We have a LOT of wood that needs to be cut up for firewood. We just installed a giant wood eating fireplace (Fireplace Xtraordinaire 44") and I'm having nightmares about chopping off my foot or something in the process of splitting wood for our new fireplace. I'm thinking that a log splitter would be a good investment because we'll be doing forest management on our property for years.
Renting one is about $100/day. They have some at home depot for around $1100, but I don't know what brand they are.
Does anyone have one? Any thoughts? We were thinking about seeing if our neighbor wanted to go in half on it and share the cost and maintenance. He is the kind of guy who takes care of things, otherwise we wouldn't even consider it.
Thanks in advance for your feedback. It is always appreciated!
