Sure would like a review or two on the All Wood Log Splitter from some owners.
You'll find people on both sides. They look like decent units, but there is a member here that had a bad experience and it was made worse by the owner. There are also folks that use them without issue.
I ended up going with a Kinetic because the investment to get the speed I wanted in a hydraulic was not reasonable. Both have their places... Ive been able to put anything on a 22 ton splitter and get the work done. The trade off is time. Its painfully slow. With the SS, I gained great speed, but I am limited in what I can simply place on the beam. Which is fine with me... and heres why...
I like my splits to be relatively square, or at the minimum have 90 degree edges. I can stack more wood in the firebox that way. With the SS, and often times noodled rounds, its very easy to get 90% of a round to have at least 2 square edges.
