    How much was this splitter? What made you buy this over a super split? Is there any major differences between the two versus color?

    Probably identical to a super split. The Amish are known for doing knock offs.

    The amish are like anyone else. It depends on who you work with. Ive been with some scammers and some really good folks over the years.

    I stick to buying furniture from them though lol.

    I would not ever buy anything amish ever ever again.We have a bunch around here and I can tell you they are the biggest friggen pigs there ever were. They move in like locusts and rape the land. They pay crazy amounts of money for nice farms raising property values in the area which in turn raises everyones property taxes. Once they are moved in they destroy all the buildings by gutting them and ripping out all the wiring so there is no electricity in them. They never clean up anything including the inside of the house where they are baking your "amish" made pies and such. There was a group that was doing roofing, and made off like bandits after a huge storm came through. We even fell for it and had them do the roof on our house. I am still finding nails in my yard, and little slivers of flashing tin all over the place that they would just trim off and let fall to the ground. One of my kids cut his foot really bad on one so now they cant even go out and play in the yard without shoes.

    Now after about 10 years of raping the land ripping off all the neighbors, and raising everyones taxes they are clearing out and moving to PA. I say good riddance.

    Yup, and we even bought one of those job site clean up ones for $60 but when you are trying to get green screws, nails, and tin out of green grass it is really hard to get it all. It still doesnt change the fact that I shouldnt have to play clean up crew for the "Amish quality". All they would have had to do it put down tarps to catch all this stuff and just empty them.

    I have no experience with Amish roofers, but if you think they are the only ones that leave a mess you are mistaken.

    Did you get any competing bids?

    Around here the cheap roofer leaves a mess, lots of nails and shingle scraps. People hire him because he comes in between one and several thousand less for a new roof. The savings come directly from the mess he leaves because he doesn't skimp anywhere else.

    My basic point is that you seem to be attacking a product that you have no experience with because you hate the religion of the people who built it, yet you can't claim that your bad experience has anything to do with the religion or the splitter mentioned in the OP.

    You're welcome, I guess. I'm not standing up for the splitter. I just hate a thread getting filled up with trash talk from people who have a lack of experience with the product in question.

    You got any video of you running this splitter?

    How long have you owned one?
