Wetterlings Splitting Maul Frosty Morning

Wetterlings Splitting Maul Frosty Morning

When I walked out this morning to get an armload of firewood and my Wetterlings Splitting Maul was glistening in the sun.

Wood Splitting Area

The picture above shows my wood splitting efforts this fall.  While you see a log splitter in the picture I haven’t used it yet this fall.  I enjoy splitting wood with my Wetterlings Splitting Maul and frankly my body and mind need the exercise.

The wood pile in the lower right is wood that is dry and RTB (Ready to Burn).  The pile behind the splitting tire is for next season.

The mountain at the back of the picture is ground up bark and sawdust.  I run the bark and sawdust through the chipper shredder to use for mulch around the yard.

If you’d like to know more about my Wetterlings Splitting Maul please watch the video below.  I’ve been using the Maul exclusively since I got it.

I'm a chainsaw, chainsaw mill, log splitter, axe and outdoor fanatic. I purchased a my first chainsaw, a Stihl 020, in 1992. I've added a Stihl 036 and Stihl 046 to my collection. I split wood with a Wetterlings Splitting Maul and Ames Super Splitter. When my body's had enough I use a Timberwolf TW-P1 log splitter. I use a Logosol Big Mill basic and Timberjig to mill lumber. I stack firewood in Holzhausen round wood piles.

    1. I don’t think I’d go to twice as good. I’d say 1/3 as good.

      The big advantage of the Wetterlings is it doesn’t get stuck in the log like the Super Splitter does. I like the fact that it’s built from a higher quality steel too.

      If you’re just learning to split wood I would stick with the Super Splitter. If you’ve refined your stroke and are ready for a better maul I’d move up.

What do you think?
