I recently used this splitting wedge to break up a tough stump. The striking head did show some deformation after being driven with an 8lb sledge. I don't consider this a major flaw because I'd rather have wear on the wedge than the sledge. Overall it performed well.
A wedge of lettuce it is not. This wedge is solid and just what I need to assist in taking down a couple of sickly trees.
I never received the item. Called customer service and am still awaiting refund. I will continue to shop here as this is the first issue I have encountered.
Update of a month later. Still have not received my refund for the item that never showed up. Questioning whether they do what they say and am leary about any more purchases
I got this because my chain saw would get stock on larger trees. I just cut into the tree part way then pound this into the cut and it will not jam any more.
