I've gone through a lot of old threads regarding the "best" log splitter to get. My budget is $1,500.00 max. I will be using it for my own personal use. I burn about 4 cords a season. Is it the general consensus the 22 ton splitter from Tractor Supply is the best value? I climb for a living and can get all the wood I want and can pick and chose the best pieces, i.e. no nasty crotch pieces etc. Reason I am getting it is the wife is tired of splitting wood.
