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

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Splitter delivers as portrayed First two weeks of use I have split 7 cords of pine with ease. The Kohler engine runs smoothly and is certainly sufficient for splitting the conifers found in Colorado. The log catcher is a nice feature and would certainly recommend. The only bogus feature is the measuring tape displayed on the beam. The tape is totally destroyed after 2 hours of use. DHT should be able to do better. Really helps to have 2 people with the assembly process. September 1, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality Workmanship Assembly was not bad. After about 20 minutes of run time, started leaking hydraulic fluid at nipple by splitter control handle. Returned unit to local store and they took it back no problem. Bought an Ariens splitter from Home Depot and it was delivered assembled by their local dealer. Works great! August 18, 2015
