How do you go about splitting the stakes? Have you got a log splitter that has a long enough stroke? Do you think a cone splitter on a digger would be able to do a tidy enough job of it? I usually buy in split chestnut from Dorset way- but there can be a long wait and wonder if there is any merit in splitting your own...

We've got an old posch with twin rams - one pushes, one pulls in so it's double its own length and will do 7ft. It must be about 20 years old and only 8ton but does the job and much cheaper than buying a new full length one.


I would think it's a bit too fidly with a cone splitter but I haven't used one.
