splitter.
PS- New England-style IPA?
Bent, I hear ya. I spent a day splitting logs the hard way. But it turns out I have no skills in that regard. My gifts lie elsewhere. Oh, and here's the thing: my log splitter is, like, bright yellow. And when it splits ash, I mean, it splits ash. It literally pretty much just explodes. Very satisfying.
May I sneak over our wood pile when 'Bent isn't looking? This sounds awesome.
but can it split Georgian Bay white pine, oak and maple? The world needs to know.
I dunno, I saw the splitter in action. The catharsis of splitting wood manually just does not compare. #teambent
Maybe if the axe was bright yellow?
Sounds like you'd get the job done in a couple of hours, instead of a season of therapeutic clobbering an hour or two at a time.
I do have to admit that there are a lot of big knotty chunks I had to throw in the bush after they defeated me.
Going back to the 80's most US presidents preferred running for exercise. Except Ronald Reagan, who liked to chop wood. With an axe.
White pine? Are you kidding me? A softwood? Doesn't stand a chance. More gnarly stuff like oak and maple: untested. But this thing has 9 tons of oomph.
Workout: 9 too amrap
9 tons of oomph as many reps as possible
