    A foot pedal makes sense, though I’ll bet most of us would be exhausted by the end of the day anyway from just lugging the wood. A few years back I rented a log splitter for a day to split a couple cords worth of free wood from a couple giant oaks trees damaged in a storm. I had them taken down in a controlled manner before they fell down in an uncontrolled manner. My son and I were definitely exhausted just from putting the wood onto the splitter all day long and then tossing the pieces into a pile.

    Oh ya well moving the wood is a factor. One aspect of this splitter is that you must lift the log pretty high onto the table. Large diameter logs will be difficult to handle. Ive seen all manner of automated wood splitting operations, this one is pretty cool:
