Pharking genius! What’s the best size, bros? I have rock hard Red oak splits and that stuff can be hard as nails. Twists and knots and few perpendicular ends compound the problem. No room for a gas splitter. A maul, wedges, steel toe boots and safety glasses is the norm...

Thanks

Twists and knots? You better have a big mallet. In my experience the splitter does not do well except on straight grain logs/splits.

You are going to want a hydraulic splitter for that. Harbor Freight has affordable hand pump ones on sale from time to time.

Agreed, often times it splits short at the knot. I keep those logs for the fireplace and run the straight ones thru the “Cracker”.

Did you secure it to something? When I first got mine I just set it on a stump I used for maul splitting. Wasnt that excited about it after a couple trial runs. When I run a few lag bolts through it and properly secured it to the stump, it was a night and day difference, now it's a dream to use, I love it.
