"I bought this set after hubby broke the head off the last axe. Now we have all we need to split our logs and make kindling without getting out the chainsaw and the electric log splitter. This means we can just do a bit at a time rather than it being a major job. I'm looking forward to wacking the grenade - we just need some more wood now!"
"another fantastic top quality products by ScrewFix just what we are getting used to from quality products to quality customer services, just I wish they provide Broadband & mobile phone services too! there team are on fire...just purchased the Roughneck Log Splitter Set 3 Pieces this is a must have kit in your shed even if you don't have logs to split/cut. With 99 Year Manufacturer's Guarantee how can you fault this!! you can pass it on to your kids "when over 18" I've used the Maul to split large cedar wood logs freshly cut! and was I amazed or what with the performance and how easy the job turned out to be pleasure and enjoy cutting wood with minimal effort & control! I've used to use my granddad's axe, I still use it for smaller cuts but not exaggerating 60cm diameter logs can be split/chipped easily and when faced with a knot time to get the wood grenade easy to drive through and always finished the jobs nicely, on top the little axe ideal for kindling! enjoy, I've got 2 tonnes of logs to clear by the end of the year, this is my little exercise for keeping fit over xmas! happy logging & merry xmas & happy new year to u all :-)"
"Have used a felling axe for log splitting for a number of years. Finally got around to getting the right tool for the job. This fits the bill perfectly. Well weighted, comfortable to use and impressive results. Have yet to use the 'grenade' but have a few nasty stumps that will test that next weekend!"
"We recently had two large trees felled in our garden, and were looking for a log splitter, when we came across the set at Screwfix we had no hesitation in making a purchase, as the set was exceptionally good value for money and came with a 99 year manufacturer guarantee!"
"I bought this set to split and season fresh logs for my wood burner. The fibre glass shaft gives reliability and strength against any glancing. The heads are sharp and sturdy. The manufacturing quality is second to none and they feel balanced and capable when being used. The maul is particularly good at splitting nuisance knotty woods. The log grenade again is perfectly capable to the task and you know that with the product guarantee that their confidence assures quality"
"Very good value compared to buying the components separately. Performance obviously depends on how well you can swing the maul, but even I had no trouble in splitting logs. Also cheaper than the powered log splitter and better exercise!"
"An excellent set of kit for managing the splitting of logs and chopping of kindling. We cook on a wood burning range and primary heating is a log burning stove, so need to process plenty of logs per winter - and this set makes easy work of it. If the maul won't go straight through it, the grenade will, no matter how twisted the grain."
"Having used an axe to split logs I was unsure whether these would just be other tools which would get a bit of use here and there. I was wrong! The maul makes light work of decent thickness and diameter logs and for the hard and stubborn logs, or even log branches, the grenade really does blow them open. It is very difficult if not impossible to get stuck and has already split so hefty logs. Much cheaper in the set and the price is well worth it for the maul and splitter alone! If you are not sure about buying a grenade or a regular wedge, forget the wedge and get the grenade!"
"I have had a wood burner for 12 years plus and used my normal axe from my joiners tool box, Decided to go for this set and find it effortless, splits logs with ease. 12 wasted years splitting with the wrong axe."
"This is a great value set and the splitting Maul is fantastic. It makes splitting log effortless and is very comfortable to handle. The splitting grenade is good for longer logs and the sledge head on the back of the maul works well. I only gave it 3 stars on reliability as I've only just bought it."
