What kinda hydraulic fluid does it use

Asked by: Randy
It depends on the 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 4.6 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Well built easy to use and start. I have used to split oak to cottonwood up to 24 inches. Splits it all I run it half speed no need to run it full open. I tried to stop it with knots and forks just gave it more speed splits it all so far. Stand up feature makes it nice for the bigger stuff also the catch plate on the side makes it nice. Do wish the catch plate was longer so it covered top of motor. Has plenty of speed to keep 2 guys busy. Gets the job done for firewood sure beats ripping with a saw. Nice unit with a nice price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used this splitter for over a year now here in western Washington. Have split 12 chords ... I have used this splitter for over a year now here in western Washington. Have split 12 chords so far with no problems. This volume is totally on old growth Big Leaf Maple wood. Some of the knotty rounds were up to 24 inches in diameter. But those did make the unit grunt. It has increased my yield of wood about 15 percent due to not having any knots that it would not handle. I used to have to burn the knots I could not split by hand. I would not buy a smaller unit nor do I need a bigger one. A dependable machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough piece of equipment This is a very strong log splitter. I have split some of the biggest and twisted oak logs I've ever seen with this machine. It splits every thing I put under it with ease. I use it every other week and never once had any issues. I would strongly recommend this splitter to any homeowner or even someone wanting to make some side money splitting wood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spilts well but dependability in question. Purchased about dec.2016. Has split everything that I have put into it, but nothing has been that tough or twisted or more then 24inches wide.. Have had a problem with motor to pump adapter breaking twice each after less then 10 hours work. second replacement has worked so far about 7 hours. Splitting is on hold until fall of 2017 when cooler

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Investment Originally I was going to get the 22 ton splitter but settled for the 27 and I'm glad I did. Easy to start and easy to operate. I would strongly suggest getting the log catcher accessory it will reduce the number of times you will bend over picking up the split piece but will prevent the hydraulic fluid filler cap from getting damaged.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A WORKHOURSE! We've had this wood splitter for months now, and have split over a dozen cords. We're glad we purchased the 27 ton splitter over the 22 ton. It plowed right through some of the knottiest fir and pine that the Northwest has to offer. Our wood rounds were so large in diameter we predominantly use the splitter in the vertical position. It is well constructed and easy to use. The side tray attached next to the ram is a nice feature. The only negatives we discovered was the hinge that allowes the splitter to move from vertical to horizontal could or should be shimmed up tighter to avoid a lot of vibration noise when used in the vertical position. This was solved with a few washers. We have had to retighten the hydraulic filter and some of the hoses between uses but this is only a vibration issue. The only other drawback were the tires. It would be nice to have a higher speed rated tire for transporting the splitter along the freeway. Other than that a great unit and might I ad " Made In The USA"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome features, I've been burning wood for 30 yrs and this is my first splitter, I haven't found a log in 15 face courds that it won't go thru, one trick I've learned is to shut gas off and empty carb every time and it won't flood and starts first pull.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to start I purchased at end of 2016 for spitting firewood. Splitter splits wood fine on even hard to split hardwood. But is very hard to start at times. It may start on 2nd pull or after 50 tries. You never know when this will happen.
