Sawguy21, I have a similar splitter called Super Split which works with the same principle.  My son and I used it for an hour or so this weekend, he offered to help me with the fire wood pile so I put him to work handing me pieces to split.  8)

We split over a cord of wood on about a quart of fuel, half of the tank volume anyway.  By the time he can hand me a piece turn around and get another the first one is split, if it only needs to be split into two pieces.

There is no way I could split that fast with a maul or axe.  Even using it alone it is so much faster and far less stress on these 50+ year old elbows. :)

I have the 15lb red maul and I love the thing.  I know it isn't the kind of thing you want to be splitting cords of wood with, but for someone like me, with just my own personal fireplace needs, it is absolutely all I need.

I am all to familiar with the 15 pound red maul.  I just recently got one from Baileys.  When it arrived, the poor UPS could barely move the box.  I thought "What kind of a cargo deliverer is he".  After he left, I picked up the box and nearly fell over.  When I opened it, there were 4 mauls in the box.  I called them and got it all squared away--they sent me a return UPS ticket for the box with the other 3--I took it to a drop off site, the poor man would have broken to tears if he had to take that box back himself!  I love that mega maul--works great and cheap.
