AL-KO 5200

Grey, cold and snowy.

And Mama is today saying "thank-you" to our most wonderful neighbours J&R for their idea to joint own the formidable AL-KO 5200, with which she has just transformed one of M's perfectly tidy log piles into an untidy mountain of comfort and joy.

The mantis-like AL-KO 5200 packs a punch of five tons, a couple of newtons more than its predecessor, a
five-foot-nothing woodswoman with an ageing axe and incipient spondylosis. The uncomplicated mechanism makes it a cynch to use, even for a partnership of sprogs with a combined age of eight (wearing safety goggles, leather gloves, steel toecaps and hard hats, of course).

Long live social ownership! And long live the AL-KO 5200!

...I'm also under 5ft... I was nearly even shorter after I played merry with a log splitting axe.
The new machine looks very useful. And safer.

Safer? LOL. Yes, I guess the community at large has less to fear now the dwarfish axe-lady of Carmine has hung up her blade!

A log-splitting machine. Hurray!
