Woodcutter Splitting Maul
Woodcutter Splitting Maul is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a beast Just split a cord of pine with this Maul. What a huge difference between this maul and the box store product. I truly have been missing out. This maul goes through wood like butter. I didn’t have any issues with the handle as I usually hit what I’m aiming at. I can see this maul lasting a long time and is worth the price. Great job Stihl with another great product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing handle Used just a few times. Ash handle split badly on a normal strike of an oak round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great power I bought this maul at a local lawn equipment store about two months ago. Since then I have done a lot of splitting with it and have really enjoyed the power, balance and ease of use. The weight of the maul seems to be in that sweet spot that isn't too heavy to swing all day but heavy enough to power through most any wood. I will say the ash handle is beginning to get chewed up near the head of the maul due to over-striking on a bunch of stringy, hard to split sycamore. For this reason I really wish I bought the Pro Maul with the metal protector. I do think I will buy the Pro pretty soon and use this one as a back up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks good, feels good, loose head. Purchased from my local Stihl dealer, took home and filed a sharp edge on it (great steel!), and began busting wood. Since everything I have at the house is already split, I was picking out some of the bigger ones and just giving them another split to try it out. In about five hits, the head loosened up. The wedge isn't loose, I'm not afraid that the head will fly off, it's loose on the bottom end where bottom of the eye contacts the wood. It doesn't look like this one had the complete "interference" fit all the way on the handle. I should have questioned it in the store, but I was in a hurry and didn't think twice about grabbing a Stihl product without inspection. Lesson learned. I'm going to shoot Stihl an email and see what we can do about it. Other than that, it seems like great maul, good steel, and a pleasure to bust wood with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value I had borrowed a friend's maul to begin splitting wood. It had a nice hickory handle and I had nothing to compare it to...then I discovered Stihl products and thought that it's time to buy my own maul. I thought, let's see if Stihl makes a maul comparable in quality to its yard tools. Wow! What a difference between average and Stihl. I would have bought the pro had the store carried it. It is fun splitting the wood, and it's very well balanced for effective swinging and splitting. What a great maul.Another winner by Stihl.
