Do you own a block splitter?
Or Do you split block and caps by hand??
i have every tool but a spliter I just barrow one from my whole seller i think they said there's cost around $1600.
I have one that came with the trailer I bought equipped for hardscaping. We don't use it much but its handy when we do.
yes they are expensive, paid 1400 for ours, but when buliding stairs, walls, collums, there's nothing better, its more than paid for itself in time spent and quality of split. and yes we have split by hand before, still do if need be but this accecpst blocks 10" high and 13" long. also great for spliting limestone treads when a rough end to match the face is desired
forgot to say, sometimes it works too well, like with weathered versalock, the side split is too "nice" compared to the weatheard face.
we just take a hammer and make the split end match the factory face.
Could someone post a link on what they think is a great stone splitter (guillitine) I have one but it weighs around 100lbs and is rather clumsy to work with.
wheres the rent option?
I saw cut and use a brush hammer($121) to beat it up. You can get the hammer from bon tools and it works mush better than a regular mason hammer.
We have two of the Probst splitters. We do a lot of combo walls and have one set at 6" and one at 3" so it saves time adjusting every time you change sizes. Wouldn't be without.
