Having gone north of 50 years old, I no longer get the satisfaction I once did out of swinging a splitting maule and have decided to buy a hydraulic log splitter for the cabin. Trouble is, I know nothing about them so I'm hoping there's someone out there in forum land who does. Specifically, it looks like they're available in 22-37 ton capacity and I'm wondering how big is big enough. The wood I need to split is frequently large knotty spruce with and twisted grain and can be a lot of work. With about $1000 difference in price I'd sure like to know what someone has experience with.
