          The E-Z Load Extender allows you to transport lumber, drywall, ladders, kayaks and much more by quickly and easily extending your truck bed or roof rack. The versatile design can be used horizontally or vertically and features 5-adjustable heights and a 350 lb. weight capacity. This item is constructed of 2 in. tubular powder-coated steel that resists rust and fits in your 2 in. hitch receiver. When not in use, the load extender breaks down simply into 2-pieces for convenient and compact storage.

          I looked into making one of these but this unit was cheaper than I could buy the raw materials and its better made.

          This splitter was purchased by me in Atlanta and used there to split 10 cords of red oak and sweet gum. I now live at 7700' in CO and the engine and splitter work just as well up here. Knot filled logs that don't split are simply sheared through. Absolutely no complaints.

          Not only do angles make joints stronger, they also provide more consistent, straight corners. Simpson Strong-Tie offers a wide variety of angles in various sizes and thicknesses to handle light-duty jobs or projects where a structural connection is needed. Some can be bent (skewed) to match the project. For outdoor projects or those where moisture is present, use our Z-MAX zinc-coated connectors, which provide extra resistance against corrosion (look for a "Z" at the end of the model number).

          Simpson Strong-Tie connectors make projects easier to build while making them stronger and safer. They are engineered and tested to perform and are manufactured to the highest quality standards. Whether working on a home project or building a structure to comply with building codes, go with the choice of engineers and contractors, go with genuine Simpson Strong-Tie connectors.

          Does the metal shroud around the splitting wedge come down with the wedge or is that stationary so you cant put too big of a log?

          Answer: 
          That is the "dislodge bracket" and it is stationary. If the wedge gets stuck in a log that bracket will push on the log as the wedge retracts.
