Pro Splitting Maul

Pro Splitting Maul
A professional-grade splitting maul for splitting large chunks of wood.

Product Description

Whether you’re splitting large wood rounds or driving splitting wedges, the STIHL Pro Splitting Maul is the final word in wood domination. Tough and built to last, the premium American hickory wood handle helps reduce vibration, and the long steel sleeve helps protect the handle in the event of an overstrike. Its unique 5-piece head attachment system is up to 2.5 times stronger than a traditional axe head connection. The head is forged from premium C60 steel and shaped to feature an extra-large striking face for improved splitting performance. And at 6.6 lbs., this wood maul gives each swing a satisfying punch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great go devil Excellent go devil the best I’ve ever used in 25 years busting wood. My only complaint is the price but it is a high quality tool I know several people that have this same one and they all say it’s the best they have used

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Splits good but handles are not that great I'm on my second stihl splitting maul, first one I had for a day, it split firewood fine until it came to pounding wedges, first swing I took against a wedge the handle broke clean off right at the head due to bad grain orientation, they were good about giving me another one when I took it back, second one was better, got about 1 year out of it not pounding any wedges, 1st time I went to use wedges with it again the handle cracked just slightly, but again with the grain due to the way it was make. And I did not overstrike on any of the wedges, overall it's a good splitter tho and has power

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maul of all mauls This is my second Stihl axe. My first purchase was the Pro Splitting Axe, but wanted something heavier/easier to split big 24"-36"+ rounds. I knew this would be perfect, after witnessing how great the pro splitting axe is. And it didn't upset. There's no round that this maul can't conquer. 36" rounds of oak are no problem now and it can even split bigger, especially when working around the outside and then working in. I had to get used to the long length of the handle, since be used to the Pro Splitting Axe. But that was a problem created by own self. After a couple of overstrikes with zero defects, I got used to the length and wouldn't want it any other way. I've had this maul for about 2 years now, and with a hand full of full force overstrikes, the handle is just as strong and the head is just as tight. There's virtually zero difference from when it was new till now, except just for worn paint on the head. Which is obviously inevitable and isn't a problem. I'll out split a hydraulic splitter any day. High quality and super reliable. Worth every penny and I would recommend it to anybody splitting their own firewood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I I have been splitting firewood for over 30 years. I have used many different splitting mauls in the past but when I bought the Stihl maul I was amazed at how fast I was able to fill my wood racks. Most mauls look more like an ax but the Stihl has a much smaller cutting edge so it does not meet as much resistance when it strikes the wood. It will not get stuck, it just splits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found this to be a great addition to my fire wood tools The maul is an excellent weight and the angled head is great. The reinforced handle is also a nice feature. My one warning is to follow the instruction and not hit steel wedges. I have some deforming on the hammer side of the head from making this mistake. If you look up the brand name stamped on the head they sell aluminum wedges on-line. I have not purchased any of these because I just use a sledge hammer for pounding and the maul for splitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes splitting wood easier then a hot knife going through butter. I've been chopping/splitting wood since i was 14-15. Started out with smaller axes, my father bought this axe about a year or two ago and makes life ten times easier. I don't struggle with splitting wood, since I don't have a small frame, 6'2", 290lbs and hands as big as a bearcub, but this axe does most of the work for you. Rarely do i have to exert alot of energy to split wood, but the few times I do, this thing goes through smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'd think it was gas operated!! I've never split wood in my life until today. This maul is worth every penny. I was concerned that it may be too light but it went through pine and aspen in no time. I split wood for 3 hours before I got tired. Mostly because it was so much fun to use! The collar on the handle is handy but be careful. Hit it just right and it'll give you a zinger!!
