Let me guess. The deal is buy the splitter and you get a bunch of spare horses to power it at no extra charge? :lol: The one in the video does look like it's able to work...

There are two in the video, on the left near the end. #2 is probably fueling up or snoring.

Loved the auto return and the speed. But it would have been much better with a proper splitting wedge installed, that thing was puny.

My brother has one of those spliters, I'll bet it's at least 40 years old. First thing he did was put a bigger wedge on it. It splits a lot faster than that one but it is 5 HP.

OK, I've developed an upgrade that is 5HP with excellent low end torque... and is compliant with the NE Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. CO2 emissions are down but methane emissions are way up. Avoid the rear end.

Fuel consumption must be pretty high on that 5 hp model. There is a reason the old timers developed the hit 'n miss engine. :)
