    This splitter is the ultimate splitter if you make firewood bundles. It has tons of power to get through knots but also makes very precise splits!

    What a machine !! I recently purchased the 17 vs Did not disappoint If it were any faster I’d be missing a toe – Real deal. The folks at Wolfe ridge are great to deal with I can’t speak highly enough about this unit I purchased My neighbors come over and split wood just for the fun of it. They don’t even have a fireplace ?. I tell them have at it – if your contemplating getting one — It’s all that and more !!
