I really don't know.
I do the Tom Sawyer thing when I need logs split (you know, "Man, do I get a workout splitting logs. You want to try it?")

Jeez dango, logs are way too much work! Those things dont get lighter! Switch to pellets man, 40lbs a day at most on bad days and you get a free garbage bag with each one, its a great deal.

I know you probably got a woodlot and the price is near free other than labor but old beat up bodies dont care about money! Brother, youve had way too many physical challenges to beat yourself up more than you have to. Wood pellets bro. Definitely no more go-devils and wedges, thats not good for you or most folks that dont want to end up prematurely in a wheelchair!

I think the DR Stuff is supposed to be good stuff, if your keeping it covered and burning 15 cord a year it should last a lifetime but you only got one body and yours is screaming help me!

I loved your Sword dance, may you always be able to do that at your will and your bodies!

Over priced.

Get one with common hydraulic fittings and a pump that's common and an engine that's easily found. A lot of these things are proprietary especially dr stuff so your at their unmercifully long shipping times to get an expensive part that's threaded in some weird pattern.

I have personally never owned anything that DR has built but the reason for that is I have talked to people that have....
