One answer says yes, other no. I ordered mine on Friday, and it is expected this week.
Do I need to buy fluid for it to work? It will be delivered to a location that is not need near a Home Depot.

Answer: 
It does NOT come with any hydraulic fluid. Not a drop. NONE. This was a major factor for me since Lowe's carries essentially the exact same item "filled with premium hydraulic fluid", already assembled, and for only about a $1 difference in price at the time I made my purchase. Assembly is not very difficult, but the parts are heavy so two people would be better than one.

Answer: 
No but it's pretty easy...two people would be the best...you also need about 7 gallons of hydraulic fluid and engine oil (less than a quart). It will take about an hour with two people mostly assembled.

Answer: 
It depends on the temp...you can use tranny fluid at low temps but I'd get the stuff it calls for...I think the stuff I got was at kraken auto parts and it was about 70 bux 7 gallons....easy to get fluid but just don't mix different brands.

27-Ton Gas Log Splitter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one nice log splitter This is very easy to use my five year old pulled the handle for me doing the real heavy logs. By the time you run out of gas if you are doing it by yourself. the log catch is nice aka shelf. Noise is not to bad and it starts up very easy. Made in USA and the designed in Colorado. tow it around with the Side by Side and truly if you are doing a lot of wood (more than 15 cords) get one that splits into fourths but this is one awesome machine easy to stand it up on end Love it would get one over and over again !!! One thing to note is it is close to being on the heavy side to lift and hitch up but really not bad

This is an amazingly powerful machine, makes short work of even the knottiest logs. Assembly is pretty straight forward, took about two hours to do alone, having a helper now and again would speed this up. The machine arrives totally dry so you'll need a quart of oil for the engine, five gallons of the correct hydraulic fluid (put only four in and allow it to fill the cylinder and hosed before adding the last one or you'll have a mess), and obviously ethanol free fuel. The hydraulic system self primes so that is easy. I also took precaution with wrapping the threads on the hydraulic hoses before connecting them. So far, Its chewed through about four cords of pine with no issue. Really recommend this splitter if you are more than just a weekend warrior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good splitter Works well, easy to start, plenty of force. Easy assembly watch YouTube video. Only negative is description doesn't say no fluids included. So add on another $50 for hydro fluid and oil

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great splitter Worth every penny!!! Very heavy duty and starts 1st pull!!! Doesn't come with hydraulic fluid but it wasn't too expensive. (About 70 bux at kragens). Great buy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWSOME Bought this online even though some reviews were poor. Couldn't turn it away for the price, a lot of splitter for the money, watch the you-tube video about it ...you will want one. Comes in a huge crate...over 600lb. about 3 hours to assemble...I took my time and used a lot of locktite , also put some of the commercial grade padding from the shipping box between the I-beam and the towing bar to keep the noise down....it does help. didn't start at first....hey dummy, turn the switch to run!. anyways, it runs fantastic at all speeds and I split 3-4 nites of oak in about 15 min. don't know if I need to break-in the engine but Im using it at 2/3 throttle for now. BTW napa has the aw46 oil. ERIC A.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent product for decent price Splitter was well packaged, arrived without damage, although the semi truck couldn't deliver to my home so have an alternate site with a fork lift available. Assembly was straight forward, but you will need a shop crane or helper to maneuver sections. Was shipped without hydraulic oil or motor oil so factor that cost into purchase price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the one! Love the design of this tool. Just split about five cord of Notty spruce that was freshly cut wet and very green. This machine chewed through nots that were as large as six inches across with no trouble. Love the Kohler engine. If it seems difficult to pull you may have stalled the engine under cylinder load. Once it restarts it is just fine. Check all of your hydraulic line fittings at first start up. One of mine was loose and leaked, but after I tightened it I had no further problems. The wood handling rack is a God send and makes all the difference in the world. I would also recommend replacing all the nuts on the wood handling rack with nylon nuts. I highly recommend this product. Don't hesitate to get the 27 ton ram. You won't regret this decision. It Flys through 48 to 60 inch rounds. Great job Dirty Hand Tools.
