Is splitting a half cord of Pecan firewood in approx 1 hr a moderate rate on a small hydraulic splitter? I had 8-12" dia "Grade A Select" 14 -16" long logs with no bogging/stalling/pressure relief due to knots etc.. Most were just split in half for seasoning/handling Bang-Bang--Bang---!
A friend mentioned the DR Power "Rapid Fire" and I watched the video below. IMO I would rather be slow and safer than the no return Flywheel geared type force. What happens if it can not split the "#1 Grade A Select Logs"? I would like to hear the opinions of actual/owners/users.
Compared to my past Wedge/Sledge/Splitting Maul (that my body will no longer allow) I Thought I Was Up To Speed! The real relief was knowing my 3 cord capacity is Over Capacity Before The Heat is back (with the green wood on the bottom).
