Sure Beats a Splitting Maul

Hey it's Brock here with Rock Hill Farm And today I'm going to split this big Log up into firewood The tool I'm going to use is an inverted Skid steer log splitter from Wolf Ridge Now when I showed this attachment before I got a lot of negative comments about It and it felt like people weren't Understanding what I see as the ideal Use for it it's generally with a large Diameter log like this It's really hard to manage for someone Like me who has a homeowner grade log Splitter I don't have a log lift on this And When you've got 24 to 36 inch diameter Rounds or even bigger they're really Hard to manage I end up doing it with a Splitting Model A lot of times and that Is very slow and labor intensive and Especially if you're working out in the Elements whether that's the heat of Summer or when it's freezing cold in the Winter so I'm gonna go grab a chainsaw I'm going to get that splitter Attachment put on the skid loader and I'll be right back and I'll show you how I think that attachment can fit into Your firewood process Foreign [Music] [Music] Foreign [Music]

[Applause] [Music] Foreign [Music] [Applause] What's up Foreign [Music] [Music] Laughs [Music] Foreign [Music] Thank you [Music] I had a little bit of a camera problem That prevented me from getting good Shots of this first section of splitting But I did get better footage here in a Minute While you're watching this I wanted to Mention that I've got another video on This splitting attachment that shows More about the build quality and the Fact that you have options for a longer Stroke and a six-way or even a 12-way Wedge that can go on the end whereas I'm Just using a short stroke with a Four-way wedge Foreign [Music] [Music] [Music] Foreign

Well good news and bad news on that that Worked really well I thought it was a Good Real life demonstration of when you Might use this on the type of log and How long it would take and I got done And my primary camera was not turned on So we'll see if I have any footage in The secondary camera But I've got some more rounds up there We'll go up there and we'll get some Good shots of actually running this and Split some rounds then I'll tell you my Thoughts on who this who the customer For this product is because every Product is not for every customer Foreign [Music] [Music] Thank you [Music] [Music] Foreign [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] Foreign [Music] [Music] [Music] Foreign [Music] [Music]

Well hopefully between what I did down There with the big log and these rounds Here you've got a good feel for the Product and how it operates I've seen several companies come out With these inverted skid steer log Splitters And if I was looking at one I would Definitely recommend Wolf Ridge It is a local company it's family owned When you deal with them you're often Talking to the owner It's a great build quality it's great Design I like everything about it now Let's talk who is this product for So I've got thousands of comments on my Other videos about this and a lot of People are making the comment that it's Too slow Well It is too slow if you're using it as Your primary splitting tool if you split 30 cords a year With this only then that's slow you want To take big rounds though And compare it to any other way to deal With big rounds this is fast I mean there may be guys out there have Been swinging a splitting ball for 30 Years and they're fast too but that's Pretty quick and it's low output and if You have a lot of other firewood to Split I'd rather save my energy and not Use it all up on swinging a mole now if

You want to order one of these go to they'll take good care of You tell them you saw it on Rock Hill Farms and that would help me out so I Appreciate you taking time to watch the Video I'll put links on the screen to a Couple more of our videos and I'll see You next time
