It does get stuck occasionally but the wood is relatively easy to remove. There were some early reports of the maul detaching but i have abused mine and it is still in good shape.



I bought this one about 7yrs ago https://www.amazon.com/Timber-Tuff-T...a-522222970020
Thanks for the objective description of your experience.

Mr. Dan- I haven't a clue. But sometimes I'm easily amused...

I own the kindling cracker and it works great. Went with the smaller one so it is more easily transported. Splitting is much easier now and I use a ballpean hammer. Usually two strikes and it's split.

Not to be shocking...But I don't wear any panties. Is anyone who heats their house with wood sick of hauling firewood yet? I am. I think I'm gonna run out by end of month as cold as it has been here, below average.

Lol, yes this year has sucked for keeping up with firewood. Where I live it’s been almost non-stop with horrible cold for the past month. A couple weeks of -10* and below, few days of -30*’s (ambient temp) sprinkled in with some above 0* days. I don’t heat with wood, but have plenty of friends who do and I’ve cut and stacked more wood this year than when I grew up heating with wood.

I've burned 3 cords and am into final cord. Hoping it lasts long enough to get through this coldest time of winter. Then it's back to burning dinosaur bones. Which are $3.35 per gallon today. Ugh.

We have a wood stove and used firewood for a few years until we discovered EcoBlocks - compressed sawdust no glue or fillers - supplier approx 1 hr from us - sold by 1/4 ton, 1/2 ton or full ton shrink wrapped on pallets like paver bricks

We use approx 2 or 3 ton per winter - stored on our covered front porch and carry in a 5 gallon bucket - use about 20 blocks per day - virtually no ash and only clean stove every two weeks - no mess or bugs either

Much easier than the firewood debacle we dealt with previously by cutting, splitting and stacking our own

Nice. I get 4 cords split and delivered for around 700 bucks. I wonder what 'equivalent' in Ecoblocks would be. I supplement purchased wood with logs I see at roadside after a good storm. Load them into pickup and split in driveway.

The ecoblock place in OH is not too far from my sister in OH. Maybe I'll pick up a half ton next time I go see her, bring the pickup.

I still have plenty of fire wood. I haven't come close to running out since I got the gas well.

Burning treated lumber in a campfire is probably not the best thing to do.
