Default Took a 4hour drive !

About six weeks ago , I bought a new log splitter . DR 22ton verticals and horizontal splitting settings . They had an after winter sale so I saved $500 bucks .

I drove to "Con-Way" freight company . I was expecting a six hundred lbs. wooden creat . When they brought it out they were impressed with the packing .
About a one hundred lbs. heavy gauge steel wrap around frame with about a hundred nuts and bolts holding it all together .

If what's inside is as well built as the packing , I got one heck of a splitter . Before I start to open it , going to take a picture of before I start to open it .
With my impact wrench and sockets , it should be a three hour job just getting it open .
Can't weight to see what's in side ! words to the wise , you better have a lot of mechanic tools and some mechanical savvy ! Major assembly required . Oh boy , a new toy !

Can't wait to see the splitter.

Sweet baby Jesus!
When it's all out of the box, you can line that frame and use it as a stock tank!

I would have to pay someone to get that out of the box and set up for me. In my younger days I would have tackled that myself but not anymore.

I would think most should do exactly that Winds ! you know me though , Dango , anything is possible , no problems just solutions ! Carls an old timer and has built many splitters + I'm not half bad with mechanical stuff . other than the weight , it's pretty cut and dry , just the weight is a problem , Carl , problem solved !

I want to see a video of it working.

Might have been cheaper just to have Carl chop your wood for you. LOL
