I am using it to take out tree roots--the weight is good and easy to handle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeigeNapkin Just what I needed!
This was the best log splitter I could find. It is light enough that an average adult can swing it but not easy to generate the force needed to cut through a full round log on the first swing. The handle seems to be of a very high-quality. The manufacturer does not recommend striking the back of the splitter with another tool when It gets stuck in the log. Good luck with that. Not inexpensive, but a good product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by woodsman85 Stick with a traditional wood handle.
I'll start off by saying this tool does what it's supposed to do; it splits logs. The fiberglass handle holds up to the impact incurred by splitting just fine, and the head stays relatively sharp given the hybrid axe-maul design. However, the rubberized areas of the splitter are poorly thought out and designed. Within 10 rounds, the rubber beneath the head had completely split. I understand that maybe the product is intended to split rounds with a relatively small diameter, up to 8 inches or so, but even so it would require splitting the logs only at the sides, rather than the center, making the splitting process much more drawn out and time consuming. Save your $$ and invest in a wood handled maul to split your logs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DSY2016 Very good weight to power ratio for splitting word
Easy to swing for me. Could be heavy for smaller or people with bad backs. Helps split the wood with some work. Good value for what I needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Throbbicus Love at first chop
When winter comes, the only heat we have comes from a wood-stove in the basement. So we do a lot of chopping. A *lot* of chopping. I've used wedges and sledges, a splitting maul, axes... This thing is, hands-down, the best log-splitter I've ever used. It won't do much for freshly cut green wood or wet wood, but other than that, this splitter will chop firewood faster than you would believe. It's half the weight of my maul, and does twice the work. I wouldn't use anything else.

Lightweight but very effective. Can use to split everything but super thick logs. Great complement to my Wedges and sledgehammer.
