I hook it to my hitch and pulled it to where all my wood is . I cut about two cords worth of logs . Put it in the vehicle position , fired it up and BAM , a thing of beauty ! The biggest , narliest , knottiest , heaviest and 35" in diameter . , Hit the split lever , and it did not even slow in RPM's ! The 25" high , 35" in diameter log exploded into half ! I love it , bad to the bone . I will be warm and toasty this winter , Brang it on !
