I agre on the price, and also that the video looks like he is splitting easy wood, maybe frozen? it looks TOO easy.

I use a maul and save the tough or knotty stuff for an annual one day splitter rental.

Oak splits really nicely when green, unlike pine or fir. After oak is dry it's a bugger.
I agree; oak splits easiest right after you cut the tree. I have tried to split some old dry oak with much difficulty.
