The bucket’s versatility and features allow it to be used not only for carrying and dumping materials, it can also scrape and flatten out gravel or dirt for example since it can be lowered right level with the ground (making it easy to sweep or rake into as well).

Bring your equipment with you in one trip – saving you time and effort. The optional auxiliary hitch is removable so you can quickly configure your bucket for the job at hand. Bring your tools too – the optional bolt-on upright tool holder is the perfect spot for you to carry your rake, shovel, poles or rods and other tools too, instead of just throwing them loosely into the bucket where they can fall out.

The 3-POINT HITCH BUCKET is designed to be used alone or in conjunction with front end loaders to increase capacity by adding more volume, and when fitted with the various options available it becomes even more useful, especially when you pair it with other machinery, such as a log splitter or wood chipper that you can tow behind it.  Simply split your firewood and throw and pile it right into the bucket; or chip your tree branches and blow the chips right into the bucket saving you time and effort!

LEARN THE RIGHT WAY TO STACK FIREWOOD

…the hard part is over. You’ve cut down the trees and split the resulting wood. Now it’s time to stack all those pieces in an orderly, efficient, attractive way so you’ll have easy access to the wood that’ll keep you warm all winter long.

“…well-stacked wood is attractive, but its real virtue is that it will be dry by the time you need it. Seasoned wood burns efficiently, doesn’t require constant attention to stay lit, and creates less pollution in the form of smoke (unburned wood vapor).  There are a number of stacking strategies that put the combustion odds in your favor …”  ..read the FULL ARTICLE: The Right Way to Stack Firewoodby Roy Berendsohn at Popular Mechanics Magazine

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CUTTING AND SPLITTING FIREWOOD

Check out Popular Mechanics article “The Ultimate Guide to Cutting and Splitting Firewood” from some great insight into how to cut and prepare your firewood.

“…from felled tree to kindling, how to safely turn fresh wood into wood heat.”

Cutting Firewood

“…heating with wood is a study in stubborn self-sufficiency. It’s hard work, but as with growing vegetables, it’s rewarding. It’s also a study in efficiency or inefficiency. Looked at as industrial engineering, the goal is to turn a standing tree into heat as efficiently as possible. You shouldn’t take the easy way out and convince yourself that cutting and burning firewood is just a lifestyle choice that’s all frost-covered mornings and flannel shirts. Efficiency should elbow its way into that cozy scene. In fact, it has to. I weighed this thought recently as I sat on the tailgate of my truck.” READ MORE

.
Now that you’ve got the tree down and logs cut and ready for splitting, split your logs the safe-and-easy way – with the Split-Fire 2-Way Log Splitter.  Ergonomic to use, it also doubles your productivity by splitting your firewood on both the forward-and-reverse stroke, while eliminating the risks associated with splitting firewood with the traditional axe.

THE BEST LOG SPLITTER ON THE MARKET

We really value our customer’s feedback, and testimonials regarding their experience with our 2-Way Log Splitter, and We Thank Them for it.

After-all, it’s for that very reason we invented and perfected the best log splitter on the market – the original log splitter to double-your-productivity with a 2-Way Splitting action, while keeping you safe!

“..with either the two-way knife or four way-wedge the 3455 easily cut through 15 cords of red & bur oak this season and some pieces were pretty gnarly. The unit is completely solid and stable under any load. The 3455 is everything as advertised, and I cannot overstate the value I found in the two-way cutting. I am very pleased with this unit and its performance and I believe you just can’t do better.”
~ Bob Summerville, West Nipissing, Ontario, Canada

 

“…I purchased a 3203 recently and had to call Split-Fire to tell them how impressed I was with the customer service I received! As you can expect we don’t split a lot of wood in south Alabama but I can assure you for those that do I’m doing it better with more production than the rest! I’ve purchased 100’s of pieces of assorted equipment in my career and seldom do we experience this degree of “truth in advertising”. It exceeded our expectations both in simplicity and performance! We got a little carried away and now hoping for an extended winter in south Alabama as I’ve got enough firewood for another couple of months.”
~ Gary Cox, Alabama, United States

 

“…quality, longevity and efficiency, were the highest priorities driving my decision.  Most splitters were quickly eliminated from my consideration due to poor construction, and inferior components.  There were a handful of brands that I considered to be of quality construction utilizing top-shelf components.  Split-Fire won my business for the following reasons: purchasing a Split-Fire wood splitter is a substantial investment; however, when longevity, reliability, efficiency, fuel cost, maintenance, and operator comfort / fatigue are considered, Split-Fire brings value to your dollars.”
~ Jim Scott, Townsend, Montana, United States

Jim Scott and his Split-Fire 2-Way Log Splitter with Optional Log Lifter.

 

“…we have purchased three 3255 log splitters. Being able to split on both strokes is a great selling feature because it’s easy to tell people that production is doubled.  The Split-Fire is a great revenue builder for our [rental] business – people keep coming back for the red log splitters!”
~ Brian Grant, Grants Rentals, Bridgewater, MA

 

“…this is the best splitter I have ever seen or used.  Delivery was faster than Amazon.  Split-Fire 4490 Gas Powered Log Splitter with Custom Options.”
~ Richard Evans, Smithers, British Columbia, Canada

 

“…I’ve used the Split-Fire for a total of about 4 days now and have completed splitting about 5 full cords of wood.  Total time spent was perhaps 12 hours.  It’s an extremely well-built machine, and handled all my wood, even the gnarly stuff, with ease.  It’s also extremely fast, and the hydraulic lift was great for handling those 2+ diameter pieces.  Now if it would only pick up and stack the wood…”
~ Ken Ketcham, Michigan, Illinois, United States
