Funny, I have the same block splitter and never use it, what is the thickness of the block you're splitting.

The block in the video is versa-lok. The dimensions are 6" tall, 12" deep and 16" wide. May I ask why you never use it? Are the blocks you split too big? It works great for caps and pavers too.

I just usually cut them or hand split, I guess its kinda pain in the butt draggin it around. I bought that thing in 1997 for a big job with a huge amount of caps to split, and it sat idle since then.

Right on, I hate moving the thing as well. I welded a steel rod to it and then added some tires from the hardware store - made moving it much better. Nothing wrong with hand splitting.
By the way, the work on your site looks great!
