In our More Docktime...Five Important Steps post we mention 'power equipment...the more the better' and most cottages have a fireplace or at least a fire pit. Unless you're built like Paul Bunyan or have kids old enough to 'chore' them into splitting a pile of firewood you might want to check out this deal. Canadian Tire is offering an electric log splitter for half price. Around our cottage we used to pile wood and when it was big enough go rent a splitter for the day. At this price it's a no brainer...
Yardworks 4-Ton Log Splitter $199
- 1¾ HP engine with 4-ton splitting capacity
- Cylinder splits logs up to 20½" (51 cm) in length
- Mobile base for easy positioning
The splitter has a 4.9 out of 5 review with pages positive comments and the listing is here. The sale ends October 6, 2011...all I can say is leave one for me!
