Please share tips on splitting matted/stringy pecan firewood
Please share tips on splitting matted/stringy pecan firewood (as splitting green, seasoned and Etc.). I just found a ton above "My New 12" Dia Limit" and the 12" ate my splitterÃ¢ÂÂs lunch or mine today (due to stringy vs force). Not to mention what my friend has here or took home before processing (from a street over). I will agree with one fellow, "it works best shorter than firewood cuts that are better for BBQ". We have too much for BBQ and would like to split it vs cutting blocks.
My past effort on large, seasoned pecan was to make a 4" deep cut to give wedge & sledge starting leverage and hired a young fellow to split the 8-10" blocks. I asked him to leave blocks for cutting if they d/n split in 2-3 blows. With a 9-12 ton log splitter now, I have to do something different still. Large White Oak and Pecan have caused repairs twice vs 12Ã¢ÂÂ dia hardwoods of all types. loger
