I split maple logs that are over 2 feet in diameter and 10 feet long with a maul and 3 or 4 wedges. Those little guys should be easy. Watch the end grain, It will tell you where it wants to be halved. That is one of the reasons I start my logs that way. I don’t want to be cutting against the natural checks. I had one that made a full quarter twist in about 8 feet :-))
