Anyone whoʼs heard of Minnesota winter knows its not much good for anything other than bundling in more layers than your body will allow you to wear, dreaming about that one other season called “Not Winter,” and waiting for cabin fever to set in. Yet in 2001 one of those cold January days ignited a fire under the feet of Josh Larabee and his father. They spent an entire day trying to solve an issue that plagued the wear and tear work that wood splitting had on their bodies. In that one goal focused day, their ideas and experimentation paid off, and the Intvertasplit, a unique log splitting powerhouse, was born using the concept of a “tube within a tube” as an add-on to Joshʼs mini-excavator. Their passion for wood splitters has now spanned over a decade as they live, eat, and breathe the business. With an interest in keeping their log splitters built in the good old USA, Josh Larabee and his wife Christina still run the business in their hometown of Stacy, MN.
