Customer Questions & Answers

Does this splitter come with hydraulic and engine oil?

Asked by: Norb
No, both must be added. Engine oil required is 20 ounces, and hydraulic fluid is minimum of 5 gallons for operation and 6.5 gallons is full tank.

Are the hydraulic hoses wrapped with wire spring to eliminate vibration?

In the photos on the Home Depot web site, the springs are not on the splitter shown in the vertical position.
Asked by: Mike
Yes, and the hydraulic system is self-priming. There are no consumer adjustments needed out of the box.

I have a Toyota Tacoma which has a 49" width between fender wells and a 6' long bed will this suffice for picking up this item then?

I have limited access to a full size truck.
Asked by: jeff
I picked the crate up at HD and it fit in the back of my Dodge Ram 1500, 6'4" bed. I was able to close the tail gate. I was able to disassemble the crate in the truck bed and assemble the splitter with no problem. Recommend you have an extra hand to unload the rail. I see no problem with a Tacoma but the crate is about is 72"long x 33" wide x 20" tall. You may or may not be able to close the truck gate and a ratchet strap down may be required to secure the end of the crate. But the crate will fit in the back of your truck.

If unit is shipped to store, is it ready to tow home or is assembly required.

Asked by: dave
I had it shipped to the store. When I picked it up it was still in the crate and HD loaded the crate onto my pickup. No, they will not assemble it for you but you can ask. 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.

This is the perfect spliter to use if your by your self and have no helper to work the lever. It cranks on first pull after the initial choke pull without a hitch. I got the standard log catcher which is a must, the table version would even be better as the standard one is shorter and does not allow bigger pieces to stay in hands reach. Only thing I would change about this spliter would be that the wood splinter gets clogged up in the top spliter guide at the left end. It has to be unclogged by using a screw driver to pry out splinters after each use. This actually causes the wood not to rest as flat as it could while splitting. Other than that it has split anything I have put into it, including knotty/twisty Hickory which is one of the worst woods to split.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Splitter works great! It did have a hydraulic fluid leak. I called customer service and they sent a replacement part to me. They were extremely helpful. The closest service center is too far, so I chose to replace the part myself. I have already split many cords of pine and oak. Very happy with this splitter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Engine won't start Bought this unit after seeing the many glowing reviews. Arrived quickly after ordering and assembly was pretty easy for one person. Didn't come with any fluids; expect to add about 5 gallons of hydronic fluid. Once assembled, I had a heck of a time getting the engine to start. Took about 2 hours of pulling and waiting to get it started, after which it ran fine for an hour. I was never able to get the engine to start again after that. Called Dirty Hands and was told they couldn't do much and to take it to a Kohler authorized repair center. Not the answer I was hoping for. Took it back to my local Home Depot and now ordering a different one. I can say, for the hour the unit was functional, I was impressed with the operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but has hydraulic issues This piece of equipment worked well until I split about two cord of wood, then I started having hydraulic leaks. Apparently whomever assembled the unit did not tighten all of the hoses. The smaller top hoses were the original issue but tightening them easily resolved the issue. Today as I was running it, I again noticed hydraulic fluid leaking, this time it is leaking on the house which runs from the holding tank to the pump. The elbow is broken right where the hose clamp is holding then hose onto the elbow. It appears that the hose was pushed on the elbow about 2-1/2" the crack is at about the 1-1/2" mark below the pump. I have now split about 4 cords but do not believe I should use this equipment until I hear from the manufacturer on this problem. I do not know if it is a problem with all the units, or just this one. The splitter works well, I would like to keep it , customer service will determine whether or not I do depending upon their level of customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Splitter!! I have split about 2 cords of oak so far with this splitter, some of which was almost 24" round. It handled it very well only bogging a little in very knotty sections. Was concerned about getting the 22 ton instead of the 28 ton. I'm happy with my decision - does what I need it to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 22 Ton Gas Log Splitter The 22 Ton Dirty Hand Tools Log Splitter I got from Lowes has performed extremely well. It starts very easily and has no trouble splitting oak and beech that I use for winter fire wood. I use the splitter in both the vertical mode and the horizontal mode with the log catcher.
