Answer: 
This model sold through Home depot comes with no engine oil or hydraulic fluid. You will have to determine what hydraulic fluid is suitable for your climate due to ambient temperature. AW32, AW46, AW68 are the grades use. Because I live in Florida I use AW68 which has a temp range of 50-100F. AW46 is good for 32-80F. AW32 for the colder operating areas.

This model sold through Home depot comes with no engine oil or hydraulic fluid. You will have to determine what hydraulic fluid is suitable for your climate due to ambient temperature. AW32, AW46, AW68 are the grades use. Because I live in Florida I use AW68 which has a temp range of 50-100F. AW46 is good for 32-80F. AW32 for the colder operating areas. There is a sticker on the splitter tank with a temp range chart for the three AW grades. You will also need teflon tape for the hydraulic hose hookup.
The splitter needs a minimum of 5 gallons hydraulic to operate and tops out at 6.5 gallons. I don't think HD sells the fluid in these grades or quantities. Check with them. I bought mine at the local auto parts store. Dirty Hand is specific about using AW(Anti-Wear) grade. With tax runs under $50 for a 5 gallon tub. Recommend you fill to the max.
The engine takes 10w-30 oil. Read Less

I'm a slight-of-build man closer to 70 than I would like to be but worked construction all my life. With forethought I was able to break down the crate on the pickup bed, unload, and assemble it by myself. However I would recommend you getting a friend who is physically disposed for this type of work, safety being the utmost consideration in these types of endeavors. You will have to hook up the hydraulic hoses, put on the wheels, and load the rail onto the trailer, not necessarily in that order. This splitter has worked well for me. Read Less

Answer: 
It comes in a wooden crate, they load it with forklift,,, Yes assembly is required,,, directions not the best but goes together pretty easy. If you can operate the log splitter you should be okay with assembly.It is easier to assemble with a second person helping.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Workhorse Log Splitter That Does Not Disappoint This is my first log splitter but it seems to be professional quality from its design to performance. Each small engine has peculiar attributes and I found out that pulling the starting rope on a cold engine more than once with the choke on, flooded the engine. Now, I simply pull the starter rope once with the choke on and the throttle 1/3 of the way, turn the choke off and the engine starts on the second pull with the throttle at ~1/2 setting. I have split ~ 6 cords of both green and seasoned lodgepole pine with some fairly large knots ranging from 8"-20" in diameter and it rarely hesitates. On the larger diameter pieces, I do turn the logs over from one end to the other as it does bind near the end of the turn. As others mentioned, the gas tank allows the splitter to run for a very long time and the measuring tape on the beam is obliterated after a cord or two, but I'm not sure what purpose the tape is used for since the lengths of the logs should have been cut correctly already. Customer service from Dirty Hands is outstanding as I could not figure out how to install the log catcher, but overall the installation instructions were clear. The crate it came in is heavy (~550 lbs) so get a strong assistant to get it where you plan to put it together. Overall, you will not be disappointed if you choose this professional grade log splitter as it makes splitting wood easy and enjoyable. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome log splitter My Dirty Hands log splitter arrived faster than I expected. As all splitters it is larg and heavy, Putting it together wasn't really very hard, uncrating it almost took longer. I think the whole process took an hour. Once I filled it with oil and fuel it literally took one pole to start. I filled the fuel tank up and started splitting. Figured I'd see how long a tank would last. It lasts about 3 hours. Longer than I wanted to split wood. I have had it for three weeks now. It allows me to split wood at my pace, instead of trying to split all my wood in a hard weekend with a rented one. I figure I've already saved $ 300.00 in rental charges. I live in a forest filled with large fur and maple trees, this splitter has no problem with any round I put on it. And the cycle time for the ram is really fast. I work with a lot of tools and this one has become a favorite. Can't believe I waited so long to get it. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Machine! This is a solid and great working unit. Assembly was easy and it really works well. I am VERY happy with this one. Highly recommended. Also, the shipping was fast and it was packaged well. The delivery driver kindly placed the load right in my work zone which was a real help. You will need to buy about 5 gallons of hydraulic fluid and a quart of motor oil. This is a great value that will provide a lifetime of split wood for me. Can't say enough good about this splitter and the entire transaction. 5 stars the whole way. This unit does make a very loud rattling noise from the pivot bolt when in the vertical position. It is no big deal and is easily quieted with a wrap of some "rescue tape" (another FINE product) Buy with confidence. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellant Machine !!! I highly recamend this spliter ! I've had mine for two seasons and there is nothing it cant split. I run mine at about 3/4 throtle , sips gas. Im very pleased with my purchase. April 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by the wedges need more engineering The first time out the splitter started to leak oil from a coupling on the three way valve a problem caused from the assembly person not the fault of the quality of the splitter . The problem is the quality of the wedges the 2 way and the 4 way started to split their welds at the bottom and went up about 4 inches but DirtyHands are replacing both the wedges for free. All I can say this product did work well for the 8 hours that I used it so far April 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Log Splitter This is the best and most rigid log splitter for the money! It took 45min. for assembly and fluid fill. It splits hardwood rounds on half speed without stalling or hesitating. Starts with first pull even when cold. Definitely recommended! October 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is better than Popcorn Not only was this easy to put together, and better than renting one from your local equipment rental. It not only cut through the very large blocks of wood, weighing a good 300 to 350 lbs and a good 3 ft or better around. My son said the first time we used it that he would work until it ran out of gas. He ran out of energy and complained unlike other splitters we had rented this wouldn't run out of gas. I can't say enough good things about this machine. Except Kudos to them. It is worth every penny and then some. In two sessions we cleared the upper yard of wood, now I have the wood from three trees in the lower yard to do. I am confident that this will take less time and easier than in the past. I am happy I purchased this machine and you will be too. Whether its vertical or horizontal, it made short work . I no longer have to split wood with a splitting maul, which I have done since 1980 July 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by log splitter does as advertised Product came from store to home in a box to be assembled by buyer. Not difficult but without any fluids in product. Need to figure cost of oil and hydraulic fluids in purchase. Worked like a charm first time and without any problems. December 8, 2015
