Rated 3 out of 5 by Failed expectations First impression was that this machine was great! I did a lot of research and spoke to several owners of this unit and felt that this machine should be more than I would need. I figured I would split at most 8-10 cord of oak and maple a year. I'm not in the business, just a homeowner trying to save money by splitting my own wood. The reviews on this splitter seem overwhelmingly positive. First session using the splitter started out well. Filled up the gas and it started on the first pull. In fact, it started each time on the first pull. Operated the machine until the gas ran out. Took a break and repeated. On the third fill, it started out in the vertical position no problems until a few minutes in began splitting an approximately 20" oak log, it was struggling a little bit and it wasn't moving. The operator backed it up and POP! The wedges eyes, which connect the piston to the wedge via a pin snapped off (see photos). This should not have happened. Called HD and they said to return it no problem. I probably wound up with a bad cast wedge. It happens. Returned it. Probable going to get. 27T model. Worked great before that. July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product I ordered the Ariens log splitter with some uncertainty after reading some of the testimonials of the delivery nightmares but after researching this product on line I decided to go ahead and purchase this log splitter especially after reading all of the positive testimonials on its performace. Boy was I glad I bought this, the first load of logs I split up it went through them like a hot knife going through butter, I'm talking straight grain red oak, hickory and mesquite. I am very well pleased with the way it operates and started on the third pull after putting fuel in it. Happy Customer!!! March 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent & powerful log splitter at a good price Product arrived in a timely manner despite winter weather & snow. The log splitter came mounted on a pallet, framed in wood & wrapped in clear plastic. It required some simple assembly. The engine already had motor oil & once gassed up, it started easily even in near freezing temperature. The hydraulic reservoir was full but after the cylinder was cycled a few times, it required another gallon or so of ISO32 light hydraulic oil purchased locally. Once warmed up, it split 18" wet oak & 22" dry cottonwood with only the slightest grunt. It retracts quickly & the catcher keeps the split wood from falling to the ground. Very pleased with this 22 ton splitter! December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works for me Have used this now on the farm for over a month and what a machine. I have put red/white oak, hickory, cherry, maple at it and it has eaten them all with pride. Goes through knots without any problem or strain on the machine at all. Light weight to move around by hand if needed or hooks up to my 4 wheeler to move right into the woods to work there. On the gas dept., I run out before the machine does but splits a load for my cart to haul back to the pile without any problem. Small for storing in the barn in a tight place. Did buy an extra gallon of hydro oil and it took most of that. Starts very easy and I can split more wood in half hour with this that 2 hours with a maul my old age says no more. I see no need for a heavier machine with the power this has to spare. Very happy with this machine with more use on the farm with coming heating season. October 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A thing of beuaty is a joy forever. Love My Ariens Splitter, easy to Maneuver in any position Horizontal or Vertical. Splits with ease, I'm using mostly all Oak left over from last year very dry and hard, use to split by hand, with this splitter never again. Shipping impressed Me very much, the Unit shipped to a local shop for assembly and all fluids added and then delivered to My house, ready to use, and use I did. Thank you home Depot and Ariens.
