I have a Newtown address but also a NJ address. I do not favor one brand over another, nor do i care where it was made. I have a lot of power equipment and getting ready to buy a slightly used log splitter. 4 acre trees and 3 acres of trees in NJ. 27 ton With the Honda motor and a catch for the rounds. Looking forward to using the forum as I retrieve some of my borrowed stuff that (friends) use and dont bring back. I am sure will need attn. hello out there and I apologize in advance for my unqualified advice.
