Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Basic Log Splitter I ordered this from Home Depot and put it together myself and had help lifting the main cylinder into place. I split over 10 cords last year and I'm probably gong to split more this year. I did have a dirty carb after sitting all summer but that's not the splitter's fault that was my fault for leaving gas untreated in there all those months. Took the carb apart and cleaned it up put it back together and it runs just like new. October 30, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by the worse product ever. after just 16 hours of use, on/off switch broke, and then the spark plug came undone. then the worse part, for more then two months I tried customer services / warranty, never got any good support, machine is still broken. October 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seems to do the job well Delivery in my specific case wasn't handled very well. Unpacking from shipping crate was straightforward. Assembly wasn't terribly difficult, but did have a few small challenges in interpreting the instructions. Customer service, however, has been horrible from the manufacturer, North American Tools. They insist that any questions/problems are handled through a webpage. They're quick to assign a web ticket, but that's as far as it goes, no further response. They won't answer the phone, insisting that it's inefficient compared to the web. I ended up going to Tractor Supply to pickup the missing parts. August 5, 2014
