Splitting maul/axe

Recommended Posts

i found the little metal splitter to be a waste of time as it needs more effort ( sledge and splitter), and i am wary of fibreglass handles as i've had one shatter on me. i use a 3kg maul with a hickory handle, i think i got it from Wickes about 6yrs ago, cost then about £17..

Bought one of the roughneck mauls couple of years back, one of best mauls I've used although still prefer my roughneck axe is only about 4lb but have had it about 15 years and has split no end of timber :thumbup1:

I have/had the roughneck maul and used it for driving the grenade. The grenade is good but the head broke off. I n my opinion the shaft is too narrow where it goes through the head.

If you get it, go girly with it, not highland games style! I do have a photo of it broken somewhere.

Looking at a lower priced spillting mail/axe to start off with some splitting - before looking at a higher quality tool in a few years time.


Come accross a set from Screwfix (Roughneck Log Splitter Set 3 Pieces | Log Splitters | Screwfix.com) - has anyone used this set before, if so any good or are there better products in a similar price range?


HI BEAN we had a new one here and the head come away from handle mate :lol:thanks jon :thumbup:
