Bad Tires
I got my splitter and was ready to go. The only thing wrong is the tires are not meant for hauling very far. The tires are too small for this heavy splitter.

I was only driving 45 miles per hour and the tire came apart. Luckily I did not roll it over. I was only going 13 miles to the farm.

I took it to a welding shop and had them put some good tires and wheels on it, and a new axle. That cost another 325.00 dollars, but now I can drag it without fear.
