 Anybody ever used a Stickler

I tried splitting some of the new cottonwood and ended up saying "screw that!" ............and it turns out you can.

Any experience with this gizmo out there?

I have used the pointed "wedges" for use with a hammer before, but this looks like a good idea. I watched their video and it seems fast enough that I would be thinking about a conveyor to get the wood moved easily rather than having to get up.

 Anybody ever used a Stickler

Finally got it to finish downloading. It looks like it works smooth enough in the video. I have a big question with repect to safety and what would happen if the log created enough resistance to spin around and knock the truck off the jacks or hit the operator. A vehicle with a limited slip differential would have to have both rear wheels jacked up. Hey...... you could run dual Sticklers! Wink yeah right If you jacked up only one side of the axle with an open differential, I am not sure if the spider gears were designed to operate in that manner for extended periods of time. Looks like a neat idea though. If it works as good as in the video on stubborn stuff, not a bad log splitter for under $300.

I have a 512K bidirectional T1 data line coming into my office. I use a regular modem at home.

My computer is also set up for video editing, so when I click on the movie icon, I start getting video in about ten seconds and it runs straight off the data stream.

I agree about the limited slip diff. That might be a problem. But regular open differentials should be able to operate this way for an extended period. The load is very low and the engine is really idling.

The only time that I have ever had a problem with the open diffs wearing out is in the Baja races where we sometimes run for an extended period with a flat tire. Two or three hours of running with good engine power is enough to trash the gears, but I really don't think that the stickler would be a problem.

Back in the 1960s, we used a setup for butchering that used an old car as a power source for the saws, sausage grinders and other equipment. The car chassis was blocked and a wheel without a tire was used to drive a long V belt to the butchering shed. This is similar to the "Old Thresher's" use of flat belts to power equipment.

I am going to call the manufacturer this morning and ask the limited slip question and the rear pto question that you all are thinking out there.

I'll let you know what I learn.

I didn't bother to download the video due to slow internet connection, but if I was the guy in the picture sitting and feeding logs to the stickler my back would be killing me!

Randy,
I don't think that you could run duals since you would have to have one threaded RH and the other threaded LH. I know that you were joking, but it make me think that you might have to plan how you do this.

In the video, they were using the RH wheel which would drive the RH screw threads of the Stickler with the left wheel blocked and the transmission in L. I guess that you could run on the left side if you used the truck in R, but I don't know if the drivetrain is as durable in R as it is in forward gearing.

I guess that if you used it in R, you would be splitting wood and taking miles off the truck at the same time. Wink yeah right

Mark, I thought you already had a regular powered log splitter? If your current powered log splitter is powered by the dounut eater that swings the sledge hammer; OH YEAH! You need a log splitter! Wink yeah right Been there and done that and after 2 years of splitting wood manually, I bought a log splitter.

I think another issue with the Stickler would be jacking or blocking up the vehicle off the pavement. It looks like they used plywood sheet for shoring in the video. I would also have some questions as to exactly how the limited slip differential would act with the Stickler applying typical resistance. Normally the limited slip unit does not engage unit a given amount of slipage between axles takes place. But then again, I would think that both axles would turn together with little to minimal resistance applied to them by the Stickler. They did not address that in the FAQ section. I still wonder about the wear and tear on the spider gears with an open differential. There may not be much load applied but the differential would see the same use as if you were driving in a tight circle for hours. Normally they are not exposed to operation such as this. In any case if you did develope an differential problem, and it is under warranty, the dealer shop guys do not want to hear you were splitting logs with it. Probably wouldn't believe it anyway. Still is a neat looking idea!
