Returned after splitting 1 chord. Slow cycle time, 19 seconds is too slow to be productive. Honda engine is great, should be a 9 or greater horsepower to drive through thick Oak or hardwoods. Easy to move and reposition by hand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lt2 Great splitter for the price
I have used a variety of splitters, both factory and home made, over many years. This splitter has plenty of power and a tank of gas runs longer than I thought it would. This splitter is set up for both horizontal and vertical splitting . The horizontal position is not very convenient because the wheel gets in the way of lifting up heavy logs. I only planned to use it vertical, so this is not a problem for me.
Set up took about 45 minutes and the Honda engine started first pull. So far I have split about 1 1/2 cord of oak wood with no issues.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gargil Great Log Splitter
I am very pleased with the log splitter. I have split over three cords of green white oak and some one year old white oak and pecan. A lot of the cuts were 20" diameter with knots and it split everything I put under it. There is some hesitation on the tough knots but it continues on through. The Honda engine is excellent as it cranks on the first pull every time. I thought at first the small engine may not be enough but it does great and uses very little fuel. The trailer tongue is a little heavy and the tongue stand would be better if it had a spring loaded latch instead of pin. I shopped a lot of other splitters and I think this is one of the better ones out there for the price and performance. Overall this was a good purchase for me.

Don't wait until you're 60+ years old to buy one. Save your back while you're young. Honda engine
is a proven workhorse, and you can exact sweet revenge on all those knots you've had to bust thru with a maul and wedge over the years. A couple things I've found: make sure the gas cap is closed
with a couple audible clicks, or the fuel tank may vacuum lock and engine will quit. And if the wife complains about getting it in the vertical position (I'm talking about the log splitter) tell her to run the ram to the full out position and it'll lift a lot easier, and you can get back to your beer. When lowering the ram should be back fully retracted. A great product.

I absolutely love this log splitter. I just went through about 4 trees in one day. No problem breaking through logs with ease. Highly, highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amy Research proved correct
I researched log splitters before spending $1000+ on a machine and all sites said this one was worth the money. It is true. This is an amazing machine! Sturdy and a workhorse. Starts easily EVERY time and only cuts out when it runs out of gas. It is splitting knotty cherry wood like its butter.

Added fuel to this machine and started on the 2nd pull of the cord - a real workhorse - has taken 20" diameter oak logs and has gone through them like butter.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Midwestgirl77 Great splitter, but getting it home was a nightmare
I bought this splitter online for my husband as a xmas present. I had it delivered to my closest Home Depot location. When I ordered it, it never said it would be in pieces and I would have to put it together. I asked a friend to meet me there because he had a truck and could haul it home for me. When we arrived they came out with a fork-lift and the splitter was inside a crate and they never offered to assemble it for me. When we got it home it was turned the wrong way and the wheels faced the fenders, so we had to figure out a way to lift this 900 lb splitter to get it turned the right way and walk it down the ramps. It took us over 3 hours and our backs really felt it. Since we got it off the truck and put it together, it has run very smooth. Starts right away and has split some heavy timber. Happy with the product, not happy with the delivery process.
