    I have a 22 ton vertical/horizontal from TSC. Works good.

    Lots of the neighbours around here have log splitters.

    I myself have been trying to keep in shape by using the axe and wedge if needed.

    I have seen the ultimate Splitter.

    It splits wood on the forward cycle of the piston and splits again on the reverse cycle of the piston. You get 2 splits for every operation. 2 times faster than conventional splitters. I did not get a name of the manufacturer.

    Just bought a new one at Lowe's in Springfield- $1,200 (after the tax).
    26 Ton, horizontal/vertical. Been splitting 40" rounds of beech, lots of oak, hickory, maple, some elm.

    Great machine.

    26Ton, Wow that is a lot of power, you must be able to split anything with that.
