    Thanks York I cut my own wood for my outside wood furnace I cut and split 10 to 12 cords a year I’m getting older with a bad back I want something with more bells and whistles to make my wood splitting life easier. I’ve been looking st all of them I like the looks of the Easton better than all the rest.

    I run a 12-22 and have a 4, 6 and box wedge. No issues in 3 years. Amazing communication and experience with owner (Andrew) so I have never had a worry. Machine is built very tough and durable with quality components. Best investment I have ever made. Runs as good now as day 1. Andrew is the son of the owner of Bells so he has wisdom and knowledge of the industry. You will not be disappointed in your investment.

    Which wedge do you use the most?
    Can you compare wedges, and perhaps rate them 1/2/3?
    If you gave up one wedge, which would you get by without?
    Thanks in advance...

    Depends on what your splitting,if all straight grain Ash,i would use the 6 way-but in my case,most of what i get is mean Maple,so i like the 4 way..
