Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
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 Works faster than I can I bought this 22 ton DHT unit a few months back online. HD is right down the street from us and after a bunch of research I settled on getting the model from Dirty Hands as opposed to the unit Home Depot carries. The performance of this product matches the reviews posted everywhere else. Assembly is easy and packaging great. Make sure you fill the engine with engine oil and the hyd tank with oil before you run it! April 28, 2015
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 replacement of first unit Got a replacement splitter after the first one had motor problems, and it works well Most impressive was the customer service from dirty hands they called me after I wrote a not so good review on my first unit. And they tried making it good. Even rushed the replacement unit. If customer service stays this concerned about a bad review and continues helping customers the way they helped me, even if the price is a little higher. I will be looking for more of their products. Because customer service counts. April 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a high quality and fast running machine This is tthe best log splitter I have used. Very well built and many quality features. For the type of work it does you need a machine thatn will be built tough enough to handle it and this one does hands down. The speed it operates will out pace you. Awesome product and the price is a deal. October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommend Shipped as promised within 7-10 days at my doorstep. Assembly was very easy but you need at least two persons to lift very heavy sections. Took 5 gallons of hydraulic oil and about 1 qt. engine oil for the Kohler. Started on very first pull and after about 5-6 reps with lever everything was working perfectly. I split about 2 cord of red oak and this splitter went through everything. Did a ton of research before I decided on this unit. Glad I did. You wont be disappointed in this splitter. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This Splitter is a Beast I just got this splitter last week . I put it together without much difficulty. This week I put it to the test. I was splitting some very large red and white oak. This splitter went through the logs like butter. My back and shoulders are saying thank you. I should have made this purchase years ago. This is nothing short of excellence. April 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The SHIZEL!!! This thing works like crazy! Split a cord of hickory and oak today, split it like butter, never strained the purring like kitten Koehler engine. Super fast shipping. Absolutely stupid proof instructions! EZ assembly! Did it by my self in an hour. Buy it you will NOT regret it. July 14, 2014
