Rated 5 out of 5 by Should have purchased years ago After years of swinging the old 8.5# splitting maul, I wound up with nerve damage in my arm and needed another way to provide wood to heat out home. 2 months of research, narrowed down the list to the cub cadet or the ariens 27 ton model. I usually have red and white oak, locust, and maple rounds and decided that the 277cc engine with the metal diamond plate wheel fenders this cub cadet seemed to be the most bang for the buck. Well a few weeks after I ordered she showed up was easy to un-crate, all the fluids were where the levels should be. Followed the easy to understand instructions and in 20 minutes had her assembled, the pump primed, added a gallon of premium gas and she fired on the 1st pull! Had a few red oak rounds the big stuff you keep pushing aside to split some other time slid the nastiest round she was 43" and 18" long with knots twists etc and put the machine vertical in just a few pulls of the lever I was hooked! My gosh this was effortless, short of moving the rounds to the machine. As the next 3 hours passed and a whopping gallon of gas consumed, I went through an entire cord of year old nasty oak! Checked all the fluids again all where they should be and slid her into the garage for next time. This baby is even easy to move around by hand in the driveway, and seems well balanced. I hope every time I use her in the future I'm as pleased as my first time. If you heat your home with wood and are in the market for a great splitter for a great price so far I feel the ls27 is the best bang for the buck! I'm actually looking forward to splitting the next round and can wake up the next day pain free for a change!!! I just wish I would have purchased this thing years ago! November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good solid well made machine and Lots of POWER! Had some 3 year old hedge and oak saved up for machine, and took splitter directly to wood pile when I got it home. I let the engine warm for a few minutes and ran throttle just below 1/2 opening and it split logs with no effeort. The engine stayed at constant RPM and splitter worked very smoothly and has plenty of power. The hedge I split had knots and was 1 to 2 foot dia. pieces. I have been an automechanic for over 45 years and there is nothing I would change about the design or operation of this machine, and I usually am able to find something that should have been designed differently either for safety reasons or to make operation of machine easier. Glad I purchased this machine. March 19, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by overall best buy 27 ton splitter has plenty of power. Cub Cadet engine starts easy, first pull. Easily manuvered. Log trays have issues, bending and twisting, bolts backing out and if you don't catch the split, it falls on the choke lever bending it. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very impressed with this machine! Just got my splitter today,had a pile of wood ready to split,it split anything i threw at it. I had many pieces 38" across and 25"high solid oak with lots of knots went threw everything IAm very impressed. I did a lot of research and finally chose this model because the cub cadet dealer said he cuts 100 cords of wood a year with this machine. He said this would the only machine I would need the rest of my life. I think I believe him now. October 9, 2011
